STORY OF A WAIF. A pathetic incident occurred at the Children's Court at Birmingham, when a little girl named Clara Dawson, looking like a lit tie Red Riding Hood, and carrying a doll which she fondled ana kissed, was charged with not being under proper guardianship. Clara lived with a young woman of the unfortunate" class, who told the magistrate that five years ago the child's mother was turned out of her house by the landlord, Clara, her two months' old child, being left behind. 0 The young woman who found her sleeping in a cupboard, took charge of the baby, with the mother's consent, wrapped her in a petticoat and took her to her own mother's house. Both she and her mother had grown very much attached to the little girl. When the magistrate decided to remand the child to the workhouse for a week she cried, but toddled bravely out of the court with a policeman, closely hugging her doll, as though afraid it would be taken from her. As she went along the corridor a rough-looking man suddenly bent down and kissed her.
