Sad Story of Young
WUhelnilna Niemann, a oung lady

Mrs. Niemann, tbo mother of the
young lady, was at the police station
ytsterdny and the day before, making
sn attempt to get a warrant out for her
daughter. Shu explained that she bad
a lot of chlldicn anil that it was impos
sible for her to take care ot them all
by herself. She. felt t,hat hel- daughter
should l)C In her place In the home.
The warrant was finally Issued and
the girl taken from the Rescue Home of
tho Salvation Army nnd taken before
Judgo Wilcox asked the defendant
what she had to say for herself and
the girl replied that If tho court knew
sbo had left her homo sho would not
be asked to return. She was pressed
further and the defendant stated that
her father had treated her cruelly
Still another question brought forth n
stronger chaige of assault and battery-.
Judge Wilcox then told tbo oung
lady that she was perfectly correct and
that he would not ndvlso her to go back
to such a beast as her father. She
was In the hands of the good ladles
of the Rescue Homo of -the Salvation
Army and she would be foolish Indeed
If she left that place.
He then referred to tbo rescue of
Wllhclmlnn Niemann from one ot tho
Iwllel dens of vice ami said that pu
rents who would not rescue their
daughter from such n place but would
wait until a charitable Institution bad
done the work nnd then try to get her
back homo through the medium of tho
couit. deserved but scant recognition.
Tho life of WUhelnilna Niemann has
been a hard one. She alleges that
when sho was but thirteen years of ago
sho was assaulted by her father.
She lived a life of perfect tor
turo until something over a
year ago, sho left homo vountarlly
owing novcr to return to her home
again. She took up her abode with
some nntlvcs nnd then Inter on, went
to Iwllel. from which place she was
rescued hv the women of the Salvation
Army rescue home where she has been
staying ever slnco nnd from whence
she has no deslro to depart. She Is
treated well and has found a life of
