"Boy" Is home again, and Helen
Meyer, his little crippled mistress, is
as happy as she can be. When the re
porter for The Bee heard that "Boy"
had been returned he went -up to see
Helen at'the Saunders school, Forty
first avenue and Cass street; she was
"studying about Central Africa," and
couldn't spare much time for an in
terview, but when she saw "Boy" and
found -out' that the picture man
wanted to take her picture she came
out on her crutches with a broad
smile on her face. -
Boy, who has not been feeling
well since he came home, ran up to
her, offered to kiss her with his cool
black muzzle, and settled down con
tentedly on 'her lap when she took a
seat. ' "Boy loves Helen and her
mother and father think that his con
science is hurting him to make him
look and feel so despondent.
lack Meyer, her, father, did not
really think-it would do any good to
advertise for the dog, but a friend
told him that it was the surest way
of finding the dog and he "took a
chance" and is glad he did. Mrs. M.
Guinane, 2628s Parker street, had been
watching the papers for a lost ad
vertisement since Sunday, when
"Boy" followed her from Forty-first
and California streets.,
Later when she found out from
the news columns of The Bee that
little Helen was a cripple and the
dog was a present from her dead
brother she was only too glad that
she had been able, to return the dog.,
Jack Meyer looks on the return
of "Boy" 'as a turn in the bad luck
that seems to have pursued him and
the family ever since Helen was
stricken with infantile paralysis, nine
years ago. He has spent most of the
money he received for work as a fire
man in efforts to repair the damage
to Helen's lhnbs. Then his wife has

been sick, the children have not been
Jack, junior, died, and only about a
month ago the father, himself, was
almost run down by an automobile
while on his way to work.
"But getting 'Boy' back seems
mighty good, to us. Helen was just
breaking her heart about him. Now
she can go to school without any
sadness mixed in with it. She is a
very good student and is quite an
artist, said Mr. Meyer, Her teacher
confirmed her excellent record in
school and her ability with a pencil.
