Threatening a Saloonist

Falmouth, May 19., - The good women of Lenoxburg, a place nine miles east of here, visited a saloon-keeper by the name of Pugh, who had just started a bar-room in their quiet neighborhood, and presented a petition signed by every lady in the country asking him to quit this nuisance business. He became much enraged and threatened to kick them out if they returned, and said if any man came he would shoot him. Pugh came to town to seek legal advice, and is determined to hold to his business. He is a man of very bad temper.
