Abandoned a Girl Baby

New York, 1895

The police of Flushing are trying to locate the heartless mother of the infant that was left on the veranda of the Flushing hospital Sunday morning. The cries of the baby attracted the attention of the hospital authorities, who are now taking care of it. It was wrapped in a blanket and was about twenty-four hours old. It is a girl.

They Were Nice Looking Men

Two nice looking men drove into Amityville and put up at a hotel. Later in the day they sold the rig to a livery stable keeper, who soon after sold the horse to E. Bisch, who lives in Amityville. Saturday a detective and two men went to Amityville and claimed the horse. The animal had been stolen from Uriah Ellis of Brooklyn.
