Shooting Affray


Miss Ethel M. Hanson, aged 24 years, assistant postmaster at Lansford, was placed under arrest Friday by Deputy U. S. Marshal Thorwald Mostad of this city charged with embezzling $773.25. The young woman has furnished bonds to appear in federal court.

A postoffice inspector visited Lansford last week and Miss Hanson confided to her employer that the money was nearly $800 short and asked him to get the money from the bank for her at once.

The postmaster was thunderstruck and dismissed Miss Hanson immediately.

Mrs. J. L. Davis has been placed in Miss Hanson's position.

Miss Hanson, through the assistance of friends, was able to raise the amount, and it is thought that no action will be started.
