BOY FINDS WANDERING PA Atlantic City Lad Wtlkf la on Tad and New Family. RECREANT FATHtR SKIPS OUT A6A1N 'Ba;s Bor to Keep Sim, Makes Eataceaicat to Meet Him. but Palls to Carry It Oat. Several months ago a man named Hall disappeared from his home at Atlantic, la.. leaving a wife and family, and for a while It was thought he bad committed suicide or wandered away during a lit of temporary Insanity. A son. of the family did not place much reliance in the suicide theory. nor did he become a very devout convert to the Insanity dodge. Being a philosophical sort of lad, he thought his sire may have gone away with another woman, and so he went quietly to work to prove up on a theory of his own. lie got onto a line that the truant parent might have come to Omaha. A few days ago the son came to Omaha and started on a little quiet Investigation of his own and through the means of a neatly worded letter he got his father to go to the Omaha postofflce. The son saw him, but the wily parent managed to elude the boy. The boy managed later to locate his father In the north part of the city. Thursday night the boy went out to the house where he suspected dad was in hid ing and looking through a window saw the "old gentleman" snugly ensconsed at the supper table, surrounded by a small family, of which none was the boy's brother, sister or mother. Then the boy quietly knocked at the door and was ad mitted. The father was -astounded, but managed to control his surprise sufficiently to lr.vlte his son to dine with them, which he did. The formalities of an Introduction to bis new relatives was omitted and after a very quiet meal, the father called hJs son out the door and Implored him to keep quiet about the matter and promised to meet him at the postofflce promptly at o'clock Friday morning. The boy was there on time, but up to noon the father had not appeared. The boy made another call at the new home of his parent, but was informed that he had left the city. Open evenings.

Mayor Dahlmaa Friday morning passed the general appropriation ordlnanoe, with a statement he would not approve two items for stationery for the treasury department, the amount being The point has been raised that the county should bear all ex penses for the consolidated treasury de partment, the city legal department holding that the city charter Is plain on that propo sition.

FARMERS WANT TO HAUL, "BUT CANNOT One Grain Man Says Several Thous and More Tars Conld Be Ised All Over the dtate. Three weeks ago the elevator people were Impatient because the Nebraska farmers wouldn't deliver corn. Now the elevators all over the state are full, and must stay full, because cars cannot be obtained to move the grain. At present the farmers want to haul corn and can't do It. "There are few elevators on our line that can hold another bushel," said a rep resentative of a large line elevator house. "The farmers got a late start In hauling, but after they started they brought the corn fast. Owing to the car shortage, the movement from Nebraska is later than I have ever seen it before. It will work a hardship on some dealers those who have corn nought In the country, but cannot deliver It at market points In time to nil their contracts. "Several thousand more cars could be used tn Nebraska at once to haul corn and merchandise, and still we couldn't get them too fast. The elevators would be filled up again as fast as they were emptied. The farmers have not been backward about selling their corn lately; we have bought lots of It and are buying It now, and they stand ready to deliver it at any time; in fact, they are anxious to deliver It while the weather is good, but we have to put them olt from day to day. "A large percentage of the com arriving In Omaha now Is grading No. X With another week of dry weather, I should say that 75 per cent of It will grade No. 3. All but a very small part of the crop will eventually grade No. 2." SAM GROSS GETS REWARD Fireman Who Leads In Burglar Capture Receives Gold Watch ' from Sonnenbersj, Tiie evidence so far brought out In the trial of Ed Elliott, charged with holding up and robbing the store of Joe Sonnenberg on Douglas street December 14 after bind ing the proprietor and his clerk, had added nothing new to the story of the sensational crime. The greater part of the time has been devoted to the examination and cross examination of Mr. Sonnenberg. He de tailed the story of the holdup and testified as to the value of the property taken and recovered from Elliott. The defense In the cross-examination nought to show that some of the Jewelry Mr. Sonnenberg loaned money on and bought might have been stolen property. The witness indignantly denied this and said he made a very care ful investigation of persons who pawned goods at his store. Detective Henry Heltfeld told of the arrest of Elliott under a bed In the Cam bridge hotel and said Elliott had admitted the crime to him and given him a descrip tion of his partner, who got away. Elliott told him he had all the jewelry, as his partner searched for the money drawer while he filled up with Jewelry. Fireman Gross, who led the pursuit for Elliott, will be one of the witnesses for the state. Mr. Sonnenberg has made a present of a fine gold watch and a valuable ring to Mr. Gross as a reward for his services. A Me meal for 2bi at the Karbaea rs taurant. BRACELETS Frenxer, 15th and Dodge.
