Comes After Her Son.
A pathetic scene was enacted at
the Burlington station this afternoon
when No. 23 was about to leave for
Omaha, when Mrs. John Roetter was
called on to part from her little
grandson, Joe Roetter, w hom she had
raised from babyhood to a lad of 11
Mrs. Roetter was taken entirely by
surprise, when the mother of the
child swooped down on the city this
morning, and after getting advice
from a lawyer, went to the Catholic
school this morning and took her son
away, against the wishes and over
the protests of his grandmother and
grandfather. Mrs. Roetter went to
the mother and endeavored to
distiade her, from her purpose, but to
no avail, so with tears the grand
mother embraced the little fellow
and allowed him to depart.
The little boy is not very strong
and was doing nicely in the school,
and it seems the law should protect
the grandparents in their custody
of the child, since they have had the
care of him for so long.

To Catch Chicken Thieves.
The Nebraska City Daily Tress Is
responsible for the following manner
of detecting chicken thieves, which is
certainly a novel one: "One way to
catch a chicken thief which worked
well not long ago In a town not over
fifty miles away. The owner of the
hennery placed a largo tin tub over
tho chlnken houso door. When the
thief opened it the tub caught him
on the noodle, awakened the owner
of tho chickens and the thief couldn't
escape until his identity becamo
known to the Irate chicken fancier.
For tho sake of the family no names
will be made public."
