REVOLT AT MOSCOW It reads not unlike romance, does the story of Henry Krotb. After twenty years patient, per sistent search for a loving father of whom lie had the dimmest childhood recollection, now at the age of twenty*live Henry > efforts ; have met with sudden success. To fully appreciate the joy with I which the young man received ' intelligence of his father, perhaps one must tirst suffer such a life* j time deprivation, all the time with the instinctive knowledge that the father still lived and ! loved. I Henry Kroth was born near Waco, Texas- When he was two years of age his mother diod and his father, William VI. Kroth, j placed the child in the care of the mother’s sister until he should grow large enough to join Ins father. Thus he wa- reared, ; Mr. Kroth supporting in comfort I both the child and aunt, until j th e years old. At this t ime Mr. Kroth, who was a railroad conductor, wrote that lie was coming ‘after his boy. The anni had nc-i come very much attache I to the little fellow and loath to give hi I up, hurriedly removed to the vie* j inity of Lehigh, I. I . carefully I covering her tracks Not long afterward this aunt idled leaving the boy to Im* reared by others of tier Kin and by strangers At the age of twelve he was thrown upon his own resources. During molt of the last twelve years he has struggled and rustled for himself in the neighborhood of Ada. I. T. He now occupies the position of freight clerk for the Frisco at thi- station, and is sn industrious young man of excellent character. During all these year* he has made diligent nquiry for his I father, without so much aa hearing of a person hearing the name Kroth. However, he thought be heard when a child thai his fath et s people lived in Kansan Acting upon filii* impression, three week'* ago he wrote letters of I inquiry to every county recorder I in that '-Ute. A response from I one of these wrought the information that a wealthy old farmer of the nam a lived near Havens* I Ville, Kansas v oi»ng Kroth com-Imunicated at once with the atter and received yesterday a tele* I gram from bin announcing that he is the grandf ither of whom 1 the boy i> a namesake and that the father resides at Antimony, j Howard County, Ark. Of cour-e I the son sent a t cleg ran to Ark- I I an-as immediately md to he with hi> father so I practicable.
