Anna Wanter, Lonely Polish Girl,
Started to Chicago Afoot.

Because some persons in Purcell, I. T., laughed at Anna Wanter, 18 years old, a Polish girl, she walked to Noble, O. T., in an attempt to walk to Chicago, where she has a brother. At Noble a countryman induced her to buy a railroad ticket and she arrived in Kansas City yesterday morning. Her queer actions at the Union Depot aroused the suspicion that she was of unsound mind. She was taken to Central police station, where an interpreter translated her story. The girl had had no sleep since she left Purcell, as she was sure she would be robbed if she went to sleep. She was put on a train bound for Chicago last night.
