shooting huge fire treend Roman candles some of andnlght put a persons eyes out c w off a hand A year ago on Years a young man was shot t killed In Paducah by someone ho had abused the privilege of making a noise by shooting a pls itol loaded with bullets The only way to eliminate the danger and annoyance Is to do away with the way Christmas has been celebrated here jn the past There Is not a lady who went Chopping last week who will v not heartily Indorse this Almost a week ago the boys who of course F cant help It and must be boys be r gan the danger and din They do < riot know better and It Is tun to them but the public peace convo i nience and safety are more or should be more than merely allowing the < youngsters to have a good time and If they dont know better they should be taught Towards tho approach ol Christmas It became almost Impossible to pass along our main streets or go through tho shopping district without being In constant dread of having a fire cracker or torpedo ex plode beneath ones feet or In ones face The boys do not know any f better but they should bo shown The youth and grown men who even went so tar asto throw the fireworks Into peoples faces ought to be fined or sent to Jail Tho Lexington Herald always In teresting and sensible says along this line l t t5The pitiable > accident which hap 7 pened to a young girl Saturday night z J t 1i lIis attracted more attention to the 0 outragemrq custom of celebrating i 1f Christmas by setting off every sort of fireworks In the crowded streets of 1the city than has eer been attracted i J 41 before It often need some such terrible object lesson to make us realIze that something which has been tolerated for years should bemust be stopped besloppedThere There is no Justifiable excuse for the custom which resulted in the terrific Injury to that young girl Mixed with the sympathy amid pity which every human feels for her If a sense of outrage and Indignation at the criminal carelessness of the person who threw the firecracker which blinded her and at every other manor boy who Indulged his selfish desire to make himself conspicuous and obnoxious by setting off fireworks on the streets during the holidays It may be unjust and yet It It natural that every one who Is guilty of any act similar to the one which made that poor girl spend her Christmas In darkness which turned her bright future to gloom should re celvo some oftllo condemnation which he through whose act her blindness came deserves Jt is dim cult to write with proper restraint of the scenes which were enacted on the streets of Lexington Saturday night and which were repetitions of similar scenes on every Christmas Eve for years Firecrackers torpedoes Roman candles every sort ot fireworks that could be used to make a noise were In evidence It was not boys only or mainly who were guilty halfgrown and full womenback grown men and women black and white were doing all In their power to make the night hideous and the streets unsafe It Is marvelous that only I one serious accident happened I that only one person suffered an irreparable I Injury If there Is an overpowering desire of any large number of people to make a noise at Christmas time they ought to be put together out In an > open field and let to make what noise they want shoot giant firecrackers orpedoes Roman candles sky rockets or anything else If they hurt themselves or each other it can jo borne by the community much better than If they blot out the light from some sweet Innocent girl going from a hard days work to the home of which she was the Joy and light If there must be such a celebration next Christmas let all those who desire to take part In It be confined In the potters field for the twenty four hours before Christmas and Indulge their desire to make a noise to their hearts content An < T also let every one who hoots a firecrack er or torpedo or any ftietedrl ol fireworks off down town bo sent te the rock pile for thirty days It Is I Impossible to estimate the loss In 1 mere dollars and cents which the merchants of Lexington Buffet through the barbarous custom The country people hardly dare come tc town do not dare come for several I days before Christmas unless the y can come on the trim or have an I old perfectly gentle horse to drive No woman whose dally labor for dally wage does not necessitate her beIng out after dark dares bo on the street after G oclock for the last few days before Christmas Christmas I Eve the stores had as well be closed There are ordinances enough already to stop the habit It they are I enforcedIf the police force will arrest the first man who sets off any P sort of fireworks down town and the police Judge will Impose the limIt of fine and Imprisonment on hand l m on every other who Is guilty But It would be well to have one B other ordinance one prohibiting the sale of fireworks of any sort making It an offense punishable bj fine and Imprisonment for any onto e offer for sale any fireworks of any descriptions and wo hope that the general council will pass such an ordinance at once while the memory of this Christmas Is fresh In the minds of every citizen Tho Herald has sounded a timely warning Stop this sacrilege of the most sacred holiday In our calendar before some of our own citizens are maimed or blinded for life or killed If such a thing should happen the whole people would rise In their might and demand a Christmas without flreworlts but why wait Why not do it now and save someono nn awful misfortune or an intimeiy death T deathAside Aside from the danger these fireworks are a wanton waste Hundreds of dollars worth fire exploded yearly In every town and city to gratify a savage taste t for noise and glitter The money spent In fire worka In Paducah every year would bring gladness to every poor unfortunate In I town were It spent for something good and useful Instead of to waste In somke fire and nblse o New of
