ASHLAND AND VICINITY
IRRIGATION FEATURES were at high tide last Thursday night and a good share of Friday. Jupiter Pluvius was chairman of the committee on precipitation. The wind Thursday night blew hot air from the east and reminded one that the equinox was arranging a readjustment meteorologically. The official downpour was over an inch. As a result, plows are scurrying hither and yon, making up for lost time.
AS A RESULT of too much airgun target practice, Artro Swingle, son of Frank Swingle, received a dumdum pellet in the face last Saturday, dangerously near the left eye. The lad is 9 years old. He was taken to the hospital for treatment. The shot is supposed to have come from a near line of trenches on Bush Street, protecting a masked battery where Boy Scouts have been maneuvering in light artillery tactics extensively of late.
