Lads Become Drunk
On Bootleg Whiskey

November 1910--With Coshocton still reeling from the Halloween riots, another surprise waited for frazzled parents.

Two ten year olds, Clifford Wolfe and Moses Fisher, were found passed out drunk in a downtown alley. The resourceful boys watched a man hide a bottle of whiskey beneath a board. Later, they helped themselves to the bootleg whiskey. After choking down the potent brew, the boys found themselves unable to walk and fell asleep. A neighbor lady found the boys and helped them home. Source: Coshocton Times
