Mrs. Alexander Gave It Away, Now
Wants It Back.

Mrs. Laura Alexander, 1743 Oak street, appealed yesterday to the Humane society for aid in finding her 3-year-old-daughter, Edith Juanita, who, so the mother stated, had been abducted by a woman giving her name as Mrs. Collins, but who, it was later learned was Mrs. L. A. Goodrich of 1003 Wyandotte street.

Edith Juanita Alexander, Missing Baby

Mrs. Goodrich first saw the baby with Mrs. Woods, 1743 Oak street, in a dry goods store. She gave her name as Mrs. Collins and at Mrs. Woods' suggestion called upon the baby's mother to see about taking the child to board. She was accompanied by a man, who she said was her husband. The couple took the baby and the woman later left town, going to Lansing, Kas., where she is said to have been seen and heard to say she intended returning to Kansas City.

Goodrich, who works at Twenty-second and Wyandotte streets for the Standard Scale and Foundry Company, said his wife had not lived with him since March 16, but she had brought the baby to see him at 413 West Twentieth street last Wednesday night. The police are looking for the woman.
