An intoxicated man caused annoyance at the French Italian Restaurant Monday morning and after he was ejected several times he returned, finally Mr. Locatelli seized a seltzer bottle and gave the man a good drenching. The fellow used some pretty rough language and as many ladies were passing, an Argus man rang in the police call and in a jiffy Officer Bert Masten was on the scene, escorting the troublemaker to the lockup where he had ample time to dry out and cool off.
Don’t be Mr. and Mrs. Behindhand. Whatever you have to do, get it off your chest and have it over with. Do it on time. This applies especially to Christmas shopping. Procrastination causes trouble in every line but the trouble multiplies for the procrastinator in Christmas shopping. A good deed is increased in power if done promptly. Do Your Christmas Shopping now. Be a Beforehand and you will be popular.
