          Albert Norvell,  who was convicted Tuesday by a jury in the circuit court on the charge of deserting his wife, leaving her without means of support, was taken to Indianapolis last evening by Sheriff John Butler.  This morning they started for Michigan City, where Norvell will be incarcerated for a period of from one to three years.  This is the first conviction in this county on the wife desertion charge since the offense was made a felony.

Baby  Girl  Born  to  Clara  Norvell
Brought  to  this  County  From  Franklin -- 
Mother  Will  Not  Care  For  It.
(From Wednesday's Daily.)
          The baby girl which was born to  Miss Clara Norvell  in this city several weeks ago and which has been in the  Johnson orphans' home is now an inmate of the Gordon Children's Home.  The child was brought to the city this week by the city Marshal of Franklin and was accepted at the home on the order of  Township Trustee Wherritt.  As the child was born in this city, the trustee had no alternative than accept it as a charge on Shelby county.
          Soon after the birth of the child it was taken by  Albert Norvell  of this city, the father of the young mother, and left at the house of  Elmer Gregg, the alleged father of the child, near Greenwood.  The Greggs, refusing to care for the baby, turned it over to the Johnson county authorities and they, in turn, placed it in the orphans' home at Franklin.
          After keeping the child for several weeks the Johnson county authorities decided that the child should be maintained by Shelby county.  Accordingly it was brought to the Gordon Children's home.
