Looking Back to 1916: "Dekalb's Youthful Banditry" Borrow Stuff

From the February 24, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

"DeKalb's youthful banditry pulled another one today.  The case today is not as serious as some of the others and has a funny side as well as a serious one.  Mr. Ulrich today reported to the police that a hand cart belonging to him was missing and asked the help of officers to find it.

"Inside half an hour an officer found it propelled by a couple of youngsters and filled with copper wire belonging to the telephone company.  The lads were apparently innocent of wrongdoing and said that they had just 'borrowed' the cart.  When asked by police they also said that they had 'borrowed' the wire as well."
