The estateis valued at $3123 and one of the assets in the Dow cancer cure, so-called, a contract for the purchase of which is included in the estate. Three thousand dollars is due on this contract. There are also certain patent rights.

There are four children cut off by the will. They are Lee Dow of LaMoille, Ill.; Floyd Dow of Princeton, Il.; Mrs. Leona West of Tampico, Ill.; and Mrs. Maud Denison, of the same place as her sister. All of the estate is left to the widow."
