Crazy Man Had a Gun

Pete Anderson Taken in by Police – Evidently Too Much Booze

Aroused by the news that a crazy man was trying the old practice; usually confined to the west of shooting up the town in the vicinity of Bobtown, two officers made a hurry-up visit to that district this morning. One Pete Anderson was found with a gun in his hand shooting it in the air and ground and wildly yelling, while the people near the vicinity hid in their houses. Anderson was taken to town and placed in jail. It is thought that is it only a case of too much booze and that a couple of day’s (sic) confinement in jail will make him as sane as ever again.
