MISSING FROM HOME.
Josle Blomgren Mysteriously
A strange case enveloped in mystery
is at present the principal subject of
discussion in the city.
A young lady 17 years old. a
daughter of Rev. Blomgren, has ap
parently been abducted, if we aie to
rely on the statements which she has
sent to her parents, since her disap
pearance from home. From this story
it seems that she went to the depot
early last Saturday morning with
some friends who were to leave by the
morning train for Minneapolis. Af
ter they had left, and before she had
time to leave the depot, she was ac
costed by a man who told her that he
wished her to accompany him to St.
Cloud on the next tram, and who
threatened to shoot her if she did not
obey. She then boarded the train
with him, and after they had taken a
seat. Lhe man seemed to fall asleep,
whereupon she requested one of the
train men to give her apiece of paper.
This was done, and then she wrote a
letter to her patents, and asked the
trainman to bring it back.
This fs her story. Since then how
ever, parties have stated that she was
alone, that she lemamed in Paynes
until the afternoon of the same
day, and boarded the train for St.
Cloud, but that she was not in com
pany with anyone. No one has seen
any trace of the strange individual
mentioned in her letter, and has no
motive can be assigned for her dis
appearance, it is as jet an uncertain
ty whether she was abducted, eloped,
or perhaps contrived this plan for a
lunawaj. Atalle\em her parents
are verj much afflicted by it, and en
tnely incapable of accounting tor their
daughter's strange conduct.
The girl's father started in search
of her yesterday afternoon, but we
have not learned what success at
tended his efforts so far.
