saulted and almost killed last

door of Mr. UofThine' house
opened, walked in and com
menced to raisd a disturbance.
Mr. Iloflhines remonstrated
with the m, and alter an hour
or so, they started lo leave.
Mr. llnflli'nes accompanied
iliem to the door, and as he
turned back to go into a room,
some one of the men hurled a
brick with great force after
him. The brick struck him
near the crown of the head on
the occipital bone, chipping
out a piece one-half inch in
length. The blow knocked
hitn forward on his face, which
wis ery much bruised by the
fall. Dr. B. F. Miesse was call
ed in to dress the wounJs. He
removed a piece of Ihe skull,
and although tne wounds are
vary senou, yet it is,probable
that Mr. Uoflhiues will recover.
