moved mi Night
Ravaging of a garden of tulips
at the home of H. E. Leavenworth,
1028 South 12 street last week,
the latest work of vandals in. the
depot district, was reported to po
lice officers yesterday. About
fifty blooms were stripped from
the plants Friday, and on' Sunday
night every bloom in the garden
- Tlower thieves recently entered
the garden at the home of Mabel
Currie and Gertrude Chamberlain.
1115 Waller street, .and pilfered
a large number of flowers, mutil
ating the garden In the process.
. The Imprint of a boy's shoe was
found in the Leavenworth gar
den. This leads Kim to believe
that the robbery may be the work
of a lQ-y ear-old boy who. has
caused trouble in that district be
fore. Mail boxes have been tam
pered with, it is said, and on one
occasion a garage was entered and
a number of tools taken.
Mrs. Myra L. Shanks, police
matron, is investigating the case.
She believes that a small gang of
boys in that section are causing
the trouble, and expects to get
some definite clue soon. -
