EXCITING    What will the Carrick-on-
SCENES    Shannon rowdy, Parnellites
next turn their hand to? 
This week they appeared in the role of
emergencymen.  No more trusty fellows could
be selected for this purpose (that two masons
named Bob V.F.P.X.V.M.Z. Cryan, and
a burly-looking fellow named Hayden, who
accompanied him from Carrick.  The latter's
Christian name is either James or John, but lest
I should make an unintentional mistake
and inflict unnecessary pain on any Carrick
person, I will attempt a little personal
description of this Hayden.  He is tall and dark
complexioned with a wild black moustache
and lantern jaws and a prominent set of teeth
and lips which bear evidence of frequent contact
with porter.  These worthy tools of rowdy
Paddy McManus were on Monday engaged
near Newtowngore - a village about three
miles from here - in levelling an evicted
tenant's house under the superintendence of
Cryan's father.  The people of the locality, who
were already incensed against them for the
Carrick infamy, soon made the district a veritable
frying pan for them with the result that these
Carrick Parnellite crowbar brigade men soon
flew.  Surely Nemises is dogging the footsteps
of the plotters and actors of the Carrick outrage!
