The husband of Mrs. Margaret Byars of San Mateo, Fla., was
away at work when Mrs. Byars became aware that there was a prowler
in her backyard. The stranger first yelled for her to open a door
and then proceeded to break it down. In the meantime Mrs. Byars had
gotten a rifle. As the would-be intruder smashed at the door, she
fired three times. The prowler promptly vanished.
