LOS ANGELES LAD, LOST ALL
NIGHT, FOUND BY MILKMAN
WHO 'BURST OPEN HIS
PRISON.
Los Angeles. Sept. 15. From 5
o'clock in the afternoon until 3 o'clock
the next morning nine-year-old Lloyd
Carney, son of W. 8. Carney, 2104
South Los Angeles street lay
cramped and Imprisoned in a large
sheet Iron bread box in front of a
grocery store at the corner of Twen-tv-first
and Main streets. Meanwhile
an almost crazed father searched
every Juvenile haunt known to him.
nd half a dozen policemen turned
the neighborhood toy-turvy In their
effort to find the missing boy.
It was not the victim's fault that
he was not found sooner than he was.
He yelled and cried and whistled and
screeched at the top of his voice, and
sobbed sobs that fairly reverberated
within the receptacle where he was
Incarcerated, but all to no avail.
After the searching party, near day
break, had come to the' conclusion
that he had vanished from the vicin
ity, a milkman.' Imagining that he
beard a dog scratching within the
bread box. w hich had been . placed
uon the sidewalk before th store,
thought he would do a hpmane act
rnd release the creature. Great was
his surprise oil prying open t!ie pad
lock lid to discover a boy curled up
inside, rrylng in so hoarse a voice as
scarcely 10 oe aiinmie.
It transpired that some older boys
had locked Lioyd in the bread box in
fun the afternoon prevlotis, and that
in the absorption of their play they
had completely forgotteu him.

the enthusiasm of the members of !

found people attending public meet

-un tno agrarian side things are
becoming serious. In many counties
the people are resorting to violence
to prevent the letting of farms for

The demand that farms be let for

many families. In one county revoli
tion practically prevails. In several
places the people are seized with the
ancient hunger for land. They want
land In order that they may live. In
many places the eople are living rn
bread, potatoee and tea, while thou
sands of rich acres are near by which
they are unable to rent.
"I was surprised to find a wave of
temperance sweeping over Ireland.
Young men everywhere are preaching
the moral cause of temperance on
political grounds. It is argued that
the way to hit England Is to stop In
ere ax lug England's revenue from the
sale of beer and whisky,
"This policy Is certain lo decrease
the bank accounts of the largest Irish
landlords and distillers. It is nw un
popular for young Irishmen to drink
Ireland today contains more extra
ordinary young men .of Intelligence
anil industry than I've seen In any
other country. Ireland's satvatton del-ends
upon her youth; that they will
not fall her. Ireland's grievances are
teal. Misgoverned and landlordism
are at the bottom of them. From 1871
to 1897 2,0iKi,0O0 sturdy emlgranta left
Ireland. In 37 years the population
has decreased 20 per cent while Eng
