100 Years ago in Warren: Baseball, foxes and a young thief

Posted

Taken from the pages of the Warren and Barrington Gazette this week in May 1921:

Warren comes from behind

It looked like a shut out for Warren Sunday, when the Revere Rubber Co. with Cooney in the pitchers box played on Jamiel Park. Only two hits were secured off the veteran pitcher and not a run scored during the first six innings. In the seventh however things began to brighten perceptibly and Warren because of Cooney's weakening brought three runs across the rubber. These were scored on three hits, a sacrifice fly by Silvia and two errors. There was no scoring in the eighth, but in the ninth Warren got three more, due to errors on the part of Cooney and Wilde. These errors together with a sacrifice by Simister gave Warren the extra runs needed to win the game, the final score being six to five in favor of Warren.

There was a good crowd out to the game and the Warren fans are well pleased with the showing made thus far by the boys wearing the Warren uniform.

Foxes on parade

Fred H. Brown, warden at the town farm, brought a baby fox into town Monday morning and exhibited as a part of his find on the farm Sunday. Warden Brown had seen traces of foxes about the place for several weeks and decided to find their lair. He with a party of friends went to work Sunday and when they had finished their work — only eleven holes having to be dug, that's all — they found six baby foxes. Feathers and other indications of raids on henhouses were also found.

Good riddance

A good (?) boy to be rid of, was the way the police felt concerning George Marcellina, a 15 years old boy, who was before the session of the Juvenile Court Thursday and sentenced to the Sockanosset school until he is of age. The boy was taken into custody a week ago, charged with the theft fo money, taken from a trunk belonged to Albano Serra, baker, who lived on Water street, where the boy also lived. Serra reported his loss to the Warren police, who were not long in locating Marcellina, who it is alleged confessed to the theft, after some interrogating. The boy, it is stated, told the police that he unscrewed the lock on the trunk, took out some money,  put the lock back on and left the trunk apparently undisturbed. Serra, who said he had about $90 in the trunk, went to get some of it recently, and found some missing. According to the boy, the first time he visited the trunk was April 27, when he removed $5. He also paid visits on the three following days, taking a small sum, until he finally had $40 in his possession. A week ago Thursday, when he was before the court he was allowed to go, in order that the police might investigate. This they did and found that he had a record which was about the limit for a boy of his age.

Finding out that he came to Warren on March 12 of this year, Probation Officer Brady traced back and found that the boy was on parole from the Lyman school in Westboro, Mass., from which he had been released a month previous to coming here.
