Stay away from the hard cider

The police blotter was a lot more fun in 1919. Here's another clipping1 from the Oct. 4, 1919, edition of The State Register in Laurel, Delaware. Poor John Harmon2 got himself into a fine mess.

The "Harbenson" mentioned in the story is almost certainly a misspelling of Harbeson, Delaware, an unincorporated community in Sussex County. Harbeson isn't too far from Belltown, another unincorporated community in southeastern Delaware.

1. See a previous clipping from this issue of The State Register here.
2. Is this the same John Harmon referred to in the clipping? Some of the dates and locations match.
