Citizens of Prosperity Meet an Armed Foe
in the Woods.
s Sunday morning Messrs. B. B.
t Hair, G. A. Wofford and Matthew
f Boozer had quite an unusual expe
rience in the woods on the outskirts
1 of Prosperity.
They were out for a morning's
walk and when they arrived on the
edge of a swampy place at the foot
of a hill they observed a man stand
ing within a hundred or hundred
and fifty yards of them. The man
had on a long overcoat reaching al
most to his feet, and as soon as he
saw the above mentioned gentle
men approaching he pulled from
under his coat what appeared to be
a Winchester rifle or i6 shooter,
and stepped behind an obstruction.
As -the men attempted to walk to
ward him, he motioned to them to
go back, at the same time raising
his gun in position to fire.
The gentlemen leisurely retraced
their steps and wetit back to town
and nothing further has been heard
frcm the stranger.
It is up to Judge Hair to now ex
plain the manoeuveres of the strange
