Job While on a Visit to Clinton With
The citizens of Port Byron are a
God-fearing and oeace-loving peo
ple, but now and then, despite their
efforts to keep in the straight and
narrow way. some recreant ton side
steps the beaten path and the whole
town mourns him as one dead. Jnst
now they are in sackcloth and ashes
over a fair-haired boy a lad of much
apparent promise who has strayed
from the path of rectitude and shown,
what in a more worldly community
than Port Byron, would be called a "yel
low streak." Only 14 summers of
sunshine have smiled on Little Willie,
but he has made his reoord good on
his first trial.
Little WUle Begins HI. Career.
A week or two ago he was taken by
his mother on a business trip to Clin
ton and there the first opportunity of
his young life opened to him. . His
mother was talking to the clerk in the
front part of the store while little
Willie wandered about in the rear.
An iron safe is such a queer looking
thing to one so young that he exam
ined it more closely, and when mother
and son came away Willie had a sou
venir in the way of a bunch of the
long green that made the cash account
130 short that night at the clothing
store in Clinton. The two went home
on the boat that evening to Port By
ron, the mother all unconscious that
her little boy was carrying a load of
money heavy enough to make him
Spends Like a Prince.
Nothing strange happened for a day
or two, and then lllie s money ap
prised him it was no good unless be
could spend some. Then he made t
good fellow of himself with his school
mates. Ho gave one f 1 and another
$3, and so on. Willie at least wasn't
stingy. But his liberality found out
his sin. The other boys told their
mammas and they in turn told Willie's
mamma. Then some kindhearted
neighbor telephoned Clinton and
learned the storv of the safe that was
shy $130. There came some men
from Clinton who held earnest conver
sations at Willie's home. After much
bustling among schoolmates and other
little friends a total of $80 was found.
and the - men went back to Clinton
nbout $50 to the bad as a result of
Willie's visit. The little bov's people
are not wealthy, but they have prom
ised to make even with the clothing
man if he is patient.
Meanwhile Willie's playmates sit
around the button factory there and
play "button, button, who'.s got the
