Meaness Displayed in 1881
At Mountain Home, Ark., a band of mounted and armed men broke into J.A. Talbert's store, robbed the safe of several thousand dollars, set fire to the store and blew it up with gun powder. This aroused the citizens, who saved the balance of the town from burning up. The robbers escaped.
