Another dispatch from the past

Here's another blurb from the archives for your enjoyment.

Toronto Daily Mail, April 21, 1879

Parkdale News

The former, it appears, had filled themselves full of whiskey procured in an unlicensed tavern here, and in this condition attacked, without cause, the residents. The rowdies, after being thoroughly pummelled with walking sticks in the hands of their opponents, were compelled to make a hasty retreat eastward.
