suggested itself. A black letler inar.usciipt

at L ovelaccville about a week ago, but be
fore thev could get together friends inter
fered and prevented a dilliculty, though
Juries asserted tint be ititendel to kill
carnett. Last Suh lay Jones proceeded to
Cilil'orni.i Church an 1 learning that Jear

which be opened, ami went into 'he church.
S'eppiug in front of Jearr e't, he raised the
knife and said, ' 1 n yod, this ditlkulty
must be settled right here,' or words to that
eff ct. lick as thought Jeamett Caught
Jones by the nrm and drawing his pistol he
leveled it at Jones and said 'd -n you, if
you move I'll kill you.' The effect was
electrical. Women commence I t sere am
and everybody ran for the doors and win-
lows. One la ly, w hose name w hose min e
we did not learn, in jdinping out of the
win low broke both of her ankles, an 1
others were s imewhat bruise 1 in the gen

rest. The affair created quite a sensition
in tho neiohb orhoo i, and some folks fetr
that blood will yet be shed about it."
