Police Juror Hamilton informs us that while he with some other parties were passing the Farmerville academy Monday morning in a wagon, a thoughtless boy scared the mules they were driving, causing the animals to run away. Some of the occupants jumped from the vehicle, while others “faced the music” until the wagon was upset. The affair ended in a few bruises to the occupants and a broken vehicle, caused by the thoughtlessness of the lad. Parent should caution their children against such mischief.
