ending for Miss Mabel Dunn, aged
20, a charming society girl of No

Thursday night on tho farm of
Mr. Best Qault, near Murpbys

shotjn tho breast with a 38 caliber
revolver, Miss Dunn, whot was

Wood Uwcns. was a member of a
coon hunting party. Tho young
folks had gono out in automobiles
to a point near where tho shooting
occurred and there met a colored
euido with .dogs, who started them
through tho farm of Mr. Gault.
They had not gono very far when
a shot was fired Jrora tho Gault
homo. Tho men in tho crowd
yelled to the shooter not to fire
again as there wcro ladies in the
party, whereupon a second shot
followed which struck Miss Dunn
in the breast, inflicting a serious
wound, tho extent of which is not
known. Physjcians were summon

lay on the ground for more than
two hours before being taken to
Mr. Gault was arrested and

In giving his version of the af

for a marauding Hallowe'en party,
who were after his wagons and
available things on the farm, and
that he fired to scare them.

Indicted ' for Serious
Crime. Denies His
Tw Jroailc Grew Out land
'Deli Id Jefferson Cetinty.
An indictment charging larceny
and cmbczzloment in tho sum of
$2,605.36 was returned by tho
grand jury several days ago
against Henry Watson, a well
known law.vcr and real estato bro
ker of Mt. Sterling tho facts of
which did not Jjecoino public until
recently when Watson waived ar
raignmont before Judge James if.
Gregory in flie Criminal Court,
pleaded not guilty to tho indict
mont, and arranged for ball of
$300. According to the informa
tion given out by James P. Ed
wards, ono of the attornoys in the
case, Watson came to Louisville
several weeks ago to close a deal
for the purchase of a farm in Jeff
erson county for Mrs. Bettio
Knox, of Mt. Sterling, and tho in
dictment grew out of alleged ille
gal methods pursued by Watson
in negotiating the deal.
It is charged, that ho purchased
a tract of land from George Schus
ter for $13,500, and that in com
pleting tho arrangements with
Mrs. Knox he claimed that tho
purchase price of tho property
was 15,000. It is further charged
that Watson claimed tha,t he had
to uso the 'sum of $600 to bind the
sale and that further he was forced
to pay the sum of $559.36 as inter
est on notes outstanding aeainst
he owner of the property before
he could get possession, both of
which sums, it is alleged, were
paid to him by Mrs. Knox.
After securing a title to the
property Mrs Knox came to Lou
isville and took possession of tho
farm, and a short time later, it is
charged, she discovered irregular
proceedings on tho part of Wat
son. She consulted Attorney Ed
wards, and the latter drew an in
dictment and presented the facts
to-tho grand jury with the result
that Watson was indicted. Wat
son is well known in Mt. Sterling
and other sections-of Eastern Ken
tucky where ho has practiced his
profession for years.
Tho case was seffor trial on
Dceember 10. Louisville Tildes.
We dsire to do Mr. Watson no
injustice and gladly publish his
statement of the facts in tho case,
as he claims them to be, taken
from the Sentinel-Democrat:
"There is not a word of truth
in the article that appeared in the
Louisville Post and other papers
Thursday afternoon. It is true
that I traded $16,485.64 worth of
notes belonging to Mrs. Knox to
Mr. Schuster for a farm of about
120 acres in Jefferson county,
paying $13,600 therefor, and that
Mr; Schuster paid me tho differ
ence between tho notes and the
price of the farm, which was 2,
885.64, and I paid Mrs. Knox
every ,cent of this money and ev
ery cent that was coming to her
and havo her receipt for same, and
am at a loss to know why she
should havo preferred charges
