KARL STOUDT HAD UNWELCOME GUEST
ATTORNEY VISITED BY A MIDNIGHT PROWLER WHO INSISTED ON STAYING ALL NIGHT
Atty. Karl Stoudt sat reading at his home at midnight, last Friday night, and looking up, saw a stranger open the front door and walk in. Karl was somewhat startled, not knowing the cause of the fellow's late visit. He was a big husky fellow and wore a coat that was split up the back. He made himself very much at home and appeared to be full of dope. He insisted on staying all night, saying that he was wealthy and had plenty of money to pay for his lodging. Mr. Stoudt managed to induce the fellow to go on his way, but had not learned the name of his new found friend.
