What la understood to have been
town hoodlums, tore away the figure
of tbe fountain at the entrance to the
college grounds Monday night, and at
last accounts tbe missing piece had
not been located. They also tore
apart tbe stone seat and moved a por
tion of It to a spot several yards away.
Both the fountain and- the seat were
placed on the ground by graduating
classes, and Interferences with them,
even as a Halloween prank are excuse-
less and despicable. This Halloween
business- is a fraud anyway; and It
ought to be dealt with as severely as
the law will permit. Tbe fountain and
seat should be restored by them, or
tbe guilty parties ought to be sent to
the penitentiary, It that be possible,
no matter whose sons they may be. :
