    thrashed by a lady cyclist

    WHO IS NOTED FOR HER ATHLETIC POWERS.
    An extraordinary scene was witnessed on
    Saturday morning in Peel Lane, a thorough-
    fare connecting Little Hulton with Tyldesley,
    in which the principal participants were a
    young lady cyclist and a youth of nineteen
    or twenty. The lady was riding at a good
    pace, and when in a quiet part of the road
    the young man, who had apparently been
    imbibing, stepped into the roadway, and,
    addressing some insulting remarks to the
    cyclist, made as if he intended pulling her
    off the machine. She immediately alighted,
    caught hold of the astonished youth, and
    gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists
    in scientific fashion, to the delight of several
    colliers who were passing. The young man
    made off, and the cyclist, who is believed to
    be a Bolton Lady noted for her athletic
    powers, rode off towards Tydesley.

    Plenty of ladies around that can "take care of themselves".

    I saw one trying to pull a guy out through his car window once to teach him some manners...
