Thread Name: Come to taw?
Subject: RE: Come to taw?
(5) October 2, 1890 - A man from the country became very obstreperous on the Square on Monday afternoon, an overdose of corn liquor being the apparent cause of his trouble, and it took two custodians of the peace to hold him down. A friend of his drove out of town a few moments afterwards, whipping his mule in great fashion, and hurling defiance at the police. He too was promptly captured, however, by Policeman Dargan, after an exciting chase, and "brought to taw". By these little incidents the coffers of the town were nicely replenished on Tuesday morning.
