A cautionary tale for those of you up to tomfoolery this All Hallow's Eve: just west of Fargo, Farmer Beaton's kids were shot for being annoying, on Halloween 1907. Seems they were up to no good in 1906, so the next year the subject of their torment was having none of it. The gun was loaded with birdshot, nothing particularly deadly, but the point struck home, so to speak. Here's a sign of the times: the kids made the news, their father was named, but the guy firing his gun into the darkness at percieved tresspassers is neither named, nor did this seem to be an issue for the sheriff.
