Editor Advocates Public Flogging in 1901

(11/13/2001)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 11/12/1901.

Some sneak thief entered A.W. Hollenbake's shanty boat one day last week and stole a good little sum of change from a stand drawer, during the latter's absence.  It is a pity some one cannot catch the person or persons who have been doing the pilfering lately; and if they are caught a good flogging with the culprits tied to a stake in the most public place in town, would have a tendency to instill better morals into the offenders.
