1890, Bollinger Mill, Missouri: Man Assaulted While Crossing Burfordville Covered Bridge

Sandy Sparks, an employee at the Bollinger Mill, was walking home from his shift grinding corn.  He stopped on the Burfordville bridge to smoke a cigarette before making the walk uphill toward home.

Sparks admitted that he was not paying close enough attention to have seen which way it came from, but suddenly he was being attacked by a hairy ape-thing.  The creature, completely covered in hair and smelling like manure, was pummeling him with large meaty fists.

Caught unawares, Sparks suffered for nearly a minute under this hairy attack.  But quickly, Sparks recovered his wits and fought back.  Sparks prided himself on his boxing abilities, which he honed while in a prison camp during the great war between the States.

Sparks quickly turned the tables and made short order of his ape attacker.  Sparks delivered furious blows and eventually landed a knockout punch.  It was this punch that sent the beaten apeman over the railing of the bridge, falling the 14 feet into the Whitewater River.

Sparks watched as the ape creature sank like a stone.
