FOUND POCKET BOOK IN RIVER. From Monday's Daily. . One day last week, a man travel ing via auto, from some place in Kansas,' to a point in Iowa, passed through the city, and over the ferry at the river. In doing so he was willing to assist In the operation of the ferry, and went to take up the apron which admits the passage of the vehicles on the boat, and in so doing allowed a pocket book to fall out of his pocket into the river, which floated away and no one the wiser. Arriving at Glenwood. he discovered his loss and immediately phoned to Mr. Richardson, asking him to see if he could find the pock et book. It so happened ako that some one carelessly has allowed one of the small boats of Mr. Richardson to get away. He had to take another one and go after it. On his return he espied the well soaked purse lying just at the water's edge and securing it, was soon in com munication with its owner, who re turned and received the same do nating $20.00 to Mr. Richardson for his service. The pocket book contained a $500.00 government bond. $135.00 in money, and other papers, in all $S00.00. Had it have fallen into the hands of some irre sponsible person it would probably never have been returned, but in the hands of Mr. Richardson it was safe. HAS THE FLU TOO. From Monday's Daily.
