And I thought juvenile knife crime was a modern phenomenon. Surprising, I don't remember hearing anything of it at the time.

A knife is, and always has been, the easiest lethal weapon for both young and old to acquire and conceal on their person, and stabbing certainly isn't a new phenomenon - Et tu Brute :wink: ?

Scotland, thankfully, isn't currently experiencing the widespread teenage murders being reported south of the border.

TRINITY CHURCH, SALTCOATS

On Monday night the annual congregational meeting was held, when there was a large attendance – Rev. J. D. Taylor presiding.

The chairman’s statement showed that the church was in a healthy state, the membership increasing, and clear of debt.

Excellent addresses were given by Rev. A. G. Fleming, Paisley; and Rev. R. M. Adamson, Ardrossan. The choir sang anthems, and Mrs Kerr, organist, contributed several solos on the organ, which were much enjoyed.
