Sheriff Wafer authorizes us to call the attention of persons who frequent the swimming and bathing places in Sand creek near this city, that the public exposition of persons in their nakedness during the day time and upon the public highways, as for instance at the bridge crossings and the dam, is a criminal offense, punishable by a heavy fine and imprisonment, and if continued in that he will be under the unpleasant necessity of arresting the perpetrators.  You must wait until dark, and until the women can’t see you, when it will be all right.  The Newton Kansan, Newton Kansas.  Thursday, July 5, 1883.  Page 3.
