A large crowd from all parts of the
county was in town last Monday, to
hear what Mr. Pettigrew wculd have

was their disappointment when it was
known he would not be present, and
that nothing could be done. It was
not known why Mr. Pettigrew did
not come. We presume another effort

want to try it and see if it will do
them any good.

The students held their usual re

strated that pleasure reigned supreme.
The occasion altogether was a fitting
supplement to the hard work the
students had been doing since the
beginning of the session, and the
teachers felt fully repaid by the en
joyment each one seemed to realize
during the evening.
Tried to Shoot a Poheeman.
A white man of this town got on a big
drunk last Monday evening, and attempted
'to paint the town auburn. He got vexed
with one of the policemen who attempted
to quiet him, and cursed him exten
sively, and then went home to get
his "weapon." He obtained his Manning
Guards rifle, and both loaded it and .fixed
bayonets ready for a charge. The police
man hearing his cursings in another part
f the town went to quiet him4 but was or
eredl not to approach or clse he (the
drunken man) would shoot. Here was a
prtty mess. The drunk-en man being in
the shade of a tree, the policeman could
not see all his movements, and numerous
evolutious were made to try to gain a van
tage. Finally the rifle was discharged, do
ing no damage however. The policeman
then easily captured the drunken man, and
conducted him to the guard house where he
was kept for several hours, till the red
paint grew paler. All this happened in a
populous part of the town, near the Court
Bouse, in the early part of the night. Such
disgracefnl conduct should be severely pun
ished. To fire off such a rifle, in so popu
lous a part of the town, puts in danger and
jeopardy the lives of our families.
This is not by any means the first time
this man has been guilty of gross disorderly
conduct, and we fo)rbear publishing his
name on this occadion simply out of con
sideration of -tie feelings of his family;
but the public demand' that he be severely
punished. Will hebe?
