Daughter in college
Did you hear about the banker who was recently arrested for embezzling $100,000 to pay for his daughters college education?
As the policeman, who also had a daughter in college, was leading him away in handcuffs, he said to the banker, "I have just one question for you. Where were you going to get the rest of the money?"

Employer: "In this job we need someone who is responsible."

A RUNAWAY BOY.
The Nine-Year-Old Son of J. A. Rock is Missing.
The nine-year-old son of J. A. Rock, residing at 824 East Third street in this city, ran away from home last Friday at noon and has not been seen since. The father moved his family here about five weeks ago from Ringgold Co., Iowa, and it is supposed that the boy has started to go back to Iowa to relatives there.
Last Tuesday he tried to run away but was caught and brought back, and at the time he gave as his excuse that he wanted to go back to Iowa.
He tried the wagon road the first time and as that plan did not work he may have taken the railway route this time.
He is supposed to have gone north, but no trace of him can be found in any direction. The father wishes that any person who finds his son may notify him at once at his address given above, and hold the boy until settled for.
The boys name is Lee Evert Rock, but he is liable not to give his right name, as he used only his middle name the first time he ran away.
When he left home he wore a straw hat, a green flowered calico waist and brown cotton knee pants, and was barefooted. A boy of his small stature and tender years will be sure to attract attention traveling alone over the country, and it ought not to be a difficult matter to get trace of him.
