  • TWO BOYS, Harley Nelson and Harry Peterson, a row boat with a sail, Grand Traverse Bay, and a high wind, were subjects of rather startling stories in town today. The boys left for Leland at 8:30 last night and ended up staying on the Island overnight. The wind was still high the next morning so they came home on the Fannie Rose. Considerable anxiety abounded during their absence.
  • PASSERBYS on Front Street this morning, seeing the large plate glass window of L.M. Bennett’s jewelry store broken, were of the opinion that someone had tried to steal the contents of the window display. But nothing was taken and it is now thought that a group of young men from Grand Rapids seen standing there, maliciously did the damage before boarding their train home.
  • Jesse Roberts, the nineteen year old son of Mrs. Dora Roberts of North Cedar Street, was struck in the face by an oar wielded by Mathies Gildarski. His left nasal bone was fractured and a cut required a stitch. Mr. Gildarski heard some boys were bothering his children out on the Bay, and, not in control of his quick temper, took off after them, catching Roberts with an oar. A Physician said the injury could have been a lot worse. A warrant is out for Gildarski’s arrest.
