Comment

" Cowardly Attack - A most brutal attack was made on two men, respectively named Hardy and Dixon, while returning from Rawdon on Saturday night last.

On their arriving near the Yeadon Toll Bar, two men sprung from the hedge side and most brutally beat them with short clubs and such were the injuries received that the man Hardy lies in an almost hopeless state.

Not the slightest clue has been obtained of the perpetrators  of this cowardly attack".
