A Big: FightCOn Wheels. '
Coming up from Covington Sunday
night, a big young fellow from Cynthiana
weight 214 pounds, was quite drunk and
panted for glory. He yelled, whooped
and swore. He said he was a "s of .
h on wheels and was from Kentucky!"
He. tramped on the toes and otherwise
sought a difficulty with a young man r
named Mike Sullivan, . from Lexington,
weight 178 'pounds, whom Horine had
bantered for a bout just half an hour
previously. When Horine pushed things
him too iar and said he "could ivhip
auy s n of a b h from Kentucky, Sullivan
or any other man." Sullivan told
him to pitch in that his name was Sullivan.
Sullivan yanked him up against
the hot stove and downed him between
two seats on the floor and punished him
until mercy was asked and granted.
On rising up, Horine drew a knife and
hacked Sullivan's clothing in several
places on the back, arm and vleg, but
made no serious wound. Sullivan again
downed him and held him there, forced
him to put up his knife, and again plead
for mercy. At this juncture Conductor
Throckmorton pushed through the crowd
where several hands were in pistol pockets,
took Sullivan away from Horine and
put him in the baggage car, when peace
reigned again. Being bitterly stung by
defeat, Horine became very obstreperous
afterwards and wanted more glory, but in
behalf of peace many kind friends of
Horiue held him back and warded off
further trouble.- Horine, when sober,
is of quiet demeanor, and is perhaps
largely the most powerful man of the
two, but liquor evidently gave him a
false impressien of his" strength and sparring
abilities on that occasion.
Ohio Liangftry and Xdllie River.
We went, we saw, we conq no. we
saw her "Stoop To Conquer." Mrs.
Langtry, we mean not the Ohio river.
The river had conquered several days
previous to Saturday evening, and was
just receding from the conquering business.
Mrs. Langtry no, Mrs. River, we
mean, looked fuller than we'd ever seen
her before, and had flooded her banks
worse than ever in the memory of old
Mr. Langtry pardon us. we mean the
oldest inhabitant Craddock for instance.
Mrs. Langtry Conquered as she Stooped,
or Stooped as She Conquered, in from a
fair to middling way. If we hadn't seen
her Ave wouldn't have known her, and if
we hadn't known her we would have taken
her for any big river no, any other
big chambermaid. Her forks at
the mouth of Licking appeared as a grand,
golden lake, and the city of Newport
seemed to be almost entirely, deluged.
Some called her pretty, while some called
her beautiful. We beg pardon to differ
widely. She was too angular, and on the
hypothenuse of a right-angle-triangle
style. She was broad-busted
The oldest inhabitant, however
reluctantly, admitted that she was
higher than the flood of '32, but still
grabbed at the traditional straw that an
old Indian said she once leveled the valley
from College Hill to the highest
peaks in the rear of Covington. While
we feel that we hardly got our dollar's
worth, it was highly gratifying next Sunday
morning to find that we could walk
over her to Covington dry-footed and free
of cost, save the usual toll of three cents.
It is our opinion that she's nothing but
