THE MAYCOMB MESSENGER
THURSDAY,NOVEMBER 2, 1933
LAWYER'S CHILDREN ATTACKED
Town's beloved children attacked by angered man.
Late Tuesday night, Jem and Scout Finch, son and daughter of town lawyer Atticus Finch, were attacked after walking home from the Halloween pageant. Bob Ewell was the suspected attacker. The Finch's reported that as they were walking home after the pageant they heard someone following them. Next thing they knew someone was coming after them with what seamed to be a kitchen knife. Scout Finch was protected by her ham costume from the pageant. However, Jem Finch was knocked unconscious while trying to fight off Ewell. Luckily, a visitor from out of town saw the incident and carried Jem to their house where he was examined by Dr. Scott Reynolds. Ewell was found with the knife in his chest most likely from being triped and falling on the knife.
" Without the my costume design they both would be dead, " said Miss Merriweather. "I should be getting compensation for this. I saved everybody's lives." Merriweather went on to say, "Maybe this is karma for messing up my pageant."
MAYOR'S DOG SHOT DEAD
Last week Wednesday Mayor Johnson, came home from a business trip to see that his dog, Tim Johnson, was shot dead by Maycomb residents. Witnesses reported that the dog was running down the street with foam oozing from his mouth.
"He was always so kind and loving to all Maycomb folk. He would never harm a soul. I don't understand why anyone would shoot him." Johnson.
Atticus Finch was later claimed the shooter. " I had to do what I had to do. He was going to bite one of us and I couldn't take any chances."
