15illv was a newsboy. If the truth
be told he was not exactly n nice
newsboy. Indeed, he might well
be called a bad boy. His face and
hands were rarclv clean: his clot lies
were old and worn and his shoes
were badlv run down and broken.
And. still worse. Itillv bnd lmmv
habits that no really nice boy would
have. He ran wild on the streets

What is more, Hilly swore. Yes,
along with his companions of the
street, he would take an especial de
light in swearing. If he was angry,
he swore. If he was happy, then,
to, he would swear, All of which,
maybe wasn't exactly his fault for
he had been to school but vcrv little
and had picked up many bad habits
while selling Ins papers on the
(hie evening he sold all of his
papers- every one of them. He
was quite jubilant so concluded he
would treat himself to a moving
picture show. Put that meant
spending five whole pennies, so he
felt he must look at the posters in
front of the difTerenl moving pict
ure places very carefully in order to
pick the best.
He had Inspected several of them
before he came to the one which he
felt Was the cne he desired to see.
and yet he was not quite certain,
for he recalled the announcements
of several films at a theatre down
the street which looked mighty in
teresting. So he stood and ponder
ed the matter.
Just then a big hand gripped him
by the shoulder. Instinctivly Billy
tried to dodge, for ho knew it must
be a policeman chasing him away
from the front of the theatre. But
"Like it, Lad?" asked a jovial
voice. And the speaker patted him
on the shouldr kindlv while he smil
ed down upon him. '"All right,
let's go in and see the show."
"Huh?" gasped little Billy, could
it be that this big, j-illy-faeed man
was actually inviting him to go in
at his expense! No, hardly, for
but very few people ever gave the
little fellow a kind word.
So Billy stood staring at the stran
ger as he stepped up to the box
office window, pulled out a pocket
book crammed with bills and bought
two tickets. It seemed to the little
news-boy that there must be a mil
lion dollars in that pockctbook.

away from the window and stuffed
the four dollar bills carelessly into

two seats, "let's go in here. You
can see 'cm better way back than
you can up front, anyway."
They were soon seated and nb

At the end of the picture the lights
flashed up a liltle and Billy, who
had never felt shy in his life before,
looked up out of the corner of his
eye at his benefactor.
But the big man wasn't looking
at him at all. Instead be was star

And there was something in Bil

the pickpocket be meant it. So,
without a word, the perfumed thief
got to his feet and went out. But,
as he shoved his way past Billv, he

"Ouch! What " cried Billy.
And he started to add sometime
that would have sounded very much
like real swearing but remembered
in time that perhaps his new-found
friend would't like it. But his feet
hurt dreadfully, just the same.
"What's the matter?" asked the
big man, turning around.
"That guy that just went out

And, do you know, Billy never
said a word the entire evening about
the pickpocket. Which, don't you
