tion, and in the list of names of ! hose
who had perished in the flames war
that of his own daughter. He wrote
the sisters in charge, and, receiving
no answer, never again heard of hi*
i daughter and mourned her as deaci.
Yesterday noon, a young woman,
2H years old, stepped from the train
and as she did so was accosted by ;jb
aged man. They looked at each oth-
er a moment and then with a glad
* cry of "Kather'—Daughter!'anil with
tears in their eyes from excess of
happiness fell into each other's arms
with feelings only of a father who
had mourned a daughter as dead for
eighteen years, and a daughter who
had sought a father she had lost in
infancy and despaired of ever seeing
again and had given up forever the
divinest of human joy, that of know-
ing the warm love of a parent.
Miss Keiffer, of course, was not
among the dead as published in the
'newspapers, but the sisters took her
to San Francisco, where she became
a servant in one of the institutions
and has lived there ever since. She
remembered her father's name and
was always on a lookout to find him.
' Six weeks ago she wrote to Mayor
Davis, of Kansas City, it he knew the
whereabouts of W. M. Keiffer, and
the mayor sent news to a man in St.
Mary, Kansas, by the name of Keiffer
who proved to be a brother. Of
course, with this connection the
daughter and father soon found each
other's existence and yesterday sim-
ply verified the fact to one another
that each was alive.
