of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 7/27/1897.
John Westfall was coming from Spencer to Arnoldsburg a few days ago
with a load of goods, and before getting to Arnoldsburg was overtaken by
darkness, and in a dense woods was attacked by robbers, who cut his clothes
almost off of him. From the information we have of the matter it
was a desperate fight, but Westfall succeeded in driving his assailants
away. No clue to the perpetrators.
