We have recently been provided evidence of the existence, description and photostatic evidence of a new terror weapon. It has apparently been developed secretly in the American West by a German ex-patriate. This German, a Doktor Schleissbaum, seems to have done little more than use the infernal device to terrorize the town of Leadwood briefly, and engage in some knavish behavior. A peeping Tom, of all things!
