As a rule, the celebrator were care ful in their plans although now and then they overstepped, as they did last night in shooting skyrockets slong the pavement on Main street, much to the imminent danger of pedestrians and oc cupants of vehicle and to the possible damage to property. Several times large skyrockets were set off on a hon zontal plane rather than perpendicular and the missiles went with great veloe ity. for hundreds of feet. ro far a known, no persons were injured by the rockets, but one missile, ricochetting. broke a plate glass window in the store of C, W.
