There are many thoughtless boys
in our town who deliberately mark
their names or initials in fiesh cement
walks, on newly painted houses or on

caught in the act there will be, an ex

a nuisance. When Mr. Peterson of

with his new auto, some boy scratched
his initials in the bright varnish on the
back of the machine, and they can
never be removed until a fresh coat of
paint and varnish is applied. --.Superior
