Round of Fist-a-cuffs Injures One in 1907


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/20/1907.

Foster H. Williams was viciously attacked by a young man by the name of Lidel Powell, of Glenville, last Wednesday evening and received very severe wounds from fist-blows.  It seems that some one had informed the police of some of Powell's misdeeds, for which he was arrested, and thinking it was Foster, he struck him a terrible blow in the mouth which knocked him senseless and cut a severe gash in his lip.  Powell was arrested and fined $36.00 and sentenced to 30 days in jail.  Fos is all right now and at work.
