With his great brown eyes smiling «t
Judge ' Wilbur nnd the fine flush of
youth playing over his cheeka, James
Robinson, 14 years of age, stood up
before the bar ln tho Juvenile depart

ceived sentence of scvon years nt the
state rpform school nt Whlttler.
The lad i« the most remarkable sub

ho spoko with the easy tone of the
man who Is mire of himself.
JameH or "Jim," as he is known on
four continents, has traveled to every
corner hf the earth during the past
five yearn and hi* long Klege of out
door training <.nd hln hnrd buffets with
men of nil nationalities nnd disposi
tions have made a man of him.
The story of his brief HCe sounds like
a prize adventure story nnd when
"Jim" speakß of his adventures it Is
with the proud tone of the blase globe
trotter nnd the easy Innguage of the
philosopher. Yet whlln the hoy speaks

Is Blase Globe Trotter
He gave tho first Interview of his
life to a representative of The Herald
yesterday while he sat buck In the
prisoners' dock of tho court and beat
one ragged shoe Hgaln&t the other.
His fair round face wag the picture
of health and his twinkling eyes
ehowed hl« good humor.
"Well," he began as he shoved a seml
fllrty hand through his towsled brown
hair and looked over at the Judge to
eeo if the official whs listening, "I
guess I don't know where to begin on
the dope. You see It's not bo good a

"I was born ln Galveston, Tex., sind It
was a durn good old place to live. Me
and my dad and mam were all happy
there until 1900. Funny about that, I
had been begging them to let me go
to my cousins at Houston and they
let me go and the next thing I heard,
was the flood and I went to Galveston
us quick as I could. I was 9 years old
then, but I knew a couple of things
nnd when I saw the body of my dad at
the morgue and a bunch of weeping
women told me that my mother was
out in the ocean somewhere, I know it
was no time to howl my head off like
any other kid and I took It all in
VThe women must have meant well,
hut they didn't understand me and
they sent me to the poor farm. That
was a bad place for a boy who wants
to see the world, and so a bunch o£
us got together and made a break.
Doesn't Like China
"I and another feller got away and
that started it. We went for the bot
tom lands*, where the good people live,
end for about two months we camped
out in the woods, living like Indians
and swiping chickens and honey. We
got corn bread from the niggers and
we lived like kings. Lots of times
since then when I was hungry and cold
in some corner of the world I thought
of that grub and I nios' cried.
"Well, we ducked and I started alone.
I wont to China on a ship and about
the third day out tho cap. found me
tucked away among the coalblns. He
cussed some, but he said all right,
kid. I guess you go to the Chinks all
right, and I Raid, 'Yes, cup., thank
you,' and he laughed.
"But I had a hard time in that China.
It HoundH all right to talk about flow
ery kingdom and whenever I hear fel
lows talking about the wonders of the
Orient I. turn my back and cay, •hell 1
a coupl<;. of times to forget the treat
ment tho yellow boys gave me. The
Chinks are the grouchieat mitts this
Bide of the other side, nnd all the
time I was in China 1 never received
even a dried mackerel without paying
"I worked my wav out of that l!o\v
ery digging on a boat und went to
Japan. I liked Nagasaki best, al
though'some of the other cities might
look well If they were stuck out around
Blminl baths or Home, place as sort
of decorative scenery. The Japs treat
ed me square and gave me pome grub
once in a while, but I don't like the
way they havo of cutting their moun
tains up Into tea gardens.
"I shipped on a merchant to Saigon,
French Indo-Chlmi. From there I
worked down to Port Said on a teak
boat. I catches aP. O. liner and
made merry England. It was a long
voyage, but I had a snap and bully
"Just made a grand loaf of It through
the Mediterranean. From Liverpool I
catches a Russllin transport with a
cargo mostly of American flour. That
takes me to Sebastopol, and I works
jny way to St. Petersburg.
Teaches Cossacks a New Game
"Thut was during the war and It
waa the worst yot. If it hadn't been
for the soldiers I guess I would have
starved. I gets in with a regiment
bound for some place at the front.

berla I *et« sidetracked properly. The
officers made . me quit. I guem they
think I wan mixed up in a gambling
Riiine. Leant they laid It to me be
cause they'd never seen the men shoot
crn.ps before I got In with the hunch.
''That railroad was the hardest thing
1 ever struck. After I lonen my regi
ment I had a hard time tor a couple
of months, and one place It took me
nineteen day* to make leM thnn a
thousand mllea, most of It on brake
beams, and I didn't chew very often,
"Every time 1 tackled a pawenßer
train It would be an officer* outfit and
I got kicked off go much I wn« bruised
up na If a Bowery cop had fanned me
tome with hla night stick.
"I makes Mukden, and there a Ger
man attache helped me nlonff a lot. He
whs going to Kalotl Chow, a biff Ger
man station in China. From there I
made Hongkong nnd passed coal on a
trump for 'Frisco.
"Then I went to New Tork and to
England and all over the continent and
down to Cairo and Alexandria.
"Say, that rountry may be pood
enough for a nlptger but nix for mine,
mid I ducked out and went to the Suea,
working my way on boats.
Heada for de Bowery
"I ngaln made port and there saw a
llrltlsh Bteamcr that looked good. I
made Genoa, and from there Just went
n board the Clttl dl Iloma and sailed for
little old New York.
"Say, de Uowery looked jrood to me,
but I'm really a western man and I
soon hit the rond for Portland.
"I saw the Lewis and Clurk fair, but
the sea was a-calllng me again, nnd
from Portland I drops to 'Frisco and
ships on the transport Sherman, but the
skipper didn't recognize me and put me
off tit o unm and told me to walk back.
That skipper was a good sailor but a
poor guesser. I caught the transport
Grant and wheeled some coal but got
right back to the coast.
" 'Frisco hadn't missed me, and no
brass bands were at the yard when I
returned. It blew In cold one dny and I
ordered a first class ticket on tho roof
of tho. Owl and blew down to Los An-
PBles, where a glnny from the Herwlck
Paint company thinks he'll do the
'Willie off the yacht' stunt, and he buys
me a big feed at a hash foundry and
tells the head biscuit bouncer at the
Joint to Rive me all the grub I can
sling my teeth over.
"Then he put me to hard labor at a
bone per week nnd he thought he had
a good thing and ho worked me near to
death. He never gave me any more
salary until I changed cafes nnd went
to chew at a Jap restaurant. The grub
there reminded ma of old times, but I
couldn't enjoy the things I ate nor I
couldn't enjoy my sleep.
Meets an Alaskan Friend
"I gest kep a thlnkin' about how I
was working about fourteen hours a
day for almost nuthln' and then a. sour
dough what I bunked with in Dawson
City, Alaska, blew in town, and when I
told him my troubles he says all right,
we'll go down and burn the Joint up.
So I went down with him and we
started to burn tho place down, hut I
Just couldn't do it when I saw all the
paint blushes laying round loose, and
then I took a couple of bikes down
there and we took the saddles off and
threw the handle bars around an broke
all the paint brushes and spilled some
paint and left, and then they arrested
me and brought me to court.
"That'a been my trouble all along. So
long aa I stay out In the wilderness and
Jungles I'm all right, but Just as soon
as I hit a berg I'm pinched. I've been
pinched in every town I've ever been in.'
Oh, .1 don't. think I'll stay at Whlttier
any too long. A good fat grin goes a
long way with some people and I've
grinned my way round the world and
I guess I can smooth things over and
some day mo for the tall timbers.
"But anyhow my pal got most of the
Junk from Berwick's, an If I'd took his
advice and blew I'd been all right, .but
I wanted to see the bunch cuss when
they saw all the paint spilled and the
brushes busted. They was always so
damn particular about their brushes."
