ONE HOME BROKEN UP BECAUSE
LITTLE MARY IS MISSING
Mrs. Mary Rayna, 718 West Harri
son street, returned from work last
night to find the door of her flat
forced open and her little daughter
Mary, 3, missing. Neighbors ex-plained-that
the child had been taken
away by the Humane Society.
The father of little Mary finds a
strong attraction at the corner, sa-
loon, and 'Mary's mother has been
fighting poverty by scrubbing floors
in downtown office buildings.
Mary has been taking care of her
self, shut up in the little three-room
flat, with a few crusts of bread and a
saucer of milk on the floor to allay .
any pangs of hunger.
But Mary didn't like to be locked
in the flat. She pressed her face to
the window in the kitchen and looked
out over the back yard, where there
is another house almost pushed up
against the flat in which Mary lived,
and she begged the woman who Uvea
in the rear house to "pleas& let me
out," until Mrs. Williams summoned
Charles P. Brayne, an officer of the
Illinois Humane Society. Brayne
broke open the door of Mrs. Rayna's -flat
and carried the child away.
The saddest part of the story is
that Mary's mother had bought a few
toys for the child yesterday, to cele
brate its third birthday today, and it .
was of this that she spoke most while
she cried over the loss1 of little Mary.
Today the flat Is deserted. There .
is no baby face pressed to the kitchen
window. Mrs. Rayna is down in the
Juvenile Court begging that her little
girl may be restored -to her for Mary
is the only thing that Mary Rayna
has to make her happy
