The technique is to have flowers, taxicabs and other things which can be ordered by telephone sent to the house collect and it's been going on for weeks, Mrs. Ferre reported. But the latest maneuver -sending a load of gravel--was bit too much and Mrs. Ferre cal.'.ed the sheriff. Once, in addition to taxicabs, the pranksters also sent a wrecking car to the home.
