'Tuesday night some youngsters of
-town caused considerable trouble for
Postmaster Merwin. It is not likely
that they knew how serious might be
the result if the postmaster were to do
" his duty and punish the youngsters
who did the mischief. Among other
things they emptied the ink wells out
in the letter drop, and when the office
was opened Wednesday morning Miss
Jones was not able to discern the ad
dresses on the letters when she came
to make up the mail. Mr. Merwin
desires that the guilty parties take
warning as such conduct will not bear
repeating without being followed up
and reported to the postoffice author
ities. Because of the big heart of the
postmaster these boys will not be pun
ished That they could be found out
there is no question.
