husband and daughter. No new,s

of the mother must have yearned
over her lost little girl, and what
joyous emotions must have filled
the breast of each when once
ftgain they met!
According to the statement of
Mrs. Joe Tucker, her father wan-

place to place, and would never
give her any satisfaction as t,o

In 1902, at the age of 17 years,
Miss Critz married Mr Joe Tuck-
er at Paul’s Valley, Okla., and
this gentleman affirms that he
could never obtain any informa-
tion from bis father-in-law per-
taining to the girl’s mother or
concerning her early life. After
the marriage the father resumed
his wanderings, no doubt consid-
ering that with the marriage of
his daughter his parental respon-
sibilities ceased or were trans-
ferred to the shoulders of his
son in-law. He was last heard of
by his daughter three years ago
near Loraine, Texas, and in his
last message to ner indicated his
intention of going to Mexico.
During these three years the
young lady, although she has
fouud a husband, suffered the
unpleasantness of a double pa-
rental deprivation, being entire-
ly ignorant of the location of
either father or mother. A
very short time ago, however,
the nephew (if the young lady’s
husband, J. F. Tucker, in a con-
versation with Mrs. Berkett,
who resides near Farmersville,
and wlio had many years known
Mr. and Mrs, Critz, happened to
mention that his aunt was Miss
Luella drita before her marriage
and this casual remark led to a
most joyful reunion of mother
and child. Mrs. Berkett was
able to supply the address of
Mrs. Tucker’s half-brother, H.
Pointer, residing at Woodson,
Texas, who in turn notified his
mother, Mrs. R. M. Eaves,of the
discovery of her long-lost daugh-
Mrs. Eaves drove to Dublin
Monday night, and took the 1 p.
m. train, reaching Farmersville
Wednesday where she had the
supreme happiness of beholding
once again the daughter whom
sho had not sqen for nearly twen-
ty two years. M rs. Tucker and
her husband accompanied the
newly found mother home, the
party arriving in Carlton on the
morning train Monday, and af-
ter a short stay in town, driving
out to the old homestead whore
Mrs. Eaves has resided since the
early seventies. Her son-iu-law
returns to his home the latter
part ol this week, but his wife
will remain with the mother so
happily found for several weeks
