Davis, deceased. .-iaie of qnainted have noted tho undercurrent of fcorrow in her life. To a few she has confessed how hard Ihe struggle has been, but she gives most of the credit to her mother, Mrs. Bennett, who. she says, has been both mother and father (o her. since the death of Mr. Bennett nearly twenty years ago. The will of t'be millionaire tnrf king was filed for probate Wednesday morning before Judge Rives, and disposes of property estimated nt 325,000,0/00. Of this, a'bout 820,- O0.0,000 will fee equally divided between Baldwin's t\V'o favoiite daughters, Clara S-toaker, -known RS Clara Harold, and Anita Mc'Claughry. It will take the sum of 82,000,000 to settle all indebtedness against the dead turfman's estate. To Mrs. E. ,7. Baldwin, Wie miJliouaire's fourth wife, the young widow living in San " Francisco, the will provides an undivided one-third share in the property known as the Baldwin Annex, a vacant lot in San Francioeo, said to be worth 8500,000, but which is beavily mortgaged. The <oash value of her share is therefore scarcely one- fiftieth of tbe great estate, but it is stated that'all legatees were consulted during tho process of drawing the will, and that satisfaction was expressed by all. HO that no contest on the part of tho widow is expected. Tho dramatic episode in connection with the liling of the will was tbe discovery of a third daughter, of whoso existence Baldwin's intimate friends had no knowledge. This is Zelda tthclby of San Franoisco, and she is acknowledged as Baldwin's child and given 200 acres of land in the Rtincho La Puente.
