A strange case came to light 'ast
Saturday afternoon when Fred Mar
shall, a teamster In the employ of
P. P. Collier, the fuel man, found
his two daughters, Bessie and Edna,
who had been kidnapped from his
home In Boise over three years ago.
He had gone Into the Alexander De
partment Store and there discover
ed the little girls In the care of Mrs.
U E. Cook, the daughter of Rev. G.
W. RIgby, who had taken them
when their mother died over a year
ago at Echo.
The history of the case Is a pe
culiar one. Over three years ago Mr.
Marshall was living with his wife 'n
Boise, when she eloped with a man
named Dan Clifford, taking the child
ren with them. Although Mr. Mar
shall made every effort to. find them
he could not get trace of the fugi
tives, and at last came to this part
of the country, where he has since
About a year ago Mr. RIgby was
called to Echo to attend the funeral
of a woman who had died with ty
phoid fever, and found there were
two children left by her called iom
and Dick. One of them was taken
down with the fever and It was
then discovered by the neighbors
that the little sufferer was a girl.
Feeling sorry for the child, Mrs.
Cook, who resides In the vicinity rf
Pendleton, on a ranch, sent for the
girl and has since cared for her as
Clifford, after working on tho sym
pathies of the people of Echo to the
extent of over n couple of hundred
dollars, went to Weston, taking the
other child, who has since also been
found to be a girl, with hlra. He
lived there for some time, giving
tho child Into tho care of a lady
In that city. One day be gave the
woman a sum of money and the
child a smaller one as a present.
and In the evening asked to borrow i
it, saying that he would return It in
the morning. Since that time noth
ing has been heard fo him.
At this time .Mr. Marshall, the
father of the children, was hauling
lumber Into Weston from the moun
tains, and It Is supposed that Clif
ford saw him and made good his es
cape. About this time Mrs. Cox sent
the little girl In Weston money to
come and visit her sister, and since
that time both of tho children bavo
lived with Mr. and Mrs. Cook cn
their ranch. Mr. Marshall has seen
them in the city while with Mrs.
Cook, xtnfl has hauled hay from the
ranch of Mr. Cook, but never was
near enough to the children until
Saturday afternoon to recognize
The children are now at the home
of Mr. Marshall, who has married
again and lives in Pendleton, and
aro happy and content to have found
their father. They are aged 7 and
