A Wild Boj.
Tiie town of Livermore, Cal.,
has a wild boy that eats grass
lives on roots and herbs and does
all sorts of strange things. For
years this wild boy has lived in
his father's pastures, and has
been as contented as any ordina
ry mortal would be in a well
Xurnished and comfortable home.
The unfortunate lad has a name
and a home, but he does not re
gard either as much as any ra
tional being would. He prefers
to frisk around in his father's
grain fields and chase the fright
ened children of the neighbor
hood down the country roads.
John Worth is the wild boy's
name and he is about fifteen
years old. His father is Harrison
Worth, who lives on a little tract
or ground a few miles out of Liv
ermoro. fhe boy has been a
terror to the neighbors for a long
time Ever since his birth he
has been an imbecile, and all at
tempts to teach him even the ru
diments of understanding have
been but dismal failures.
