Teen Boys

Fulton Journal
January 23, 1880

A lot of boys ranging in years from ten to eighteen are wont to make night hideous by screeching and yelling like so many idiots and hyenas, by the ringing of doorbells, by talking rudely to passers by, by running in and out of church during divine service, and disturbing the peace in diverse ways. Now the JOURNAL has been furnished with a list of their names and the authorities, also; and if they don’t stop their transgressions, the JOURNAL will publish them and the authorities prosecute them. Boys’ places are in their homes after night.
