Instant Justice

100 years ago

At noon Jan. 16, 1912, a drunken man from The Glen, driving a willing team of horses that were doing their level best to draw a heavy lead of wood up Ridge Street hill in Warrensburgh, was pounding them with a big whip because they couldn’t do it. At the same time he was disgusting passers-by with a stream of horrible profanity. He was given a dose of his own medicine when Elliot Church took the whip away from him and gave his a vigorous thrashing with it. The act was heartily approved of by those who witnessed it.
