Scores Turned Away From Baby Show Sunday Afternoon
Exhibition of Ten Splendid Children Brought Rush of Applications That Will Result in Many Adoptions
Park Theatre and Republican Office Thronged by the Interested
The Weekly Republican - Cape Girardeau, MO - Friday, November 27, 1914
Page 11 - Unfortunate children came into their own Sunday afternoon.
Ten fine little children, arranged in a row across the stage of the Part Theatre, proved a magnet that drew hundreds of people into the place and other hundreds unable to get even a glimpse of them. As many went away, probably, as got to see them...
Page 12 - Mrs. Lee L. Bowman decided to take ARTHUR LOUIS SMITH, 7, one of the finest little boys in the bunch. Mrs. Bowman had kept the little fellow two nights when nobody else had claimed him permanently and found that he was such a splendid specimen of the genus, boy, that she couldn't bear seeing him go to somebody else...

NOTE BY CJB: These adoptions were arranged by Rev. Abe Jones who brought the children to Cape Girardeau from a children's home in St. Louis. Miss Byrne, a matron in the home, accompanied them, and Rev. Jones, the Southeast Missourian Field Agent for the Missouri Home Society, met the party in Cape.
