In traveling on the JN. & W.

folks wonder why their children
go crooked. Listen, a large lady
came on the train up the C. C. &
0. from F—with a number of
children, small baby in her arms
and a large boy looked to be 15
or 16 years of age; he wore knee
pants, and sat down so low in
his seat in such a spawling posi
tion his head scarcely reached the
top of the seat: “Fare please,
announced a good smiling con
ductor.” After speaking a few
words the woman announced the
large boys age aslOyears. “He’s
mighty large to his age.” ‘,We
are all large in the family,” the
woman snapped. I did not dis
pute the statement, she was large
in build, but oh, how small I felt
for her! such petty meanness that
could grow so big in the boy. first
step in being and cheating. Well
I wLh you could have seen how
large that same boy looked as he
got off the C. C. &0., and chang
ed trains at St Paul Va., for east
bound train Jo • I lubield, W. Va.
The same game was played on
the conductor of the N. & W.
Lady if you read this, may be
you will remember a traveler in
blue. Will give you this advice,
if your boy grows up to cheat
and lie, don’t blame him, mother
taught the first trick. A
stranger hopes that son will feel
the shame of it and not follow in
your foot steps. A few pennies
saved; but at what a price! re
spect for mother gone; just think.
Honesty pays in all things. Trav
eler.
