SUNDAY SEEKER IS ROBBED.
Kansan Walks About, Falls Asleep and Loses $10 and Shoes.
A Kansas farmer fell asleep in a Kansas City alley last night and when he awoke he discovered that $10, his brand new shoes and a spring hat had been stolen. He walked from Sixth and Washington streets to the police headquarters in his stockings. He said he is James Kinney of Hayard, Allen county.
"I came to Kansas City to hear Billy Sunday talk," he told Lieutenant Peter McCosgrove, "and I spent the afternoon looking over the city. Finally I became so tired from walking that I sat down to rest. I fell asleep and someone unfastened my shoes. He also took about $10 from any pockets, two cigars, a plug of chewing tobacco, a bag of rock candy, a bottle of ginger ale, two pencils, a copy of an Iola newspaper, my new green neck-tie, a dime's worth of chewing gum, a package of cigarette papers, an automobile catalogue, a pocket knife, two ham sandwiches, and my new hat.
The lieutenant gave permission to Kinney to spend the night in the city holdover.
