The wantad columns illustrate tha
unconcern which many folks seem
to have for their property. Thero
seldom is a week that tho wantads
fail to contain notice of some arti
cle being found. Many of these are
left with the newspaper so that
they may be easily claimed by their
owners. Probably more than half
of such articles are never called
for. Bunches of keys are found al
most every week and, if The Sen
tinel did not get rid of those which
are kept for several weeks with no
owners claiming them, it probably
would have a bushel basket of keys
of every description.
It is rather odd that those who
lose keys seldom advertise the fact
and it is peculiar that keys are the
articles most unlikely to be claimed,
whereas it would seem that the
loser of a bunch of keys would be
anxious for their immediate return.
Often valuable articles of jewel
ry remain unclaimed.
Those losing articles can usually
insure their return by advertising
their loss, but if that is not dono no
loser of any articlo should fail to
read the wantads to see whether
somo honest person has found tho
lost article and advertised the fact.
