arrested three young men for
reckless driving and being too
boisterous. They were in a bug-
gy and had been driving very
recklessly over the city shooting
off a pistol and talking loud at
intervals. When arrested a pis-
was found on the buggy seat.
While in the city bastile they
tore up the closet apparatus. All

guilty for carrying a pistol and a
fine was entered against him of
$45. The other two were fined
$20 and $14 respectively. Mar-

ble state of things when a bevy of
youngsters think that they can
drive recklessly over the city
shooting and shouting curses at
the midnight hour. Todd will
