EAGAR TO ADOPT CHILDREN~~~~People Near Fayette Take Nine
Homeless Ones and Ask For MoreFayette, May 4. --- The town was full on Friday of people from the country and as far as Elkader to see the New York children who arrived that forenoon. There were five boys and four girls from three to twelve years old in charge of Miss Comstocel. There were three sisters, also a brother and sister, also two brothers, all finding different homes except the brother and sister, who went the Forest Johnson home near Randalia. The three sisters found homes all within six miles of each other east of Lima in the Boland, Hutchinson, and Holtzman homes. The brothers went near Hawkeye, about three miles apart, to the W.W. Alley home and another the name of which we did not learn. A boy goes to the John Langerman home east of town and a boy to the Frank Patterson home south of town. All are in homes of well-to-do farmers. The demand was greater than the supply, as there wee over fifty applicants, and Miss Comstock has promised to bring more homeless children.  She will remain here till she visits all of the homes where she has placed children.
