A BRAVE LITTLE BOY
Arrives From The East To Become A Member Of The Haskell Home Family.
A little boy about 8 years old giving his name as Albert Peters, arrived in the city yesterday afternoon via the M. C. R. R. having come all the way from Hartford, Conn., alone.
Officer Godsmark happened to be at the depot when the 3:30 train from the east arrived, and the little fellow was turned over to him, by the porter.
He presented a letter to the officer, which stated that he was from the above named city and was on his way to the Haskell Home. It was a most pathetic scene, and had it not been for the comforting words of Officer Godsmark, he would have broken down entirely, as it was, when mention was made of his home and of his mother he could not refrain from tears, but he was a brave little fellow and he and his friend, the policeman, were soon on their way to his new home, and after reaching there he seemed much pleased, and told officer Godsmark that he believed he should like Battle Creek very much, after he should have become better acquainted.
