WHY "TIM" I'liAYEI) TRUANT
. Pathetic Incident Told to Denver's
Famous Children's Judge.
Judge Llndsey, the famous "child
ren's Judge" of Denver, does not be
lieve that there are bad boys. "Boys
do bad things," he has been heard to
say, "but they aren't really bad
themselves. There Is a lot of good
In the worst of them and we can
usually And It If we try." Perhaps
of all the public, men interested in
the welfare of the so-called bad boy
he has been the most successful in
finding the good he speaks of so
There are cases, However, that are
baffling even to his patience. One
of these was that of a 13-year-old
boy who was brought Into the juve
nile court on a charge of truancy.
Tim was a bright-looking little chap
and tho judge expected that his
kindly admonition would bear im
mediate results, but he was disap
pointed, for at the end of a fort
said the Judge.
"Yes, sir," was the answer; but at
tho next report day there was no im
provement. "Tim will stay out of
school to work," wrote the teacher.
"Tim," said Judge Llndsey, look
ing across the table where he always
sits with cozy Informality among the
boys brought into court for varying
degrees of delinquency, "don't you
know that If your mother was living
she'd want you to go to school? Your
aunt Is good to you and gives you a
home and you don't have to work.
Now's the time when you ought to
be studying. You can work when
you are a man."
"My father's a man and he don't
work," blurted out Tim. "He went
off and left mother nn me. I guess
that's what killed her." The boy
gulped down a sob and tho Judge
said gently: "Your mother wished
you to be a good man and you must
begin by obeying the law and going
Monument for Mother.
Tim's report still continued to
show absences from school and to
one report the teacher added her
opinion that it was hapelcss to try
to keep Tim at his studies. Still tho
judge was not discouraged and he
spoke again to the boy, urging him
to mend his ways, and was answered
only by an almost sullen stolidity of
expression which did not seem to
promise well. But at the end of tho
next two weeks Tim appeared with
a happy face and a much-improved
He pulled a soiled and crumpled
paper from his pocket and handed It
to the Judge. "I'm goin' to remem
ber all the things you told me and
I'm goln' to school regular now I got
that done," he said with some pride.
Judge Llndsey examined the paper,
which proved to be a receipted bill,'
and found that, little by little, Tim
had paid $50, for a headstone at his
mother's grave. "
"My boy, Is that what you've been
doing all. these months?"
"I wanted her to have a monu
ment, Judge." Tim furtively wiped
away the moisture In his eyes. "She
done a lot for me; that's all I could
do for her now."
