Mrs Sl.dt-n called on Mr. Berry and
asktd If Dorothy was there.
"Why, no," said Mrs. lteiry. "I was just

As neither knew anything of the children

Then nil three started in quest of the
mix?mg children. They inquired In every
house in the block, but no trace of the chil
dren was jo he toun-l. AH sorts of horrible
thoughts Jtaj-hed ihiough the minds of the
inotners. They wv vitions of their babes

and It was not Ions before the nhole iieigh-l-orhood
was advised of the disappara:ice

The wlrtu were kept hot in telephoning
all the police stations to look out for tho
lo.-t children. Everybody available was nt
out in every direction to search the town.
Mi"s Beatrice j-helton. the 10-y.ar-idd Mi

They weie itra?gled out like ducks In a

clothes were bedraggled with mud and
they vi ere barelj ablo lo put one foot be

But the lost had !een found, and thn
mothers, whoso hearts had h-en sorely
tried. forgot all about their promises of
punishment and preyed them again and
ag-un to their hearts.
The greeting over, explanations were In
order. Lit Ho Dorathy told the siory of the
duvV outing. She said:
"Sterling asked u.s If we didn't want to go
down to the rivr and tee the s-tear.-.boats
that were burned. We said we did, and we
nil walked down to the river. We went
down Olive blrett; saw whole lots of big
stores and a great many pretty things Pi
the windows. We went In tome stores, but
they made Uo go out.
"When wo got dowi to the river we siiv

We went on one boat, but some man mile,
us get off. Then we waded round in the
water for a long time. It was very easy
going down to the river, lit. oh! we got
so tired coming back. I thought I never
would get through walking-"
When akd if silo wasn't afraid to go so
far little Dorothy said: "No. indeed. I
ain't afraid of anything but cows, and we

Indignation in JJeilin Over the
American Policy in China.
SPECIAL BY CABLE.
Berlin, Sept. 21.-(Copyright, tfj0, b W K.
Hearst.) Great indignation prevails, herein
olllcial and political circles against 1'rasl
di nt McKinley. He Is charged, not merely
in convirsatlon, but likewise In print, with
suixinlinating not merely the interests of
America In China but those of the entire
civilized world to selfish cgiisiderations in
regard to his re-election.
He Is even accused of having manipulated
the dispatches of Minister Conger and of
Special Commissioner Ilockhill and of dis
torting the sense of the messages with this
object in view.
It is ass. rted here that both Mr. RockhlU
and Minister Conger are known to have
stated explicitly in their dlsputchos that the
Empress Dowager and the Imperial Gov
ernment ordered the outrages on the for
ilgrtrs and were wholly responsible for
them, yet that President McKinley, whose
role object is to get American troops out of
China lefore the election comes on in the
Unlteel States, refuses to accept these as
sertions of his duly accredited agents and
prefers to enter Into diplomatic relations
with tho real authors of the massacres rath
er than face In the eves of the American
electorate the responsibility for the course
upon which he embarked the United States
Tre Gt rman view Is that the policy of tho
United States will increase the difficulties
of the allle-s in ohtJlnirg redress for the
outrages and a .solution of the present
