BEDFORD FORGIVES ERRING YOUTH
Charles Mitchell, aged 16, stole a suit of clothes from a room in a boarding house at Bedford and came to Bloomington in a Pullman box car last Tuesday night. He was found occupying a lower berth when he was pulled by Policeman Hinkle who returned his prisoner to Bedford. The boy had the clothes on over his old ones, and the suit looked as if it might fit Squire Iseminger. The youthful culprit was told to "git" and reform, and he went to Mitchell to live under the high moral influence of that town in hopes that he may grow up to be a better man and someday become a member of the city council.
