The Lucan Ku-Klux Klan on the Rampage.

Things have now gone so far at Lucan that the authorites should lose no time in bestirring themselves to ferret out the perpetrators of the fiendish outrages which have for some time back given that locality a reputation for rascality second to none in the Province. On Saturday night another horse had its throat cut, making the nineteenth horse killed or burnt by the gang of desperados who infest the locality.
