Avenuo A, aaa badly mlatreated by a sup
posed tramp last evening. The brute waa J
evidently frightened from accomplishing his
and escaped Into the
woods at Mynater springs.
Anna Bailsman and Mabel Humbert, the
6-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mr. S. W.
Humbert, who live acroaa the street from
the Saltiman family, were swinging In the
yard at the Humbert home when ap
proached by the fellow. , He told the chil
dren that he had three little boys and a
girl about their age and eald that If they
would come with him to his house he would
give 'them a nice pony and a dollar for
candy. The promise of a pony proved too
tempting and the children went with the
fellow, who started north on Eleventh
street along the Northwestern tracks with
When they had gone some distance the
Humbert child became frightened and com
menced to cry and told her companion she
wanted to go back to her mama. The fel
low offered her SS cents to go along with
him and the Baltaman girl, but the little
one refused and the fellow then told her
to go home, and she started back.
According to the etory told by little Anna
Baltaman, the man took. her about a. mile
down the road and Into a cornfield. The
child became frightened before they reached
the cornfield and began to cry, when' the
fellow placed his hand over her mouth and
threatened to beat her' If she made Any
outcry. The little girl said the fellow had
a revolver which he Showed her and this
so frightened her aha did not' dare to cry
out. The brute had removed part of the
child's underclothing, but -seetng several
people coming ddwn'tfie road and suspect
ing ,that the alarm had been given, desisted
from further attacking his Intended victim.
Giving the child thro pennies, 'he assisted
In replacing her clothing and then started
on the run for the timber In the direction
6f Mynster springs. -
The brute made his escape none too soon
as the child's mother with several of the
helghbora and Detective George Wilson
reached the corn field Jost aa the little
girl made her way onto the road. The
child waa so terribly frightened that it
was not until - she, had been - taken home
that she Waa able to give any account of
what had happened.. ...
Boy filves Alarm.'.
The first alarm was given by Sidney
Chernlss, a small lad and acquaintance of
the two children. He had seen the tramp
leading them down .the foal- by the hand
and despite his youth surmised that some
thing waa wrong. ' The boy happened to
see Detective Wfleon 'near, the railroad
ttacks and In his childish " wav ' told the
officer about the two' tittle fclris being led
away ' by
home, which Is within -n short dst-in- '
the railroad tracks. , It waa while talking
to Mra. Sultzman that tn lime iu....j...
girl came back and told of Anna going
away with the -matt, r
The fellow, who la supposed to be a
tramp, waa described by., the Saltiman
girl as .being thickset wltrt about a week
growth of bead, wearing a blue flannel
shirt and without a coat or' vest. Aa far as
ahe could tell he waa -about S yeara of
age. - 1
The police at once ent word to Crea-
cent City and other towna along the North
western and to neighboring farmers with
the hope of heading the .brute off. Owing
to the darkness It waa thought there
would be little chance of capturing the
fellow last night If he kept, to tbe timber.
The attack on the child arouaed considera
ble excitement In the neighborhood and
among the railroad men and there waa a
good deal of talk of stringing the brute
up if tie had been captured. ,

of the state have nominated their eenatota

ber have left thla matter for a subsequent
county convention to be held after the

patters have the advantage, for the reason
that the terma of but twenty-ono of the
