B. F. Jones met and engaged in a
conversation of ten or fifteen min

just what led to the tragis ending of
the interview is not known. Mr. Hud
gens fired several shots from a pistol
at Dr. Jones, all of them taking ef
fect. The one that entered about the
centre of the chest had not been lo-1
cated up to the time he was carried ?
to Augusta. The details leading up j
to the altercation are not known to |
the public as there were no eye-wit_ j
nesses. Dr. Jones had a pistol in the
pocket of his car but none on his per
son. All four of the local physicians
were called to the aid of the wounded
man and he was given the closest
attention until he was carried to the

ing. He stood the trip well and while
nothing very definite has been heard
from him since his condition seems
to be no worse. An X-ray photograph
?will be made before an operation is,
undertaken to extract the ball. The
.physicians believe he has a good
chance for recovery.
Immediately after the shooting
Mr. Hudgens went to the Court
"House and surrendered to the sheriff
and is now in jail. When he will ap
ply for bail has not been stated.
