Some results of messenger and newsboy work. For nine years this sixteen year old boy has been newsboy and messenger for drug stores and telegraph companies. He was recently brought before the Judge of the Juvenile Court for incorrigibility at home. Is now out on parole, and was working again for drug company when he got a job carrying grips in the Union Depot. He is on the job from 6:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. (seventeen hours a day) for seven days in the week. His mother and the judge think he uses cocaine, and yet they let him put in these long hours every day. He told me There ain't a house in 'The Acre' (Red Light) that I ain't been in. At the drug store, all my deliveries were down there. Says he makes from $15.00 to $18.00 a week. Eugene Dalton. Location: Fort Worth, Texas.
