Duel to the Death
Wilmington (Del), Sept. 11 - Delmar which is on the southern border of Delaware touching the Maryland boundary, was the scene of a terrible duel to the death between two young men last night. The principals were Frederick Williams, aged 22 years, of Laurel, and Thomas Wells, aged 26, a farmer, living at Whitesville, six miles east of Laurel. One used a pruning knife and the other a pistol. Both are in a critical condition.
