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 blanks and a good pefK Then ho pro ceeded to Ml In the blank checks with a good deal of care, making them call for various amounts. Having prepared his bait with due con sideration for the wariness of Ihe game he was seeking to catch, this pauper money hunter went forth In a confident humor. And he got the money. One firm cashed a check for !, according to the best Information obtainable where everybody Is too proud and chagrined to talk out loud. Another firm cashed a check for Mo, says the whispering dickey bird hovering about the Christmas counters. It does not appear, at this time, that the cheek maker has been arrested. What's the luse?" Is said to have been tied to do so tho weary comment of ono victim. "He a pfruper and probably spent the money as soon as he got It or planted It safely ono place of residence under county or slate auspices Is as welcome to him as another,, and to arrest and profecute htm Is simply throwing good money after bad. We shall probably chargo It to profit and loss and put an able-bodied club In soak for the nest artist who attempts to execute a like trick." 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 Against Tobacconist 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." (nmmlns Admitted to Hall. NFAV YOniC, Pee. '!.-William J. Cum- In the mar mlns.

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 havior. , MAJOR BARKER SUFFERS .
