VANDALS RAID LOTS
AT THE CEMETERY
Flowers and Flants Tlaced Thue by
Kehvivcs and Friend Aie Carried
Away by Parties Unknowa.
Some person or persons are report
ed to have visited Oak Hill cemetery
a few evenings ago and carried away
whole armloads of flowers and plants
which had been planted on the lots
and graves in that city of the silent
by the friends and relatives of those
who are buried there. The matter
was reporter to Councilman John C.
Krittain. chairman of the cemetery
committee of the council and he at
ence started the machinery of the
law in motion to attempt to discover
the identity of the parties who would
stoop to such a low and debasing
;ct. and if they are discovered thty
will be prosecuted to the fullest ex
tent of the law and an example made
of them by the city authorities.
There is no crime that is quite as
mean as this act of taking from the
last resting- places of the dead tho
flowers that loving hand: have
planted there with care that their
fresh beauty might make more at
tractive the spot where the loved
ones sleep and anyone who would
thus boldly enter the cemetery and
carry away the plants and flowers is
not deserving of very much sympa
thy. The motive that would cause the
committing of an act of this kind is
hard to find as the plants are of no
great financial value to anyone and
ccnhl easily be secured by anyone
without the necessity of robbing the
lots of the cemetery of their floral
