The New York Times, 24 August 1885:

"HOLLIDAYSBURG, Penn., Aug. 23 - The village of Duncansville, five miles from here, is excited over a daring robbery committed 10 days ago. On Wednesday night, Aug. 12, two burglars, after breaking into several houses in Newry, an adjoining village, and securing gold watches and a large sum of money, entered the residence of George Clough, who worked in the Duncansville rolling mills, and who on that day received his month's pay. By means of a ladder the burglars climbed into Clough's bedroom, where a light was dimly burning. In rummaging through the bureaus the villains happened to make a slight noise. Clough awoke and saw one man in the room and the other at the window. He sat up in the bed and prepared to grapple with the first intruder, who said, "Lie still, or I'll shoot you!" Clough, being only half awake, scarcely recognized his peril, and was in the act of jumping out when the burglar leveled a revolver at him and fired, the ball penetrating Clough's chest and passing through the abdomen. The burglars then escaped without arousing the neighborhood. The wounded man lingered until late on Friday night. His funeral will take place to-day."
