She Is Alleged to Have Attacked Boy
Who Was Throwing Corncobs
at Trespassing
[Special to The Herald.]
REDONDO BEACH, Jan. 29.—Mrs.
Anna Nagy of Ihis city is out on $500
bond tonight, after being arraigned to
day on the charge of attempted as
sault with a deadly weapon. Tho com
plaint against Mrs. Nagy was made
by Mrs. G. 10. Allen, and she charges
Mrs. Nagy with chasing bar young
son, Adrian Conn, for some distance
with an ax.
The Nagy and Allen families reside
next door to each other In the Redon

city. Mrs. Nagy owns a line milch
COW, and it was because of the cow
that tho arrest Of the owner came
about this morning. The affair prac
tically amounts to a neighborhood
squabble, which will probably see Its
culmination in the trial of Nagy
before Justice of the Peace L. F. Wells
next Wednesday.
The cow was staked out upon the
lot of Mrs. Nagy this morning. Ac
cording to Mrs. Allen, tho rope was
too long and the animal trespassed
upon her lot. Young Conn thereupon
attempted to drive tho cow on to lta
own side of the neighborly boundary
line, hurling corncobs at the bovine to
accelerate her movements. Mrs. Nagy,
viewing the pelting of the source of
the family mill* supply from a pantry
window, hastened out and, seizing an
ax, tried to wreak revenge upon the
boy, according to Mrs. Allen. The
latter, however, escaped her after an
exciting chase, in which he *aid ha
was badly frightened.
It is said that the Nagya and Aliens
have not got along in the past few
weeks as good neighbors should, and
consequently tbero is DO love lost be
tween them. The police say that*fre
quently family quarrels in this section
of the city are brought to their at

of them has ever approached such
serious consequences as this between
