  • Notes 
    • "Too Much Lager Beer". A rather singular affair occurred here lately. Dr. Senghas, a well known physician in Dundee, whose practice consists in drinking "lagerbeer", went home intoxicated, and soon raised a quarrel with his "frau". He seized a loaded revolver and fired it off and threatened dire vengeance.

      His wife soon gave the alarm and the constable proceeded to the place. The doctor ran, but the constable ran faster, as the doctor is rather corpulent. The doctor unfortunately fell and was soon overtaken. He was taken before the magistrate, and bound over to keep the peace. He has since left the place and it is thought he has taken up his abode in Formosa, county of Bruce.

      Dumfries Reformer April 23, 1873
