The Shelby Democrat
Lewis Whalen, who stole a pair of suspenders and a pair of socks from
a Fairland store on August 1st, plead guilty to larceny last week and was given
one year in the pen, fined $1 and disfranchised for a year. The value of
the articles taken was estimated at the enormous sum of one dollar.
