In the vicinity of 15th street and Harrison and Irving avenues, for a number of evenings past. It has be come quite the fashion for a crowd of the young boys to congregate after dark and play tick-tack on the win dows, and throw- rotten eggs and stones at the houses. Windows have been broken, paint badly scarred and dam aged, and a number of ladles have been frightened. One of the policemen Is on the lookout for the young men, and will do well to put a stop to these practices. Doubtless the boys are only out for fun, and every right-thinking man wants to see them have ail the fun possible. Hut this kind of fun Is often very btIous. Thirty years ago a lady well known to one of the fam ilies now being annoyed, was similarly ntertalned after dark and so budly frightened that she has ever since been a bed-ridden Invalid.
