KERN'S KIND HEART Saved a Boj From Prison by HU Eloquence, Then Gave the Youngster Two Dollars and Told Him to be G»od. Hon. John W. Kern, the brilliant orator and attorney of Indianapolis, who is well-known in this city, saved Charles Butcher, a Ralveston boy, from a prison sentence, then gave the lad money and told him to be good. It will be remembered that Butcher was arrested upon the charge of raising- a 25 cent postal note to 11.25 and a $1 note to $1.25, and that he sent he raised notes to Cincinnati to buy , book entitled, "Life of Pearl Jryan." Butcher was arraigned in the Jnited States court at Indianapolis Tuesday. Mr. Kern appeared for Butcher,and as it was a plain case ad- 'ised the boy to pleari guilty. Mr. £ern then entered an eloquent plea 'or mercy, relating the circumstances Q wolch the boy was reared, his lack if moral training, the hope that he night become a good citizen and the 'act that H was his first offense. The >lea struck the judge deeply and he •eleased the boy on suspended sen- ce, saying that it was the hope he would become a good citizen aad a helpful member of society that induced him to do it. The boy seemed dazed during tse judge's recital and could only nod his head occasionally. The judge told him to go, and as he started to leave the room Mr. Kern followed htm to the door and gave lim a private talking to out In the corridor. "Be a good boy," he said, "and try to become a good citizen." With that he pulled two shining silver dollars out of his pocket and placed them in the boy's hand, telling him to buy something to eat and purchase a ticket to Kokomo with :he remainder. The boy had been confined In jail for five mouths, and when brought Into court showed unmistakable evidence of poverty and hard life. Mr. Kern formerly lived at Kokoino, knew the boy's circumstances and appeared in his defense without hope of reward. A. DRAWING CA.RI) Which Might l"roTe a Success In Logansport. An up-to-date idea for increasing the attendance at the First Baptist cburca in Trenton, N. J., has been Introduced by the pastor. The announcement that in future young women ushers would conduct visitors to their seats at the Sunday morning services was made in an advertisement in the local papers more than a week ago, and on the following Sunday the church was crowded. Th« pastor was pleased with the result of t.ne collection, as all previous records dwindled almost to nothingness when compared with the amount contributed when the girls passed the baskets. The collection the first Sunday amounted to nearly f 300 and last Sunday it rose to 1450, with prospects of a steady rise at future services. ADDITIONAL ITEMS- MARIE JAXSEN In "The Nancy flanks" at the Opera House Tonight. The return engagement of Marie Jansen and Frank Tanehill, jr., at the opera house tonight promises to be a brilliant success.
