Burned Off

A sensation has been created at Harold{sp} by a land agent named Bell assaulting Frank Haddock, who was with his aunt seeking a retraction from Bell of alleged slanderous statements of the latter regarding Miss Haddock, sister of Frank. Bell is charged with boasting of favors received from Miss Haddock, and with having given further semblance of truth to his boasts by having dressed in woman's garb, and in that guise entered his own office at night, causing people to believe that Miss Haddock was his visitor. Bell claims it is a case of blackmail.
