"The other morning, says an exchange, at Yost’s hotel, Doylestown a guest stepped on the veranda of the second story, all in his night shirt clad, and pointing a revolver at a cigar store opposite pulled the trigger. The ball struck the leg of a chair upon which Samuel Hutchings was sitting. The stranger disappeared from the hotel before a warrant could be procured. This sounds rather snakey."
