Tramps Arrested and Doing Hard Time!

Three tramps, Tom and Bill Kelly and Bill Lindsay were picked up and arrested on Tuesday by Marshal Homrnel. They Were promptly put into the Clark County jail by Police Justice Tolford. The Kellys will be in jail for 30 days and Lindsay will have to stay for 25 days. The reason for the difference in days is because Lindsay belongs to the 25-day class. They will do hard labor without any card playing, newspapers to read nor tobacco to smoke or chew. This will make them leave town when they get out.
