A curious case of sticking-up occurred on
Sunday, between Dunolly and the Bet Bet. Mr. Henry Ford, of Mount
Moliagul, was walking on this road to Maryborough,
when, about two miles out of Dunolly, a man rushed out at him from the
bush and demanded his money. Ford, however, being armed with a stout
stick, which had formerly served as a handle to a rake, and not "
seeming to see it," knocked the fellow over by a well directed blow
under the ear, but another assailant appearing on the instant, Ford took
to his heels, and got away.
