Spring Brings Best Out of the Worst A'n, spring —what you do to people, even such liard-noscd guys as would take an 11-yenr-oltl sliucsliinc hoy's oJl- lit away from him. II was "last winter" when little Joseph Hornino was working Into in Chicago, a city which :tt times ha.s iiiolh- cictl some rather unsocial characters. Joe wasn't doing so good, KO when ho saw three men come out of a Invent he beat it across the street to ask them about a shine. Now perhaps Hie three men had been too long in the tavern, or maybe they were just that kind of men, but anyhow they pushed Joseph in the face, grabbed his shine outfit, jumped in a car anil departed the .scene, laughing loudly at their deed. It was the only outfit Joseph h:td and he of course was mighty iinhiippy. He went home and told his dad. His dad told the police. The police told the reporters. The reporters told Chicago. And pretty soon the whole town was just as indignant as Joseph Boniiuo. But the llrst lush days of spring came on. Spring brings many things to many people. To one of the men who swiped Joseph Bornino's shine outfit it brought remorse. He walked into a neighborhood police station and confessed the crime. He called himself a bum and-said that he was .xoi'i'y about the way he acted. He 1 told !,he police where they could find his accomplices. The police got them. One of the men's wives came leading her husband to the station. It may have been spring's beneficent effects, or again if may have been that the culprits were just that kind of men, but they were awfully sorry also. The desk sergeant had Joseph Bor- m'no drop around. Josepii was kind of scam), but lie identified the men. Then the sergeant asked Joseph what ' lie thought they ought to do with them. Joseph didn't know. The sergeant said maybe Joseph would like for them to buy him the classiest shine outfit to be found in Chicago. Joseph said (hat wouldn't be necessary. Folks around town had already sent hj, n three outfits on account of that story in the newspapers. Finally Joseph a-kcd the sergeant if lnATIIEVIL.LE '(ARK.)'

He had been pretty sore at them but now they were sorry and aiixioiw fo reform and bew'de.s spring wao in the sergeant. Ho told them all to go home. So that i:i a simple little story and perhaps remarkable only for the fact (hat it probably couldn't have happened except during tho first /"ragianl day.s of spring.
