To think that Wm. Miller, who recently so handsomely entertained his fellow club members at his country seat, and whom they have always regarded as a model of decorum and dignity, that he should have been caught in the act of tearing out of the front of a house on the Independence pike is almost beyond belief; but stranger still is the report that when the irate inhabitant, armed with a double barreled shot-gun, rushed out to demand redress, the imperturble William simply bent on him a look of supreme contempt that almost paralyzed the brawny rustic, for he immediately retreated the way he came and a moment later was heard bolting and barring the door.
