Paper: Anamosa Eureka (Anamosa, Iowa)
How to Settle a Difficulty- S. B. Coleman, Constable at Fairview, and Frank Arnold of the same place, had a quarrel over an alleged slanderous publication written by the former, and last Friday evening, while proceeding homeward from Anamosa, they settled the trouble, or agreed to settle it , by a resort to the :manly art.” The affair took place on the “big hill,” in the presence of two witnesses, and Mr. Coleman was badly used up, being carried home in an almost insensible condition. It is stated that his nose id broken, and that he is or was confined to his house for several days. His friend, we hear, claim that Arnold used a stone, but the latter denies it. From what we have been able to learn, the affair, from beginning to end, was in no way creditable to either party.
