Sunday morning. October It. Abbe-.t,
immediately after the affray had taken
place, harnessed his horse and drove

placed in Jail.
The shooting was a result of an old
quarrel, growing out of a land deal,
and took place In the road near the
Abbott home. Abbott claimed that he
shot in self-defense, after hearing
threats made on his life, while another
story, that given by Abbott's (rela?

to the effect that the shooting was
entirely without provocation. Cole?
man was shot twice, once in the stom?

Coleman was carried to his home af-'
tag be was wounded, and after rally?
ing somewhat, relapsed and died two
weeks later of paralysis, which was
attributed by one of the attending
physicians, who testified In court, to
the wounds received.
A curious feature about the trial
was the difference In the trend of
testimony given by the Commonwealth's
witnesses and those of the defense.
Both sldee held rigorously to their
version of the shooting, and could not
be shaken. j
Both men were members of well
