After Baby Farrtv In a raid made on
a house at the corner of Second and
Myrtle streets the police secured the
arrest of Eva Bex and Frank B&Iiel,
both of whom were tried Saturday on a
charge of vagrancy. The man was
given a sentence of 10 days In the
county jail to enable the officers to
know where he was until they Investi
gated certain conditions of the case,
which developed through a conversa
tion the woman had with Matron Hill
while she was at the house of deten
tion. In the talk with Mrs. Hill the
woman admitted that she had a 5-
months-old baby at her home which
was not hers and which had been giv
en to her by parties in this city. She
repeated parte of the conversation dur
ing the trial and admitted she was not
getting paid for the care of the child.
She Informed the police magistrate she
had the child at another home and was
paring for its keep. In the testimony
which she gave at the trial 6he in
formed the police magistrate the per
son who gave her the baby made her
promise to never tell where he had
come from and under no circumstances
to give any names. She stuck to this
promise until the matron had a talk
with her, when she implicated one of
the physicians who formerly did busi
ness in this city.

a shrill falsetto chuckle.
"Her mistress writes," went on
Phillip, glancing at the letter again:
'Lucy Is turning pale since your visit
to Forest Lakes, and I think she is
pining away for Sam. She asked yes
terday when he was coming buck.
When is he?'"
Sam bent over the suit case and
shipped his legs in a paroxysm of de
light. "Ah suttenly is a lady kiUeh,"
Phillip, laughing, returned to his of
fice and, tearing the letter once across,
dropped it into the westebasket with
a gesture of almost contempt; then he
opened the second letter, one addressed
in a girl s hand, but a firm one. This,
too. be read with a frown, but it was
one of surprise. A ring of the tele
phone interrupted his musing.
"Mr. Rensselaer?" he repeated Into

There came a knock at the door, and
he opened it to let youug Rensselaer

hotel elevator shaft now, and they

Phillip speculated, "and If tt does

Rensselaer laughed. "Can you Imag

fight with about fifty of those chaps?"
"I don't 6ee tbe fun in it." objected
Phillip. "I saw a crowd of newsboys
In Chicago attack a very brawny man
once, and they nearly killed him."
"I've known cowmen-to fight over a
milder discussion than this," laughed
Rensselaer. "I guess we'd better drop

fight between Mutton; Harris and
Freckles Lane over thejproper way to

That started a line of reminiscences
which lasted until they searched out
the home of Ben White.
The Whites were strictly sn Install
ment family. They lived in an install
ment house, wore Installment clothing,
sat upon installment furniture and
read Installment books. As Kelvin and
Rensselaer turned in at the gate a
scowling collector was turning away
from the door, in which stood a plump,

"I wondered bow you found ms so
readily," he commented, smiling.
"It's because I'm so lonesome," she
replied. "We don't make friends here
as we did in Tennessee, so I am
for ever end ever reading the hotel
arrivals, hoping that among the names
I'll find somebody we used to know."
She paused a moment and laughed at
herself. "But I never found one un

New Steel Mill Wage Scale. C. F.
Burgess of Chicago, general superin
tendent of the Republic Iron & Steel
company, "was here last week and
signed a wage agreement with mem
bers of the Amalgamated Association
of Steel, Iron and Tin Workers. Life
of the agreement Is one year. No ds-
pute of any kind arose and the matters
were settled in a very peaceful man
ner. The scale remains practically
unchanged. The Sylvan mills were
closed down, for repairs and Inventory,
They will resume operations July 10,
when the new scale of wages will go
into effect. Whether the entire fores
will start work is a matter to be de
termined at a later date. This hinges
entirely on the number of orders that
are received before that date.

Rev. Bergstrom Accepts Call. Rjv.
A. F. Bergstrom of South Chicago, has
accepted a calf to the pastorate of the
First Swedish Lutheran church of M-
Une. Rev. Mr. Bergstrom last week sig
nified hia intention of accepting tno
call to the city by resigning from his
South Chicago charge, but the church
council refused to iaccept his resigna
tion. A meeting of the entire con
gregation was called for Friday night,
when an effort was made to induce Mr.
Bergstrom to remain, but without re
sult. The local congregation is for
tunate in securing a man of Mr. Berg
strom's calibre. During his pastoraio
in South Chicago he has .built up the
Tabor church from a mere mission
congregation to a strong organization,
havlne a total membership of 477 and
with property valued at $28,000. He is

Phillip, said Rensselaer.
"This young lady couldn't say any
other sort of thing about me If sbe is

placing his hand affectionately upon
her shoulder. "She was one of my
stanchest adherents in those days, long
before she was a young lady. How

which opened directly from the stoop.

with music, and though that corner
