FINDS CHILDREN AFTER TWENTY YEARS.
That it pays to advertise was again brought to light when the 20-year search of Jacob Zalendek, of Barry, Minn., for his two children ended after placing an advertisement in several newspapers. One of the children of Mr. Zalendek was located in Coatesville and the other near this city.
John Ross, a railroader, living on West Diamond street, Coatesville, is the son and the other child, a girl, who also formerly lived in Coatesville, but who some time ago, married a man named Burns, was found near Reading.
According to the story of Mr. Zalendek, he was living near Reading 20 years ago. He was of SLavish descent while his wife was a Polish woman. They disagreed and finally the wife deserted her husband, taking her two children with her. From that day, 20 years ago, Zalendek has been conducting his search for his children.
