Baby goes back home
The abandoned baby mentioned in the Record of last week was promptly adopted by Mr. and Mrs. H.G. Rosenberg of Aulne. They are fine people and a good home was assured for the baby girl, but the innocent little thing was booked for another move.
It appears that a family living near Hope heard of the baby being abandoned and strongly condemned the action of the mother deserting her child. Then one of the daughters, who had stood in fear of her father’s wrath, broke down and confessed that the child was hers. After talking it over several members of the family drove to Marion to claim the child. The matter was finally ironed out and they were allowed to take the baby and depart for their homes.
