HOLD-UP NEAR TRAPPE
While driving near Trappe on Sunday evening, about ten o'clock, the team occupied by Misses Della and Stella WILE, of Norristown, and escorts was held up. The man who grabbed one of the horses bridle was thwarted in his purpose by the action of the driver, who by vigorously using his whip, caused the horses to dash forward and escape the highwayman. The young ladies have not fully recovered from the shock caused by their narrow escape.
