I Escape Kearney.
Kermit Gasaway, 8, who dropped
into town Thursday long enough to
steal another horse, start for the
races and get arrested, escaped to
his uncle's farm this morning before
the juvenile authorities got hold of
him. His father, Charles Gasaway,
2509 South Twentieth avenue, told
the police the hoy had just come in
frcm his uncle's farm at Valley for
a visit and he would send him right
back. f
An order to go to Kearney In
dustrial school, to remain till he is 21
is hanging over Kermit,' who seems
unable to curb his propensities tor
horse stealing. This order was placed
over him in juuvenile court, April 30.
Just Can't Help It.
Although he is of such tender
years, 'tis said he has stolen more
horses than anyone else' in Omaha.
It seems he just can't helo it.
He had, stolen four horses before
the Kearney order was made. One
of these he. stole while he was at
Riverview Detention home for steal
in? another." ' '
. Three days after the Kearney
order, above mentioned, Kermit was
back in juvenile court for sealing an
other horse. . 1 '
Pleas Save Him.
His tender years and his parent's
picas saved him from incarceration
at the industrial school, where .there
are no horses. ' The parents said
they wduld send him forthwith to
his uncle's farm, at Valley. On that
condition Judge Sears let him go.
Since then Kermit has been on the
farm where he has two horses to
take care of. and a ponji of his own
to ride.
But it seems stolen horses are the
sweetest to Kermit. He came back
to Omaha he rode in, and Thursday
he found a horse and wagon stand
ing at Thirteenth and Castelar streets.
He unhitched the animal, got upon
its back and started for Ak-Sar-Ben
field. '
Going to Races.
As he galloped . past Nineteenth
and Leavenworth streets Thursday
afternoon Detectives English and
Ryan saw him. They stopped him.
"Where are you going with the nag,
kid?" they inquired.
"Going to the racei," said the boy,
"and I got to hurry."
He was. putting spur to his steed
again when he was turthcr inter
rupted. "What's your name?" demanded
the detective.
"Kermit Gasaway."
Back to Farm.
"You come with us," said the of
ficers of the law. "We know all
about ypu. Where'd you steal this
nag?" - .
And. with Kermit astride the ani
mal, the detectives leading" it, they
proceeded to the police station.
Kermit's father was soon on the
job and early yesterday morning he
took him back to the farm.
