USE OF SLINGSHOTS WILL BE STOPPED BY POLICE DEPARTMENT
Four boys made their first visit to the interior of the city jail this morning for the reckless use of slingshots in the city limits.
The police issue the warning that children using slingshots will be picked up and placed in jail as the four were this morning.
Youths of the city have been causing considerable annoyance, with the slingshots lately and the practice is to be stopped immediately, according to the police. A few days ago a woman was hit on the cheek and cut and bruised by a stone shot by a boy. Windows of residences and store buildings have also suffered.
