Joseph Gast, of Whitmore Lake, was in the city Tuesday to call for the little six year old Elsie Kolask, sent by her mother from St. Louis, Mo.. to relatives in Webster township. Her mother had sewed a tag on her dress with directions. She found kind railroad conductors and friends who cared for her. When she left the last friend on the cars, she cried, but when she got into the happy home of Marshal Gerstner, and felt the motherly kindness of Mrs. Gerstner she forgot all her troubles and played very contentedly with the Gerstner children. She felt so mach at home that she said when leaving she was coming back again to visit them. Marshal Gerstner was told by the relative who called for the child that the father was dead. She was a bright, pretty child and well dressed.
