Last Saturday morning Mr. W. W.
Holladay and wife, of Summerton,
were on their way to Manning. When
sear Mr. A. W. Thames's a dog scared
the horse, causing him to run. The
buggy was run up on a bank of e.'n-th,
throwing out both Mr. and Mrs. Hol
aday. Mr. Holladay was seriously
hurt, sustaining concussion of the
brain. He was unconscious for sev
eral hours. Mrs. Holladay was injur
ed lightly. Both were considerably
bruisedand shaken up. Mrs. Holla

but Mr. Holladay is yet confined to his

Representative Richard W. Town

last Saturday, of pneumonia, con

A rubber snake, one of the best im
itations we ever saw, created much
fright on one side, and amusement on
the other side, in town last Monday.
A popular clerk in one of the stores
beat a precipitate retreat from a bar
rel of potatoes upon discovering a
venomous looking reptile seemingly
in the act of striking his poisonous
fangs into his quivering flesh. The
rubber snake had been surreptitiously
placed in the barrel while the popular
clerk was getting the potatoes out.
One of our most progressive farmers
had the snake to pitch on to his arm
while in the act of shaking hands
with the practical joker. The prac
tical joker almost had to pick himself
up off the ground, and the progres
sive farmer insisted that the snake had
bitten him on his wrist, showing the
abraded place. It took some time to
convince him that it was not a real
snake. And so on throughout the
day. Judge Appelt and Mr. Wither
spoon were the artists who handled
Only a Mule.
Mr. Ferdinand Sports attempted to
drive a mule and buggy, belonging to
Mr. James M. Sprott, across Pocotal
igo river bridges last Tuesday night.
The mule got a foot in a hole in the
bridge. In attempting to pull his
foot out he jerked up a plank, and
every one of his struggles to extricate
himself resulted only in his getting
up more of the planks, until finally a
hole so big was made that he fell
through into the water below. The
water was deep and the banks steep,
so that all the mule could do was to
hold his own, and keep from drown
ing. Assistance was gotten from Man
ning, and the mule pulled out, though
with great difficulty. The buggy and
harness was much injured.
It was not at the time, on account
of the darkness of the night, supposed
that the mule was badly injured, but
before he could reach Mr. Sprott's,
about eight miles from Manning, he
lay down and died. An investigation
the nest morning showed that he had
been snagged into the hollow, and
that his food had run out the wound.
Poor mule! he must have suffered
This is the second time recently
that a horse has been injured at the
same crossing. Mr. J. W. Huggins a
few weeks ago had a horse severely
injured at the same place. The cause?
We can't say. The county commis
sioners possibly can answer why poor
horses must endure such cruelty, and
the people's property be put in such
jeopardy. We understand that on
these bridges the board; are simply
laid on the stringers without fasten
inga of any kind. Had there been any
fastenings~ to have held down the
boards the probability is that the
mule would have gotten his foot out
without danger. Who is responsible
for the condition of. the bridges? The
county commission-ers we think. Old
Uncle Wade Newman has a contract
to put those bridges in repair, but it
is well known he is very slow, and the
needs of the public demand that the
county be well supplied with bridges.
It will probably be months before Mr.
Newman will finish the work. Penny
wise and pound foolish. The money
that will have to be paid out for dam
ages by these two accidents would
probably have put these bridges in
first class condition. Bad roads, and
especially bad bridges, will injure the
business prospects of any place. Who
cares to risk the lives of his stock, and
probably the lives of himself and fam
ily, by coming to Manning over such
We have been told there are other
bridges in the county so unsafe that
a two-horse. wagon would not ven

Attempt at Highway Robbery.
One day last week, between sunset
and dark, as Mr. Furman Jenkinson,
of Panola, was going from his fath
er's to his and his brother's farm, by
a neighborhood road, a big burly ne
gro caught up with him, and in avery
polite manner began asking him about
the distance to certain places in the
neighborhood. Having got pretty
close to him, he suddenly jumped at
him, and by a half push and half
knock, threw him on the ground, and
jumped on him. He then with an
oath said that he would have what he
had or else he would kill him, at the
same time reaching back to his pistol
pocket for a~ razor. Mr. Jenkinson is
himself pretty stout, and when the
negro reached back for his razor, he
by an effort threw the negro off suf
ficiently to draw a razor, which he
fortunately had placed in his pocket
just before starting from his father's.
The negro slashed at him, cutting
through his coat and vest, but did not
reach the skin. Mr. Jenkinson then
returned the compliment, but more
successfully, catting through the ne
gro's cloth'es into his shoulder, caus
ing him to bleed freely. This was
too much for the negro, who, uttering
several cries of pain, turned and fled.
The negro was a stranger to Mr.
Jenkinson, and was very probably one
of the railroad negroes working in
that section, who, it is said, are a very
vicious and dangerous class of peo
Since the above was in type we have
heard that the negro was found dead
in the woods, having bled to death.

report, though it comes from a renia

An Embryonic Duel.
Messrs. LaMotte Lesesne, Eddie
Briggs, and a crowd of friends were
assembled at Capt. LaMotte Lesesne's
residence, near Panola, last Saturday
afternoon. Capt. Lesesne's hospital
ity was boundless, and wine flowed
freely. A misunderstanding occurred
between two of the party. Capt. Les
esne and Lieut. Ed. Briggs, both be
longing to the same military compa
ny, became involved. Hot words
were spoken, followed by blows. A
lull came. The difficulty was again
renewed. Words, knives, and fists
were used. Capt. Lesesue cut at
Lieut. Briggs's throat with a knife.
Briggs struck Lesesne a stinging blow
in the face just in time to save his
throat from being cut, but got a deep
cut to the bone on his chin. Some
others of the party got mixed up in
the melee. Quiet was again had. Lieut.
Briggs the next day sent Capt. Les
esne a note demanding satsfac
tion, and suggesting Sammy Swamp
bridge as a suitable place to -meet.
Capt. Lesesne demurred from transact
ing such business on the Sabbath, but
said he would be ready Monday morn
ing to see him. But before any furth
er meetings could take place, peace
officers had the parties in band, and
each was required to give a peace
The above is a brief outline of what
might have been a bloody duel. The
parties engaged in the difficulty are
young, their blood warm, and they,
either one of them, would promptly
resent any insult. All were friends.
But wine, ruby red wine, was probably
the chief cause. No bad blood exist
ed before, and we presume all has
been satisfactorily settled ere now.
Explanations and apologies all around,
and "all's well that ends well."
