Baby found Partly- On Friday morning Mayor Findley brought into the town square the hand and arm of an infant found in James Findley's pond. , the balance of the baby having probably been eaten by German Carp fish in the pond. How the baby got into the pond no man will tell yet. The matter is in the hands of city police. We hope the mystery will be solve.
