She Saw The Best Part of It

Webster City Girl Starts Out to See the World

Sees Fort Dodge, But Must See the Balance of the World at a Later Date

Thursday afternoon, in response to a letter from the chief of police of Webster City, Chief Welsh succeeded in finding a young woman nineteen years old who was wanted in Webster City by her widowed mother residing in that place. The young girl, whose name is Bessie Rowe, left her home suddenly and unexpectedly Wednesday and thinking to see the world decided to begin her career of sight-seeing in this city, and came here thinking it would be the last place she would be sought owing to its nearness to her home.

A brief search only was made for her, and shortly before train time she was found at the Tremont House. She had a small sum of money on her person, and a debit for a larger one on the books of the hotel, which was satisisfactorily (sic) arranged for by Chief Welch, who succeeded in getting her release. Hurrying to the train, a ticket was purchased for Webster City, and the young woman’s tour of observation being cut short, she was sent unceremoniously home. The police of that place were notified by telephone so it is probable that Miss Rowe succeeded in reaching her home with safety.
