STRANGE ANIMAL SEEN IN

strange animal that is credited with
resembling liig Ben. the sea lion that
has been inhabitatmg, Lake Michigan

during the winter as being seen in the
Mississippi river at Muscatine.
The animal seen at Sterling was
watched by hundreds of people, ac-
eor:ling to the papers of that city, and
it is said its appearance and size were
clearly distinguished. It played about
the river near the bridge all day yes
terdaj', frequently appearing at the
surface and exposing a large part of
its body. In appearance it is descril)-
ed as being half fish and half animal
with a head resembling that of a
sheep. The color was dark and the
skin or fr glossy.

PLANNING A KINDERGARTEN
AT THE UNION MISSION
Those in charge of the Union Mis-
sion. the home for dependent and out
cast young, occupying the Silvis resi
dence on Aiken street in South Bock
Island, are taking up a movement to
secure the advantages of a kinder
garten in connection with the institu
tion. While the mission is very well
fitted so far as it goes, and the 31
children now being cared for there
are made comfortable in every way,
but. it has become clear to those who
have studied the situation that it is
possible to make improvements in
their surroundings that will assist in
the mental ami physical development
of the inmates and thus more thor
oughly accomplish the purpose for
which the institution is maintained.
The great problem is not so much
to keep the children '-In comfort, as

the mind is best employed through the

devised to furnish motive and means
for such activities. It is too often the
ease under present conditions that the
children grow listless and inborn ten

kindergarten teacher to take charge
of those who are too young to at

have the support of the public in their
endeavor to improve the facilities for
caring for the unfortunate young
whom they furnish a home.

Confesses the Theft Pathetic Meet
Ins With Little Sister
Xouis Cohn, aged 14 years, whose
penchant for stealing has gotten him
in trouble on numerous occasions, is
again locked up at the city jail.
Be was arrested this morning by
Ollieer Dennis McCarthy. The boy
confessed to the theft of stonecutter's
tools of the value of $15 from M. Tor-
pey. 213 Twentieth street, disposing
of them at local second hand estab
Louis only recently was tip for
stealing from L. B. McKown, the
Fourteenth street dealer. Mr. Mc-
Kown was disposed to be lenient with
the boy, and on his promise to con
duct himself properly in future the
charge was dismissed, Mr. McKown
paying the costs.
Louis did not appear to be much
concerned over his plight, maintaining
an air of coolness and indifference.
until he had a visit from his. young
sister, Minnie, at the station this
morning, when he burst into tears.
She cried, too.
Parents Thoaffht Him Good ltoy.
"Louie never told ns that he had
been stealing." she told the sergeant.
We had supposed that he was a good
boy now, because he said that he had
learned a good lesson when he was
arrested before. How long are yon
going to keep locked up?" and Minnie
began to weep. So did Louis. She
gave her brother a sympathetic
glance. He was a picture of despair.
Ihen, holding her handkerchief to
her eyes to catch the tears, she hur
ried away from the police to her
home on Seventeenth street to te.ll
her pnrents where she found Louis,
the officer informing her that the boy
would have to stand trial and that he
would probably be held under bond
to the grand jury.
She thought he might be let off with
a fine, but when the grand jury was
mentioned she seemed to abandon
hope of securing her brother's re
lease. AT THE HOTELS
