Wellsville has long had the reputation of being the worst town in Allegany county, but as a correspondent writes, we think Richburg now goes
far ahead. Last Monday a 13-year-old boy in the Richburg school held the Professor at bay by pointing two revolvers at him and exclaiming, "Halt!
Advance one step into this room and I will blow your head off." We learned last evening that another boy, about the same age, stabbed a boy with
whom he was fighting at a school houe about a mile out of Richburg. The result in neither case was not what is called serious, but it shows what
novel reading will do for boys.
