RUNAWAY BOY COLONY GROWS.
Leslie Clem of Arkansas Is Latest Recruit at Detention Home.
To the growing colony of runaway boys at the Detention home was added yesterday Leslie Clem of Branch, Ark. Leslie, although but 16 years old, is a well developed type of what is known in some localities as a "hill billy." His father, Street Clem, conducts a restaurant at Branch and obtained for Leslie a job on a farm in Arkansas at $7.50 a month, "board and keep." The work wasn't so bad, but Leslie allowed the "keep" wasn't to his liking.
Railroad men took Leslie to the Detention home, where he is awaiting word from his father. In the meantime Leslie is entertaining the other runaway boys with tales of the Ozarks, told in his inimitable drawl.
