"The Small Boy with His Gun" has given fathers, mothers, police and the poplace at large more trouble than the "the small boy" in any other capacity. In this particular locality the boy and his gun is abroad for all there is in it, and until the police recently succeeded in chasing him beyond the incorporation scarcely a bird dared to perch upon a limb of any tree within the city limits without paying the death penalty. For some time the wires of the W. U. Telegraph Co. have been extremely "cranky" and Win, Hall, who is in charge of the lines throughout the northern portion of the state, and whose duty it is to keep them in repair, came here a few days ago and soon de veloped the fact "the small boy with his gun" had taken a shot at the insulators on nearly every telegraph pole for miles in eitner direction, many of which were broken, thus causing much damage. It is only necessary to further state that the telegraph company proposes to put a stop to such acts of vandalism, and will pay $25 in each case that will lead to the conviction of a perpetrator.
