Misuse Of B-B Guns Brings Sharp Warning Fenton—Local boys owning BB guns were warned sometime ago in regard to misusing the guns. It seemed as though the warning helped for a short time, but now again complaints are being turned in. Bulbs have been shot from the street lights and even windows in homes have been damaged' The citizens of Fenton are certainly not wanting to bring the law down on the boys of town, but it has come to the place that if the firing of the guns within the town of Fenton is not stopped, drastic steps axe going to be taken. Parents with boys owning BB guns are asked to please help avoid any unnecessary steps that may have to be iaken. CARD OF THANKS I wish to thank all my friends and relatives for the letters, cards and gifts sent to me during my recent illness. Your thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated. \\\* Ella Waite. >.- Rural Mail Box Week Observed Fentofl—The Pbst Office Department has designated the week beginning with the third Monday of May of each year as Rural Mail Box Improvement Week.
