Year-and-a-Half Old Boy Living Near Lowry, Minn., Missing Since Tuesday.

Alexandria, Minn., Nov. 2.-Hundreds of citizens of Lowry, with the aid of bloodhounds, are searching for a lost child, the year-and-a-half old son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Brown residing on the southern line of Douglas county. The little one has been missing since Tuesday noon and no clue has been discovered.

On Tuesday Mr. Brown took the child to the barn while he was harnessing his team for the afternoon's work. The little fellow was left outside. In a few minutes the father returned with his horses and outside met his wife who laughingly asked if he intended to take the child plowing.

Missing the boy, she asked where he had gone. The husband did not know. After searching the premises and not discovering him, neighbors were called. Every nook and corner was searched. That night 150 persons joined in the hunt.

The dogs used in the search yesterday followed the track to a trail of woodland east of the Brown home, where the scent was lost.

Private John A. Anderson, 28, who had been serving with the American Expeditionary forces in France since last spring, is reported to have died of disease on September 22. Knute Hegland, a well-known farmer of the Thompson district, for whom Anderson worked before going into service was notified of the latter's death, a few days ago.

Anderson's home was in Christiania, Norway, but he had been in this country for some years, and for three years was employed as a farm hand by Mr. Hegland. He left with selective service from this county, last March.

Mrs. C. Neros, 1620 International avenue has been notified that her cousin, Cleve Mortenson has been seriously wounded in action. Young Mortenson went abroad with the Pennsylvania National Guard and has been in active service since last spring.
