and immediately buoted up Chief of
Pulice Slater and told that official a
rather interesting' story of a runaway
boy. He staled that his brother,
James Murphy, who resides on a farm
five miles northeast of Weeping
Water, has a son who is inclined to be
somewhat disobedient, and the father
occasionally found it necessary to pun
ish the lad. Saturday noon the boy
disappeared from home, but he was
traced to this city, and Mr. Murphy
had come after him. lie is described
as being about thirteen years old,
rather tall for his age, and fleshy;
. light complexioned.
The chief remembered having
noticed a lad who answered that de
scription on Main street yesterday.
The boy had a satchel with him, which
he left at Shinn's restauiant, saying
that he would send for it later. It was
learned, upon farther investigation,
that he went over to Pacific Junction
on a freight train last evening.
The officers at the Junction wore
called up by telephone and asked if
they had seen anything of the missing
boy. Tney replied that they had not,
and it is therefore probable that be
went on through to some other point.
It is thought he will send for his
satchel in a few days, and his where
abouts can be thus ascertained.
