Mr. Luckett, counsel Tor the present cus todians of the child, read the "return of Mrs. Fleck. Reciting the history of tho case, Mrs. Fleck says that she first heard of the child sometime in 1395, when Mr. L. S. Emery came to the B,rue,n .home and asked her if she could take the care tem porarily, of a little child, whose' custody was involved In a case between Frost and Its mother. Arrangement was finally mnde for Its receipt at the hoine, and it came that evening. The child Is described as havlnglJeenlri a pitiable condition, spotted with sores and Insufficiently clad In a thin, tawdry garment. Mrs. Fleck says she bathed it and then clothed it in gooji garments. In a short time it presented a much dif ferent appearance. Mrs. Frost frequently came to see it, and In her conversation more than once referred to Frost, who, she said, claimed to bo Its father. Such a claim the mother characterized as being without foundation. Sho is also said to have always expressed a wish that Frost should never have its custody. The respondent further related that Mrs. Margaret Collins, Goalie's mother, died at the Garfield Hospital, December 13, and It then became a question as to -what was best for the child.
