Hi Only Dealro.
The fat that peeked out of the small
wicket In the door of the cell reserved
at the Central Emergency hoapftal for
youngster destined for the Juvenile
court was as black as the ace of
pade. It wa the face of a boy about
19 years of age. The whites of his
eyes appeared to be the color of snow
o great was the contrast, and the
great big even white teeth shone
forth like a row of pearls on a piece
Of black cloth. It was a happy-go-
lucky face, and Its owner, though
g rensea in rags, and shoe ess and
stockingless, gave every evidence that
It did not belle him.'
"Hullo, boss," he would any, with a
merry laugh, to those who, In passing
the wicked, would stoop and look at the
pickaninny." Such a cherry remark
would naturally call forth an equally
cheerful response, and then, the Ice
broken, the urchin would poke' his
black, shiny face up to the wicket.
"Say, boss," be would then Invari
ably say, "any chance to get a fellow
some dougnuU?" " ' "'' ' -
