Hideous Boys of 1912

“The observance of Hallowe’en has greatly degenerated of recent years. Once it was quietly observed by dances and social gatherings where the young people played quiet, innocent games. Now the night is given over to the pranks of mischief-loving boys, who make the occasion hideous with their noises and do a lot of wanton destruction of property. It is hoped by our quiet-loving citizens that the special police will be able to curtail this annual nuisance next Thursday night.”

— “The Rambler” Skaneateles Free Press October 25, 1912
