Pastor Kling, of West Marietta O., charged by Mrs. William Green Jr., with being too gay. [more]
The Rev. G. W. Kling, pastor of the Crawford M. E. Church at West Marietta, O., is in a peck of trouble. The other afternoon he called upon Mrs. William Green, Jr., a member of his church. During his stay he attempted to take unwarranted liberties with the good sister, and a violent struggle ensued. Mrs. Green’s screams or help were heard by her father who came to her assistance. Upon the appearance of the lady’s parent the wicked pastor suddenly recollected that he had important business elsewhere, and started off at a rapid gait to attend to it. Mrs. Green swore out a warrant for his arrest, but he has not since been seen, although the church people say they will have him at the Mayor’s office when wanted.
