Webster was remanded to jail to await sentence. Webster faced the court stoically with the same blank sture he ha? displayed during the trial, when the Jury filed back into the courtroom.

Hammonton, N. J.. Oct. 30.?Mrs. Stella Da n se y. the heart-broken mother of the little boy who myste riously disappeared from his home on the morning of October S, is one of the bravest little women ? ever saw. She ts young, fair, slender, of me dium height. Her eyes are saddened and tired, but still brave and still looking for her little poMen-haired Billy. She fs stunned, yet she waits and j hone:*, and will do so until the last j vestine of hope is ?one. believing with that wonderful intuition of; mother-love, that her little baby Is I somewhere on Ihe continent. She prays many times a day for! his safety and well-being and speedy [ return to her arms. She is just keepinp up by sheer strength of will power, for she never ? sleeps. She does not remove her clothing ? at night, lest she rest too well, for j even at night she waits for him, night after Bight keeps vigil, hoping and praying. When 1 spoke words of comfort and encouragement, she smiled, a wan. sad little smile wrung from the depths of her broken heart. > Billy's toys are scattered in the little parlor just as he left them, when clad in a faded little nluo suit, black shoes and stockings, brown sweater and his daddy's base ball cap. he went to play out-of doors and never came back. Tb?; little home had just been set tled when Billy disappeared. The Danseys had only lived there a month. | What a happy little home It was when Billy laughed and played about; but what a sad and desolate little home now! Mr. Daneey. too, is firm in the belief that Billy haa been kidnapped, that he is held alive somewhere, and he reassures his wife and helps keep her courage up by telling her that their baby is being well treated. The thought of harm to her baby would surely break the brave, sweet spirit of ? thai poor, heart-broken, crushed little mother, who still hopes and can only sit and wait.
