Miss Fleming , instead of Mr. Hyde , attained the honor of making the high est grades in the civil service exami nation hero some time ago.

Mr. Hyde was first among the men who took the tests , but was Incorrectly stated yesterday to be first among the nine. The cor rection is made at the instance of the committee In charge of the civil ser vice work. Miss Fleming IB a teacher In the Norfolk schools and has not yet heard as to the position that will bo offered to her. 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 , Miss Mattlo Davenport , sisters ; also W. C. Davenport of Sioux City , a brother. MOTHER OF "FOUNDLING" WAS NEIGHBOR OF MILLERS. DID IT TO TEST MRS. MILLER 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 , himself. 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 doorstop. "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 baby. "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 ono over happened to bo left on lie doorstep.
