Two Little Girls From Knox
County Made To lleg
On The Streets Of Thirty
Towns In State Of Ohio
By Woman Who Promised To
Give Them A Home
The Children Were Brought
Back To Mi, Vernon
By Juvenile Officer Purcell
On Monday Night
Juvenile Officer Patrick Purcell re
turned from New Philadelphia, O.,
Monday night, bringing with him
Mabel und Helen Johnson, aged 12
and G years. Both young girls are resi
dents of Knox county and are tho
daughters of Mrs. James Johnson,
whoso husband was killed about one
Mrs. Johnson Is tho mother of nlno
children and since tho death of her
husband has been unable to provide
for all her children. Some months
ago a woman from Loudonvillo visit
ed Mt. Vernon and agreed to take the
two children, Mabel and Helen, to
her home and there care for them In
a proper manner.
It was recently discovered, how
ever, that Instead of sending the
children to school and giving them
aj. home, the woman compelled tho
children to beg on tho streets and it
has been found ithat tho children
were In no less than 30 towns in var
ious sections cf Ohio, begging.
The children told Juvenile Officer
Purcell that they took in from $5
to $15 porf day begging on the streets
and the money was all turned over
t o the woman, who agreed to give
ihem a home. According to the state
ment qf the children, if they did not
havo a good day begging then tho
woman would beat them with a
paddle. The oldest child exhibited
marks all over her body to prove her
statement. The oldest child was
dressed In a long dress to make peo
ple believe that aho was much older
than she really was.
A short time ago the two children
appeared on the streets of New Phil
adelphia and went from store to
Htoro and from residence to resldonce
begglug from the people. Finally Pro
bate Judgo Barnhlll of that county
ordered tho two children brought in
to juvenilo court. Tho two children
were questioned by tho probate judge
nnd lo him they told their story, how
they left Knox county, how they were
compolled to bog and turn the money
over to tho woman, and how they
were beaten If they refused to beg.
Judgo Barnhlll at onco notified tin
juvenile 'court of Knox county and
on Sunday, Juvenile Officer Patrick
Purcell left for New Philadelphia and
arrived home with tho two girls on
The woman who took the children
from Mt. Vernon, and who promised
to give them a horns and the proper
care and attention, is now located in
Canal Dover, and It is quite likely
that some action will be brought
against her at an early date.
Upon reaching Mt. Vernon, Mon
day night tho two girls were glran
to tholr mother, but on account or
her destitute circumstances she will
be unable to care for the children
and the authorities will endeavor to
find a homo for tho two little girls

Lets Go At A Coshocton
And Two Men Have A Very
Itoy Moore, bottler, and William
Miller, prominent transfer man, were
slightly injured and had a hair-raising
escapo from death, and the plant
of tho Centennial Bottling Works,
near Fifth and Main streets was
wrecked nt 11 o'clock Monday morn
ing when a CO-pound gas tank contain
ing a high pressure of carbonic acid
gas exploded In the bottling shop.
The loss to tho plant Is estimated
by Marlon Patterson, part owner, at
about $300, covered by insurance.
That Mooro and Miller escaped
with their lives seems miraculous.
Both stood not three feet away from
tho big iron cylinder when It explod
ed breaking every window in the
plant out of the frame, tearing a hol&
through the roof and jarring the en
tiro section of town. The roar of tho
explosion was heard in almost ovory
section of town.
Moore was standing at tho bottling
machine with his back to the big
iron cylinder used for containing tho
gas used In pop and soon water. Ho
was about three faot away lrom tho
tank. William Miller proprietor of the
Buckeye Transfer & Feed Stable in
the Schalch alley stepped into the
workshop to talk to Moore. Ho was
standing on the opposite side of the
bottling machine from Moore.
Without any warning and with a
loud roar the big gas tank which
stood against the wall of the building
lot go. Glass, broken lumber and
pieces of Iron fell in a shower nround
the men. Particles of the glass and
splinters of the lumber struck the
two men on the face and hands in
flicting slight cuts but not seriously
The gas tank which measures
about five feet long with a diameter
of about eight Inches was blown Into
many pieces. One of tha smaller
pieces cut through a halt Inch board
with which the room is celled and
went out through tho roof. The larg
er piece of tho tank struck the wall
and glanced up through the celling
and out the roof. About one-fourth
of the roof was torn away. The tank
was found later on the roof of I-tel-man's
plumbing shop building tvo
hundred yards away.
