Date: November 27 1879

Newspaper published in: Cairo, Illinois

Columbus, O., Nov, 25.

David VAN SICKLE, a farmer living in Delaware county, was the victim of foul play last evening. He gave a tramp work and shelter yesterday, and after the family had gone to bed the stranger began to ransack the house. Mr. VAN SICKLE interfered and the tramp made an assault upon him with a butcher knife cutting him very severely about the face and arms. The villain also attacked Mrs. VAN SICKLE and then made his escape. A large number of citizens are searching for the tramp.
