On Sunday night last, while a young man named Hayden Haines was going from Taneytown to Middleburg, he was stopped by a man under the big bridge on the York road, with a demand for money. Haines opened his penknife as the man advanced toward him and cut him on the hands to such an extent that the highwayman gave a yell and departed. There is no clue to his identity. -- American Sentinel, Dec. 11, 1897.
