BERRY'S FniE.D PLAYS HIM FALSE
Robs Him of Money Intended for a
Raymond Berry, a young man from
Mitchell, Neb., discovered yesterday morn- '
lug on awakening at the Paxton hotel on j
South Main street, that he had been made i
a victim of misplaced confidence. Berry j
was on his way to spend the Christmas
holidays with relatives In Lansing, Mich., '
but the prospects now are that he will I
have to abandon the proposed visit and eat
his Christmas turkey at home. I
At Alliance, Berry struck up an acquaint- !
ance with an elderly man, named I'arker, j
and accompanied him to Council Bluffs.
I'arker was broke and at Berry's invita- i
tlon spent Friday night at the South Main j
street hostelry with him. Parker awoke I
first and when Berry arose he discovered I
that his elderly friend had left the hotel, j
At the some time Berry realised that his i
gold watch and chain and $4- In cash were I
missing. He couplvs the disappearance of
his money and watch with the sudden de
parture of his elderly chance acquaintance.
I'arker evidently Intended taking Berry's
overcoat also, but for some reason left it
In the hotel lobby after taking It from
the young man's room.
Berry at once, on discovering his loss,
notified the police and then crossed the
liver to see If he could locate Parker .
