" At the age of twelve because of his

for picking up things that did not be
long to him, I had him placed In a
Juvenile school for correction and kept
him there until he was IS years old.
At that time we took him out and
brought him home and I tried to teach
him my trade. After six or eight
weeks of constant trying I was forced
to the conclusion that because of his
mental condition, coupled with his
carelessness, that it would be out of
the question to ever make a mechanic
out of him. It seemed as though 1
was at my wits end. Hut after due
consideration I decided, if I could pet
him on a farm somewhere ho might
be taught to do that kind of work.
Accordingly I corresponded with a
relative of mine, living in a distant
state, who was on a large farm and
finally got them to agree to take him
and try and teach him to work. This
proved In a measure successful. He
seemed to like horses and the handl
ing of stock and farm life and got
along all O. K. He stayed there until
he was nearly or quite of ago. At that
age he begun to develop a habit of
staying out lute at night and when
they tried to reason with him, he got
miffed and loft. From that time on
he has gone here and there, working
on farms, coming home or grolng to
some of his brothers and sisters every
vear for a short visit. Was in my
home town the 1st o'f lust April and

BOLDLY WORN, LEADS TO
ARREST IN BOOZE DEAL
Artcles of laundry recently stolen
from local folk "ere found on two
men, arrested In separate caaes by lo
cal police cooperating with the sher
iff's office late Friday.. One of the
victims of the sleuthing ability of lo
cal officers also faces a charge of hav
ing liquor in his possession unlawful
M. Madden, who had something re
sembling whiskey on him -when ar
rested by Officer Charley Myers and
Deputy Sheriff Glenn Bushee, also
waa found to be wearing a shirt stolen
from the apartment of X. D. Stvear-
Ingen. The Bhirt bore not only the
laundry mark but also the embroider
ed Initials of the owner. Madden will
be tried In police court at 4 o'clock
today on the liquor charge and will
then be turned over to the sheriff to
be held for larceny. Ilther articles of
aundry are alleged to have been trac
ed to his possession.
Herman Roheer, charged also with
having appropriated laundry, was ar
rested by Deputy Bushee and Chief of
Police Al Roberta last evening. He
was turned over to the sheriff on a
larceny charge. As yet the two men
have not been connected. The infor
mation against Roheer came through
local laundry which traced down
material ho sent in, bearing the mark

Now about the crime that he has
confessed of committing here. That It
was foul, uncalled for deal, no one Is
more conscious of it than I am. And
God knows It uy any power of mine,
could restore the life taken I would
gladly do so and my heart goes out In
sympathy for the bereaved- wife and
family and my prayer has constantly
been that Ood In his infinite love and
mercy would comfort, sustain and up
hold them In this awful hour of trial.
I do not maintain that the boy is inno
cent of this foul deed because of his
mental condition, for undoubtedly hei
knows right from wrong and therefore
ought to be punished. Hut I do say
that because of his weakened mental
ity he did not understand the enor
mity of the crlmo he committed, nor
the awful punishment It involved when
ho plead guilty to the charge. I there
fore ask the people of this city and
commonwealth to use sober judgment
before you snuff out that ltfo.
Don't let your sympathy for mo en
