THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE , FRIDAY , MARCH 23 , 1906
If tlie editor of every paper in
the central west will rcpnblislt
K these lines says the Auburn
Herald , there is no question hut
that Dr. S. I * . JJyers. of Seclcy-
ville , Ind. , will recover his little
son who was stolen away from
his home one year ago last May.
Dr. Bycrs has spent his entire re
sources in search for his child
and unless the bijj hearted mem
bers of the press come to his as
sistance , his son will grow up a
outlaw and an outcast amonjr the
lowest people of the earth. It is
a cause that should appeal to
everyone , and no father reading
these lines can do so .vithout a
quickening at the heart and a
sympathetic throb. It is be
lieved that if this article is re
printed in the newspapers it will
form an endless chain that will
uncover the lost boy's conceal
ment and return him to his dis
tracted parents. In doing this
the profession of journalism will
be fulfilling one of its highest
destinies. There is a reward ol
$500 awaiting any information
tjiat will lead to the boy's re
covery. No question will be
asked , and if the abductor him
self would deliver the boy to his
parents he would not be molested.
The following is a description of
the lost boy : Richmond Hyers ,
if alive , was six years old last
July , is of light complexion , lias
gray eyes left eye noticeably
crossed , has small V shaped nick
in the left ear , has a sharp chin
and a narrow projecting fore
head. He is rather small for his
age and is unusually bright and
intelligent , taking after the man
ner of a boy much older. Dr.
Byers has searched among the
roving bands .that frequent the
United States and believes that
his son can be found among trav
eling junk dealers , so-called
horse traders or movers. He
does not think the boy was stol
en by genuine gypsies. He
thinks hewas taken by u wander
ing band which has used him for
the purpose of begging in the
towns along the route.

Now And Then.
The Omaha papers announced
last week thatt one-third of the
children were kept out of school
on account of "Pink eve. " This
strange malady seems to have
control of the entire west , and
while not dangerous , is exceed
ingly annoying. The physcians
believe it to be some germ that
creates an infhimalion when
brought in contact with the eye.
Many cf the local school children
have been out of school for the
past week or so nursing inflamed
"The best attribute of man
kind. that which comes the near
est to the divine is just simple ,
old fashioned kindness.1 said a
Kails City man the other night
as he sat in front of the grate at
the iClks club. "I was greatly
impressed with the statement of
that salvation army Booth woman
to the elTcct that she had never
stood between anyone and happi
ness. " After a moment lie con
tinued , "I have been away from
home all week , and when one is
on the road he often sees little
things , kindly little things , that
leave a pleasant memory and in
crease one's respect for his kind. "
"What did you sec this week , "
asked a listener. And this is
what he told.

'It wasn't much of an inci
dent , just a little touch of nature
in fact , but I like to think of it
now that it is all over and I wish
I knew the girl.
The Omaha stub on Tuesday
morningof last week was running
late through the snow. The
passengers were the usual con
glomerate one finds on a local
and among them was a heavy
eyed , tired looking young woman
with an infant. The child cried
incessantly and the weary young
mother cried with it as she tried
to hush it to sleep. Across the
aisle from her sat a young fellow
attired in cheap and boisterous
clothing. The crying baby an
noyed him and he tried to forget
his troubles by singing in a rag
time voice such classics as "Bill
Bailey , won't you please come
"Open the door for me to go ,
Out In the rain , the sleet and thoaiiow , '
until he could endure it no longei
and would adjourn with the innk'
ings to the smoking room to comfort -

There were several ladies ii
the car and most of them turnci
with annoyance to look at tin
young mother and her wailinj
i- baby , much to her cmbarassment
Finally a girl , not handsom
y mind you , but just good looking

le moment to the mother in a lo\
Is tone , and then sitting down sh
took the bab > in her arms an
commenced singing in a low
II. crooning voice. The wails bi
j came faint and fainter , the baby
head bobbed uneasily on its liu
jn ber neck as it tried to look at il
comforter until it rested quietl
and its crying ceased. 1 looke
back again after a little whi !
ir- and the baby had fallen asleep i
the rocking arms of the youn
n- woman , the mother was drowsin
and the muffled hum of whee
over the snow was the on !
ur sound to be heard. "

embers of his cigars and the

Mr Shields , the conductor ,
took the girl's hand grip ; the
brakcman carried her umbrella
and she left the car. Everybody
looked at her as she walked up
the aisle ; those who sat on the
side of the station watched her
through the window , and while
nobody spoke everybody was
When the train reached Omaha
Mr. Shields touched the young
mother on the shoulder and said
"Omaha , " and lie said it very
quietly too. Every body helped
her and her sleep ! n : babj oil the

walked behind them to the stat

about it in disconnected remarks

Wellgi eus another of your
week's experiences" asked a list
ener. "I was party to another
incident that as equally unim
portant , " replied the story tell
; ' but as an isolated experience
it was worth while. "
I drove some sixty miles across
the Winnebago Indian reservation
during my absence from home.
It was bitterly cold and incx
pressibly lonely out on the bar
ren , wind swept prairies. I was
glad enough to put up with an
Indian family , when night fell.
There were only two rooms in
the houae and a little Indian boy
about four years of age and I oc
cupied one of them. I slept or
tried to sleep on a couch while
tlis head of the house curled up
in the bed , his mother was
afraid he would kick the covers
off if he slept on the couch.
I couldn't go to sleep The
strange surroundings , the almost
angible silence broken only by
he ghostly tapping of the snow
n the window drove sleep from
ne. About midnight I thought
\ little fresh air might help so I
loiselessly raised the window a
rtlle. I returned to my quarters
ind fell asleep. During the
light I awakened with the feei
ng that some one was in the
'oom. As mv eyes opened I saw
he oddest little figure by my
side that I have ever seen. The
vhites of his eyes shone out of
lis red face , and the straight
black hair hung down to the
shoulders of his "bear gown. "
"What's the matter , young
ster , " I required.
"Cold" lie grunted back.
I got up and closed the window
and the child returned to his bed.
He was restless and kept moving
about for a loti time.
' 'Arc you still cold , " I asked.
"Yes , " ' he returned in his gut-
lei al tone.
I laid quietl ) for a moment
arguing it out. Iliad seen 1115
children take the kitty to be <
with them I had a remember
ance of the time when a little
black and tan dog used to slee ]
with me. Surely a clean littl
little Indian boy , one of God'
little mites of humanity , was a
good as a dog. So I determine !
on a plan of action and will
some little embarassinent asked
"Want me to get in bed witl
you ? "
Off came the covers and thcr
was no mistaking the "yes. "
So I got into bed with him an
he snuggled up like a contente
little kitten and fell asleep on m
arm as my own little boys hav
so often done at home.
