Pine Bluff, July 24.—One of the
principal topics of conversation at
Pine Bluff Thursday was the find of
the infant girl on the Cotton Belt
passenger train which arrived from
the south last night. W. G. Helms,
to whom the child was given for
safekeeping, today announced that
he had consulted a lawyer and would
keep the child and rear her. This
afternoon, however, Mr. and Mrs.
Delmar Charlan announced their pur
pose ot adopting the child and secured
the papers necessary in such cases.
Recognizing that the child would be
given an excellent home and the best
attention possible, Mr. Helms readily
consented to give her up, and now
the little one is at the Charlan home,
on West Second avenue.
The same train that had as a pas
senger an unknown baby, furnished a
calf transportation to Pine Bluff last
night. When the train pulled in there
Special Officer Frank Lockridge saw
the animal guiltily reposing on the
cow catcher. Though picked up by
the train when going at a fast rate of
speed, the calf with the exception of
sustaining a broken leg, was not in
jured. The engineer had no knowl
edge of the calf, and it is not known
where it was picked up.
