If the smart Alecks who strive to keep
up and old, but foolish, custom, would
confine their acts to innocent mischief
it might be looked upon as a jolly
amusement, but when they destroy
property it ceases to be an innocent
amusement, but becomes criminal, and
in such cases the rigors of the law
should be applied with as much force as
if tbe same acts were done on some
other occasion with malicious intent.
It being hallowe'en should be no shield
to the perpetrators of acts wherein
property ia destroyed and injured. If
at some time those who think it funny
to do another's property injury should
accidentally receive a charge of bird
shot, or rock salt, in that part of their
anatomy concealed beneatb the skirt of
their coat, it is possiole that they would
not regard the affair quite so awful
