BROKE BOY’S GLASSES.
Crowd Pushed Into Him and He Might Have
Been Badly Hurt.
It is about timo something was done
to te^oh somo of the hoTs of this bor
ough a lessen, and instill a little sense
into their minds, that is, by teaching
thorn to use their brains more and
tlieir.hands less, when playing. On
tho street corners, or wherever n
crowd of boys are seen, one can al
ways witness the roughest kind of
play and listen to the screaming or
pleading of somo small lad being
pominolod by larger onos.
Saturday evening young Jim Rea
was standing in front of the letter
boxes in tho Post office, when somo
hoys ran and poshed him against the
boxes, breaking ono of the glasses
that he wore on his eyos and brnisiug
the eyelid. Tho boy cried out and
yet none of tho parties standing
nronnd seemed to have presence of
mind enougiijto catch tho hoys who
had run ont of tho office as fust as
they could go. Jim thought that the
boys had run in the door of the office,
but probably heard someono else come
in, as tho boys rushed at him and
conld not toll who had sorved him the
trick. A number of larger boys stood
on the other side of tho offico near a
window and ono party who was in
tlie back part of the office getting
mail oat of a luck box, on turning
around saw that the boys had all dis
appeared, when the little lad cried

the boys were who did such a con
temptible act. Mr. lioddy said if he

arrested. It is a wonder that the
