Eight years ago a young man-call
him Jones was sent to the peniten
tiary for killing n man In a Colorado
mining camp.
It Is said Jones did tho killing In self
defense. However that may be, he
became n model prisoner nnd at the
end of tho eight years was paroled,
tho terms being that ho should not
leave the confines of the state.
Jones got a Job on a farm. .
The farmer knew tho ex-convlct's
history nnd took advantage of It. work
ing the man unmercifully. Jones found
life outside the prison harder than It
had been on the tnsldo and after eight
een months rebelled nnd quit He tried
to get a new Job.
Remember Jean Val Jean?
Jones discovered, as did Victor
Hugo's hero, that it Is difficult for an
ex-convlct to get a Job.
Finally he determined to quit being
an ex-convlct He violated his parole,
assumed another name and went to
Montana, where be took up a homo
stead. Inside of two years Jones, who bad
prospered, became a lending citizen of
his settlement He courted the daugh
ter eff a neighboring farmer, and to
her ho told bis full story. The girl
promptly accepted him.
Enter Javert.
Remember how that nstuto officer of
the law hounded Jean Val Jean? A
detective who had been searching for
Jones since he bad violated bis parole
recognized him. Luckily, however, he
permitted the latter to return to Colo
rado without publicity.
Jones told his story to Warden Ty
nan, who Investigated nnd found It to
be true. What Impressed the warden
more than nil else was that Jones bad
told the truth to the girl he wanted to
who figures In this real story
as did M. Myrlel, the good bishop of
D. in Hugo's masterpiece, got the pa
role board together. They listened to
Tynan nnd got out a permanent parole
for Jones, permitting him to live wher
ever he might choose.
The sequel?
The sequel Is as fine as any In the
old fashioned story books. Jones has
gone back to Montnna and was mar
ried Aug. 1 to the farmer's daughter.
It is predicted ho will become almost
as highly honored In his new home as
was M. Madcllno, the mnyor.
And tho moral?
He who runs may read.
Young man
That man who In your presence tries
to tell a smutty story Insults your soul.
Turn on your heel and leave him.
Morally such a man attempts a crime
that is meaner than that of reaching
for your pocketbook. Tho motive for
the crimo muy be lacking. He may
not realize bis offense. As a matter of
fact, morally considered, be is guilty
Just tho same.
Some of these peddlers of filth aro
wblted sepulcbers gentlemenly as to
outside appearance, but Inwardly filled

This is a good rule for you:
Do not permit yourself willingly to
listen to any Bort of story that you
would not be willing to tell again to
your mother or your sister.
A filthy suggestion will soak Into your
clean mind as spilled Ink will soak Into
clean blotting paper.
Permit no one to drag your mind
through bis sewer.
Do you know many a grown man of
today would sacrifice considerable to
wipe clean from the tablets of his
memory stories and suggestions be lis
tened to when a boy?
I cannot think a real gentleman will
take deliberate care to repeat a risque
story In the presence of youth.
