Owner Had Been Searching All Day
for the Animal.

It was reported to the office of the Humane Society in the city hall yesterday afternoon that a cat had been out on a window sill of the Majestic rooming house, Fifth and Walnut streets, all day long. Merchants on the opposite side of the street who saw the feline out there with the window closed down made the complaint. The cat appeared to be much agitated and was making its perilous position known.

When an officer went to investigate the case the cat had just been taken in. "That's a pet cat," a woman said, "and has been lost all day. We had no idea where she was until some man came up and told us that she was closed on the outside of a window. Haven't any idea how the cat got there."
