Burford - On Thursday aft four boys who had assaulted Jim Burton on the night of Sept. 24th and cut his hand badly were tried in court. One boy was fined and the others let off ... The Editor thought the action was "a storm in a teapot." Note - The editor who had deplored theft and rowdyism three weeks before, sneered at the court action as unnecessary. In 1910 it was considered "manly" to fight and brawl in the streets and only the chicken-hearted ever took anyone to court. Even in the late 1920s, when I was a child, I witnessed a big fist fight between adult brothers on the site of the Toronto-Dominion bank and a horse-whipping of a boy in front of the Harbot-tle block east of the post office. There were other similar incidents.
