Looking Back to 1916: Not a Fair Fight

From the August 24, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

"A rather amusing feature connected with the arrest and return to Fond du Lac, of a man arrested on the charge of wife abandonment was seen by a good many around the DeKalb depot this morning.

"The man arrested was a small-sized young man, who would weigh about 125 pounds and who would not be able to resist arrest by a man of but a few pounds more weight than he.

"The officer who came down from the north after him was a man about six foot three inches in height and weighing about 325 pounds and apparently able to lick his weight in wild cats."

The Fight Was Over before It Began.  --DaCoot
