RUNS AMUCK

Thursday night Paddy Patterson Jr., who lives in East Bonne Terre, tanked up rather freely and ran amuck in Bogytown.

Paddy came loaded, a long dirk knife and a big pistol being his ornaments. The clothes worn by one Huitt didn't suit Paddy, so he proceeded to cut them off. At the Rock Saloon he started in to make things lively, when John Reyburn, the bartender, lammed Paddy over the head with a poker, the crowd relieved Paddy of his weapons, and chased him out in the street, where he entertained passersby with declarations of what he could or would do.
