For some time A. W. Hallenbake has had somewhat against "Zack"
and has been chewing the rag on street corners and elsewhere, until
Thursday evening he got so hilarious that Stump lost his equilibrium
proceeded to take Anthony by the back of the neck and apply a number 9
boot. This made the said Hallenbake very indignant and he grabed
up a clod which he threw with great force and violence at Stump's
but the aim was a little too high and it only knocked Stump's new
hat off and in the dust. This in turn made Stump also very
and he made a regular Sullivan rush at Hallenbake, using his foot,
landed considerably below the waistband of Hallenbake's breeches
After this Hallenbake made haste and tarried not and for about fifty
no man ever saw a keener race between two guineas than was had between
the two combatants, Hallenbake seeming to have the greatest incentive
do his level best soon distanced his pursuer, but declared he was not
to run from Stump. Order has again been restored and everything
moving along as though nothing had happened.
