The post office at Hillsboro, Ind., was attacked, last Friday night by four drunken rowdies who had taken offense at the postmaster, with clubs and stones. The P.M. emptied his little pistol into the crowd, wounding one or two of his assailants slightly and driving them off. Three of the party have been arrested on a charge of assault with intent to kill.
Thanks Ginny A - this one is awesome - now, if I can just find out who the brave soul was :) kz
