A telegram was received yesterday
from George A. Latimer at Spokane ,
announcing that Mrs. Latimer was
very dangerously ill and not expected
to recover , and asking that some of
the family como at once , Miss Mattlo
Davenport , sister of Mrs. Latimer , ac
cordingly left Norfolk on the early
train today In the hope of reaching
Spokane in time to see her sister.
She wont by way of St. Paul , Minn. ,
and over the Great Northern. The
ono surviving hope among Norfolk
relatives and friends Is that , In his
nerve strain and excitement , Mr. Lat
imer , who is naturally of a nervous
temperament , may have overestimat
ed , to some extent , the grave danger
of the situation , but from the tone of
the message it Is still feared that the
recovery of Mrs. Latimer Is a matter
of serious doubt. Among the relatives
are Mrs. Mary Davenport , mother ; F.
E. Davenport , John Davenport , George
Davenport , Carl Davenport , brothers j
Mrs. T. E. Odlorno , Mrs. B. C. Gentle ,

The Baby Found on the Doorstep of
the L. A. Miller Home Proved to
Have Been Left for Practical Joke
by Mother , Who Called to See Child.
The leaving of the baby on the door
stop of the homo of Mrs. L. A. Mlllor
Monday night proves to have boon
> nly a practical Joke.
Ijisl evening a friend of Mrs. Mil-
or'n called on her am ) asked for the
iiaby. At the HIIIIIU tlmo , she ussort-
. 'd that the Imbo was her own and
was only left on the doorstop to see
whether Mrs. Mlllor really wouldn't
iocp a child that was left that way.
Not long ago Mrs. Mlllor had made
the statement to this same frloud that
who never would keep a child loft enter
tor doorstop. Her absolute refusal to
Hoop the child , even for a short tlmo ,
proved her assertion and brought the
[ iractlcal Joke to a complete ondlng.
Mother Called to See It.
Mrs. Mlllor hud a number of callers
luring the day to see the now baby
and among them was the mother of
the child , although at that tlmo she
did not suspect the Interest which was
shown by her hi the story of the llml-
Ing of the child and In the baby boy ,
Both Mrs. Mlllor and the mother
are well sat tailed with the return of
the baby , and the efforts of Jo Stuart ,
the Tllden farmer , to llnd a homo for
the child are needless now.
How It All Happened.
The llttlo baby boy was left on the
doorstop of I ho Mlllor homo Monday
night and with him was a little- note
that said , "Take him and glvo him a
good homo and some cU.-tblug. Ho
will bo four months old February 21. "
The child came at about 0ilO : In tin1
evening , when someone knocked at
the door and then disappeared Into
the darkness. When Mrs. Mlllor wont
to the door , she found the little baby
boy and the note. There was no clue
to the child's Identity and Mrs. Miller
never oven dreamed that ho belonged
only a few doors away and that slu
had scon him often before.
"Ho Is good natured and doesn't
cry , " paid Mrs. Miller yesterday when
the real mother called to take a peek
at the babe that had been loft on the
"Aro you going to keep hlm"askec
the mother.
"Oh , no , " replied Mrs. Miller , "We
have two children of our own and we
couldn't think of keeping him. "
"Don't you like him ? " asked tlu ,
fond mother , trying hard not to rovoaf
her unusual Interest on the bluo-oyoc
"Oh , yes , wo like him , " said Mrs
Miller , to the eminent but not evident
satisfaction of the neighbor. "He's
as nice a baby as you'd want to see
Ho looks like ho had good blood li
his veins and I'm amazed to think thai
ho over could have belonged to a per
son of the kind that drops the babies
on doorsteps. "
"Well , what are you going to d (
with him ? " asked the anxious prac
tical Joker.
"Oh , wo don't Just know , " said Mrs
Miller , meditatively. "Wo have prom
ised to keep the child a day or two
until Jo Stuart of Tllden can find a
homo for him , on a farm near Tllden
but wo positively will not have him
around past the end of the week. "
"Well , are you going to buy the
slnMiltii' thnt Mm nntn nskR for ? "
"No , Indeed I'm not. If they wanted
their baby so well dressed , why didn't
they dress him up before they droppei
him around on peoples' doorstops ? "
Then the mother , delighted with her
visit , reached down with her longlnt
fingers , puckered up the cheeks of the
llttlo homeless babe , and turned to
ward homo.
Came Back to Claim Him.
Later In the evening the mother re
turned. She couldn't got along with
out her baby any longer.
"I've come for that baby , " she said
"I guess I'll take It homo with me
You see , it is my very own , any way.1
Mrs. Miller was dazed at the an
nouncement. Explanations followed
amid roars of laughter which the
baby boy did not appreciate. Ho
was getting sleepy and wanted to go
home. And this morning ho woke up
in his own little trundle bed , a few
doors away.
Ho had had an adventure that does
not come in the lives of all men nor
babies either and , besides , ho had
been the means of clearly demonstrat
Ing that Mrs. Miller meant what she
said when she declared that she posl
lively would not keep a foundling , i
