Mrs. Rose Ponnell was sitting with two
of her children. Clifford and Goldle, In
their home, 2213 Dodge street, Friday
evening when they heard an odd sound
on the front porch.
"Oucrs it's Just the cat." said Clifford.
But it didn't sound like the cat. So
Mrs. Ponnell went to Investigate and
found a baby! Yea, sir, a regular human
baby ! . ' j
Ah, the glorious mystery of a baby's
effect on woman's heart!
How Mrs. Donnell fluttered about! How
soma women roomer In the house arrived
there as' If by maglo ' when they heard
the bahy'fl voice!"
How they fondled it! How they fed It
with milk from a spoon! How they car
ried it into a darkened room and sang
lullabys to Itl How they smoothed its
clothes and kissed Its dimpled cheeks
and chubby hands! ,
Mrs. Donnell finally called up the au-
thorltles and soon cams 'Detectives Dunn f
They looked upon the baby with mas
culine calmness. They poked stubby
flngerr into baby's velvety cheeks. They j
spoke In baby language thus: "Da-da,"
Dunn looked at the pretty little waif
and sagely remarked:
" 'Bout months old."
But he didn't go away with his pre- '
tense of wisdom about babies, for Mrs.
Donnell exhibited a note found pinned
on the bundle. It read:
Born February 19, 1918. I can't keep
her. Please give baby a home."
It was the farewell note of a sorrowing
mother making the greatest sacrifice that
poverty can force a mother to make.
The child was fully dressed and had a
cotton flannel nightgown and a thin serge '
coat wrapped around it.
And, so, after the women had kissed
It goodbye a dosen times It was bundled
up and entrusted to the two big men,
who took it to the Child Saving Institute.
One of its little hands took firm hold on
Dunn's forefinger as he carried it away.
"Oh, I'd have loved to keep it," said
Mrs. Donnell later. "If I'd only had some
way to take care of It. Tt was such a dear
little thing. I've had six phone calls this
morning from women who wanted to
