Ho went to his friend. Willie Haas,
of this city, also 17 years old, and told
hlm all about It. The explanation was
so simple that Willie readily fell In with
Frank's plans.
Frank, tho motion-picture operator, had
his kit of tools with him. He took out
a long chisel, used it as he had seen
burglars In, the movies using a jimmy
and pried open the front door. Silently
the two lads crept Into the cafe at
Clementon Park, 15 nilles from Camden.
Frank went to work on the cash drawer
with a chisel.
One thing the pantomime of the motion
pictures had not taught the boy, and that
was to muffle the steel with which he
worked. His chisel came In sharp con
tact several times with the metal cash
drawer, and the noise awoke the pro
prietor. The latter produced a revolver
and the burglary was suddenly halted by
shots whizzing over the heads of the
youthful Intruders.
Neither boy knew much about tb town
at that time. They fled precipitately and
without system. After running a few
blocks they ran into the arms of a wily
bfueeoat and were locked up. Today they
appeared before Judge Boyle, and Smith.

Japan and China. At any late, the situation between Japan nnd China la very
