1924 :: The Diamond Earscrew


Special to The News. Rockdale, Milam Co., Texas, Feb. 6. -- Lost and found for the third time is the history of a diamond earscrew which has just been returned to Mrs. C.F. Drake by little Billye Gaither, who found the missing article on the radiator of the car which conveyed Mrs. Drake to a U.D.C. meeting some three weeks ago, since which time the car has traveled many miles over city and country roads. Although a believer in advertising, Mrs. Drake refused to advertise for the glittering bauble, contending that it would "find itself," which has been the case on two former occasions, being found on the streets of Rockdale last spring and again during the holidays it was found in the family car in Dallas, where it was picked up by her little grandson, with the baby exclamation, "Pretty bead."
