Stranger Said Doggett had Willed
Him Blossom House.

Patrolman Jack Farrell was called upon yesterday to take Albert B. Clanton, an aged man, from the Blossom house on Union avenue. The old man said where he had seen in the papers where Fred S. Doggett, proprietor of the hotel, had made a will making him sole beneficiary. He had come to "take charge and run the place," he said. Clanton also said that he was the owner of land at Hattiesburg, Miss.

When placed in charge of the Humane agent at the city hall, Clanton said he had a sister, Mrs. Bessie Bethea, 1759 Preston place, St. Louis, Mo. He will be held awaiting word from relatives.
