stealing $133 worth of property from
Louis II.' Peterson's saloon, failed to get
Mm a new trial at the hands of Judge
Lee S. Estelle.
"Your honor," said Mullen, weeping,
"as God Is my Judge, If I ever told the
truth In ny . life, I tell it now, as I
htand before you, a broken man, as -1
am, and say I am as Innocent of this
crimo as a new-born bubo."
.The pica of sympathy for Mullen's wife
and children also was used, but the judge
said the law must take its course; he
was satisfied of. Mullen's guilt. He was
given the required sentence, one to ten
years In the penitentiary. i

BOY WITH LOADED DICE
STRAPS HIS PLAYMATES
Pauper Works His
Uraft for Good Coin
A crafty youngster of 10 years was
brought before Juvenile court charged
with swindling his playmates out ot their
pennies. He admitted the charge and
explained how he worked the graft. "I
had two dice," be said, "one of 'em was
loaded. I could always win when I
played them. Every ten shots I would
change to the pair that wasn't loaded, bo
that the fellows wouldn't grow suspi
cious." Ho was released after the dice
had been confiscated and he had given
The Knights of Columbus play the part solemn promise to forego grafting,
In business circles n story too good to
keep Is going tho rounds. It seems that
recently nu Inmate of the county poor
farm decided h would have to secure
some Christmas money, and being of
clever turn of mind, he decided the large
stores had some spare cash he could
probably lay hands on. Ho this ward of
the county secured some nice check

money hunter went forth In a confident
humor. And he got the money. One

the best Information obtainable where
everybody Is too proud and chagrined to

LIKES TO STAY OUT AT NIGHT
BUT SAYS HE WILL QUIT
Henry lltolch, a 10-ycar-old South
Omaha tad, made his debut In Juvenile
court as tho original and only runaway
of the family. He has a penchant for
discourse with the night force at the
stock yards, steals away from home
and spends the "night with them. The
father has tied him to the bedpost, but
when the fever to go comes on, nothing
Stops Mm. He Is a fifth grader, kSn
as a whip, and proved that he was no
mental slouch by questioning the Justice
of bringing him to Juvenile court because
he wanted to be with such "nice men as
trev were at tho stock yards." However,
was reluctantly convinced that he
ought to slay at homo nights and prom-1
mI to ila so. i
v I Will File Charges
P. A. MrOnnlcjr., probation officer of
South fdiutlia, will file charges against
a tobacco dealer tvere alleging he has
violated the statute prohibiting the sr1
of tobacco to minors, which subjects
him to a fine of 500 and six month In
Jail. Joseph and Anton 'Yablonkl, 14;
and 15 years old respectively, testified
In Juvenile court that they had pur
chased tohscco at the McMcI.aughlln
store and had been given cigarette pa
pers. "This Is the first of a setie of
charges we will prefer." said Probation
Officer Mogy Bernstein. ,"Wo are going
to stamp out this practice of selling to
bacco to minors and the dealers may an
well take notice. The nmoklng habit
among the smaller boys has become too
prevalent and we are going to stop It."

Colored Girl's Plea
Secures Her Release
Miss Joslo Henderson, the 15-year-old
colored girl who was taken to the de
tention home because of incorrigibility
and uncontrollable temper, pleaded piti
fully before the Juvenile Judge for an
other chance to make good. She placed
the blame for her "wrong doings" on her
companions and two dance halls which
she had frequented. F.ducated In high
school and for two years secretary of her
Sunday school class, the girl told of her
home life, her mother and sister asserted
between sobs that "she had always been
a nice girl, but had done wrong In stay
ing away from home so long and in go
ing to dance halls."
"When t found the girls I went with
were bad I quit them," she said: "I can
be good If you will give me the chance.
I have the best mother in the world.
The matron of the detention home gave
testimony In the girl's favor, saying she
had been exceptionally well behaved and
could do whatever she doslred. She had
been given unusual opportunities and
possesses a high school education and a
thorough musical training. She was sen
tenced to the detention home, but sen
tence was suspended during good be
