Mrs. Katherine Carrigan of 6 North Main St., Auburn, owns a little pup dog. The little pup dog wanted some deviled ham possessed by the year-old baby of George McNally who lives next door, and because baby refused to give it up grabbed her by the nose. Mr. McNally sought the pup with an axe, was confronted by Mrs. Carrigan who pelted him with bricks, he in turn grabbed the overwrought lady to prevent further concussion between the bricks and his anatomy. Mrs. Carrigan had him arrested for assault.

Such is the brief but peppery synopsis of events that brought the neighborhood felicity of North Main Street up standing with a jilt Thursday and resulted in the airing of the important events related before Judge Manser’s court Friday.

After observing that there was blame on both sides, Judge Manser stated that he should not enter a verdict of guilty against McNally, but would continue this case for further hearing.
