a boy named Stanley Clark, who, a few days

would not give him money to Jattend the
Owensboro Fair. He was sitting in com

dren, in the family sotting room, when the
subject of tho Fair came up incidentally.
Not the slightest apparant Importance was
given to the matter; it was talked of like

'Mother, I wish yuu would let me have a
