    The newspaper boy

    Billy is fourteen years old and in the ninth grade . He has a part time job which gets him up every morning at five o'clock . He is a newspaper boy . Every morning, Billy leaves his house at 5: 15 to go to the corner where the newspapers are . The newspapers were delivered to the corner by the truck at midnight . He always takes a wagon to carry them.

     In winter it is still dark when he gets up , but during the rest of the year it is day light  . Billy must deliver the newspapers to the houses of people on his route in all kinds of weather . His customers think he does a good job and sometimes they tip him  .

    Billy earns about 70$ per month . And he is saving some money to go to college . He spends the rest on records and clothes . Once a month , he has to collect money from his customers . Because many of them work during the day , Billy has to collect the money at night . Sometimes when Billy is sick , his older brother has to deliver the newspapers .

    Billy has seventy customers now ,but he hopes to get more soon . Some day, if he gets many more customers , Billy might win a prize for being an outstanding  newspaper boy . He wants to win a trip to Europe , but he will be happy if he wins a new bicycle .
