Officers Charge Sidney Brunner
With Forging Check on Bank
of Kincaid, Kas.

Sidney Brunner, well dressed and handsome, who is said to have sawed out of the Garnett, Kas., jail July 29, where he was held on a charge of forging a check for $262 on the Bank of Kincaid, Kas., in June, was arrested at Fairmount park yesterday afternoon while with a young woman and taken to police headquarters.

The American Bankers' Association notified the Pinkerton detective agency that Brunner was at large and a detective was sent to a room in Kansas City where he had been stopping. Investigation of his trunk disclosed love letters from different young women in many cities, with pictures and locks of hair.

Brunner returned to Kansas City and a detective who, learning that he was enjoying an outing at Fairmount park yesterday afternoon, went there and saw Brunner jauntily coming up the gravel walk with a young woman on his arm. She was gazing into his eyes when the officer stepped up.

"You are under arrest," said the detective.

"You must be mistaken," remonstrated Brunner.

"I guess not," said the officer.

With her head in the air the young woman left both men and was lost in the crowd. The Pinkerton man called up the police headquarters and Detective Charles Lewis took Brunner to headquarters. Out of deference to his handsome face and good clothes he was lodged in the matron's room.

At one time Brunner was fireman on the Missouri Pacific. Later he became a motor car enthusiast and was employed as a chauffeur by several Kansas City families. He would disclose none of their names last night. He will return to Garnett with Sheriff B. B. Babb, who will arrive from there this morning.
