LOCAL BOYS GET IN TROUBLE WITH CIRCUS MEN
Report That They Got a Severe Beating
Camp Fire Girls Return from Camp Greatly Benefited
Water System Contractors’ Hard Luck.
MILLTOWN, Aug. 18.-Two local youths meddled around the Thompkins Wild West circus tents around three o’clock Sunday morning, and were accosted by members of the show. They had a debate which culminated in a severe beating with a rawhide, aroused the Judge from his slumbers, called a cop and then after being unable to identify their assail- ant had to pay the costs themselves. At least that is the way the story goes. It was said that after the war- rant was issued the party making the charge together with a local officer,. brought one of the showmen to the Judge’s office but he claimed he was not the man who had administered the beating, and owing to their in- ability to identify the person the case was dismissed and the accusers. had to pay.

Were Going Sailing.
Jack Chevalier, a popular Public service employee, of the local power house, was scheduled to take a party of trolleymen for a sail down to South Beach yesterday but when the merry party reacted Sayreville they found the tide had gone out Chevalier’s boat was stuck in mud. “Wait until the tide comes in boys,” said the owner of the boat. and the boys did wait, and waited. and then some more and at last found that the tide, at high water. was not high enough to float the ship. Finally, disgusted over the long wait but determined to get to a beach other than such as offered at Sayreville the trolleymen boarded a trolley car and journeyed to Seldler’s Beach for a shore dinner. They had created enormous appetites waiting for the rising tide.
