The child was only adopted by Streit

that the County Couit had no right to
grant adoption paper, in tbe
child was a subject of the
German hmpire. The child
is tbe daughter of a couple who nut
death together a year ago. Her
lather shot her mother and then him
self. Some hundreds of replications to
adopt me little one were made to tbe
County Court, a belief existing among
many people ttut the child, through
tbe circumstance of her parents death,
had become a "mascot." Mr. Htreit,
a blacksmith, was tbe succet sful ut.-

cow seeks to possess the child the at
torney in the case refuses to cay. Ic
is understood that difference of re
