Six well-dressed youths were summoned at Huddersfield to-day for disorderly conduct in Beaumont Park on a Sunday afternoon.

The police alleged that the youths jostled each other about, sang rag-time songs, and wound up with a hymn.

Mr. Eaton Smith, for the defendants, said they had just come from a Sunday school and were returning home to tea. All that they were guilty of was a little exuberance.

The boys were ordered to pay the costs, and one of them, who had whipped off a flower in "taking a stroke at golf," 3s. to pay. They were all cautioned.
