Flndltui $50 In Dills on Norfolk Av
enue Last Saturday , John Werner
Overcame Temptation to Keep it
and Drought It to T. M. Hull Today.
John Werner , a Commit farmer who
lives near llosklus , thirteen miles fiom
'orfolk , Is an honest man.
hast Saturday Mr. Werner was in
Norfolk. Walking along Norfolk uv-
line , near Fifth street , his eye was
nddonly pinned to a llttlo green roll
f currency that lay doubled up near
ho sidewalk. Picking up the roll ,
Ir. Werner found that ho bad In bis
anils $50two $ 0 bills and two ? 5
tills. Today ho returned that money
o the man who lost It. T. M. Hull of
bia city.
Overcame His Temptations.
The story of the temptation to keep
be money that lie bad found , as told
n a straight , clour , honest way by Mr.
Werner today , could but command ad
"WJien 1 found the money , " ho said ,
'tlmro was a strong temptation to
loop It. 1 luivo Just recently lost some
logs by cholera and for a time I
bought maybe this money had been
sent to me to mnko up for my bad
lick. 1 am a poor man , and $50 In
ash picked up from the street looked
t\\ fully good.
Mill 1 tool ; tne money Homo and
old my wile about It and then I went
nlo prayer ever the matter and made
ip my mind to Hnd the owner. And
; o today 1 drove Into Norfolk , thlr-
eon miles , to bunt out the man who
mil lost the bills. 1 wanted it to go
: o the right ono. 1 Know how I would
fool If 1 lost the money.
First Looked at News Want Ads.
"And when I came to town , the
llrst thing 1 did was to bunt up The
N'ews nnd go through the want col
umns. And 1 found the ad. that said
money had boon lost. Then I came
10 the olllce hero to llml who that man
was , and a llttlo later 1 located him. "
Mr. Hull gave Werner a reward of
$5 for the llml. Mr. Werner also took
11 receipt In order to show that ho had
delivered the money ever to Its right
ful owner.
"And now 1 fool , belter , " said the
man from Hosklns , after the matter
was closed. "It weighed on my mind
so much Hint I couldn't wait until to
morrow even , so I hitched up and
drove In today. And 1 shall mnko the
drive of thirteen tulles back homo this
afternoon with a clear conscience.
The Ad. That Did It ,
Fallowing is the want ad. that re
stored the $50 to Mr. Hull :
"LOST. A sum.of . money. Finder
will bo liberally rewarded. For fur
ther Information Inquire of Dally
News. "
The ad. ran three days.

The First That Ida Irish Knew of Her
Father's Death at Nellgh Was When
Her Letter to Him Came Back , "De
ceased" Stamped in the Corner.
Ida Irlsb-Macomber , the Insane wo
man from Tlldcn who attracted such
wide attention last spring by advertis

many proposals for marriage , is now
In the Norfolk insane hospital , having

the cottages were opened.
Just the day before the old man died
at Nellgh. Miss Irish wrote a letter to
him at that place. The letter was en
closed In an envelope with the return
card of the Norfolk Insane hospital In
the corner. It went to Nellgh on the
night of her father's death and when
it reached that place his eyes had
closed to this world's objects and bo
never knew what the epistle said.
The next morning the letter , un
opened and bearing across the cornet
In a cold , rubber-stamp line the word
"Deceased , " came back to toll Idn
Irish that her father was dead. Thlf
was the llrst news she had had that
