FORTUNE AWAITS MISSING SON. SEARCH FOR MAN WHO LEFT HOME 40 YEARS AGO. Mrs. Marian Ida Stockton, of Chinley, is bequeathed by her father,the late Mr. Law Binns, of Rose Hill, Clifton (who left £106,018), no less than £35,000 upon trust for her and her issue, and he also left £15,000 to each his sons, Walter and Harry. These two reside Australia, but Harry, who fought France during the war, is already on his way to this country.There something both dramatic and romantic in the fact that John William Binns, another son left £15,000 if he can found within two years. Nothing has been heard of him for many years, and it is intended to advertise the wealth that is waiting for a claimant. The task is rendered more difficult by the fact that,so far as is known, no photograph of the missing son is in existence. The son simply lost touch with the family after going out to make a career, and his father wished to make fair provision for him. If his whereabouts is not discovered within two years the sum will revert the testator's widow, and if the search is unavailing a share of the residue of the estate accruing to the missing son is to pass to the testator's grandchildren, or the survivors of them.
