A TIIIY BABY
ANDf ITS WOES MOTHER
And it had to be Raised in
cubator Rich 'Woman
, , Adopt it Now.'
Portland, O.. Jaly 10. Miss Ma
ry Edna was five months old yes
terday and she weighs nine pounds
avordupois. And with her five
months and nine pounds Bhe has i
acquired a charming sweetness that
has indeed made her queen of all
the hearta that watch over her and
beat in tender sympathy for tbe lit
tle waif that has known no mother
save a wooden incubator.'
It is announced that rare good
fortune has come upon the child.
One of the most prominent women
in tbe city has been attracted to
the little one by her winning smiles
and has visited her many times.
Now the woman intends to adopt
the infant. The announcement has
been received with the greatest sat
isfaction by the friends of the babe.
Five months ago Mary Edna unex
pectedly came into the world. Her
child-motheT was taken to the Flor
ence Crittenden Reiuge home, East
Thirty-first and Glison streets, and
soon recovered.. But when she did
recover tbe mother instinct waB
gone. She turned in revulsion up
on the infant and fled the ' home,
She disowns the child and to this )
day has refused to go near the place.
But her indifference only result
ed in good to the little one. 'The
physician who attended Mary Ed'
na's birth invented an incubator in
which the child has lived and flour
The fame that Bhe had acquired
from tbe novel manner of her de
veloping has brought her scores of
friends. Her story has been told
to many and many have called to
see the child.
' She laughs - and - tries to talk
when she is happy, and poQts and
cries just as other babies when she
is angrv, but sbe is angry less ire
quently than other children. . She
is prompt to recognize strangers
and always greets them with
pleaBicsr smile. There is no differ
ence between this child without
mother and another except her size
She , weighed two and one half
pounds at the time of her birth 'and
even at five months has only "reach
ed nine pounds, an average weight
at Dirtn. -The
other day Miss Mullen, the
superintendent of the home, went
shopping with Miss Mary iana.
The child needed shoes and other
thingB in the way of wearing ap
parel. But shoes could not be
found small enough to fit the tiny
feet -f the tot. All the stores of
the city were visited and at last a
pair v i doll s shoes were purchased.
The give eminent satisfaction aDd
are ource of constant 'delight to
Mi" Mry Edna.
W en Miss Mullen went into the
stoi it soon became noised about
thai Mies Mary Edna, the incuba
tor i i.ild, was in the little bundle
that the superintendent carried in
herK-rms. Shoppers left the wares
and hurried to see the famous child;
cleika drop their cloth to take a
peep at tbe infant and - confusion
reigned until she became weary of
such extravagant attention and an
nounced the fact by pouts and
looks of fear.
Her visit down town also made
her many friends. A few days la
ter she was invited to a home on
Sixteenth street to lunch. She
went attired in her doll shoes and
all her latest finery, accompanied
by Mi8B Mullen and a bottle. Sbe
evidently enjoyed, the day for sbe
made no satirical comments on the
way her host entertained, as -other
people do. T
ihoogn she has never known a
mother and has been entrusted to
the care of strangers fortune has
smiled upon the child. Her unu
sual cleverness and constant good
nature have won for her a patron
ess who has announced her inten
tion of adopting the child and "te
queatbing to her a name well
known in Oregon. And with the
name goes a competence' that will
assist in making Mary Edna more
than a belle when she is grown.
The woman who has fallen in love
with the child and proposes to a
dopt her refuses to permit the use
of her name. She belongs to one
of the city's oldest and most re
spected families, j ;
7 The adoption will be as quiet as
possible. The child will be remov
ed to the woman's home thia week
and he legal proceedings will be
postponed until ' the newspapers
have forgotten all about the case.
Mary Edna's name will be changed
and she will never know of her
mother and the strange manner of
her bringing up.
It is tbe most earnest wish of tbe
woman that all .knowledge of the
past shall be kept from the child
even when she is grown. - Every
one at the Crittenden home is de
lighted with the child's prospects.
She is the idol of tbe place and
there are tears when her departure
is mentioned. ,,. -

The first installment . of -jihe
Independent telephones for the city
patrons arrived Monday evening
from Kansas City. About 200 wires
are already in place for Corvallis

will be put in as rapidly as the
work can be prosecuted. . The city
instruments are different from those
used for rural lines, 40 of the latter
having already been received. The
local stock holders of the company
are well pleased with the success ot
the Central Energy system so far as
it has been tested in this locality,
and no fears are- entertained but
what the undertaking will prove en
tirely satisfactory to all concerned.
