FIGHTER USES A ROCK.

Rock played an Important part in
a battle between Samuel Peterson and
Guktav Bruhn on Seventeenth street
early last evening. And the conse
quence is that Bruhn has quite a se
vere wouna tn the soutn ena oi his
cranium and both have been arrested
for disturbing the peace. Peterson
was fined 6 and costs and Bruha's
trial was continued for 10 daya.
The unpleasantness grew out of an
argument as to the whereabouts of
a pool ball at the saloon of John
Bruhn. The men exchanged a few
blows in the bar-room and finally
drifted out on the. thoroughfare
where they gave a few moments' dis
graceful exhibition of the manly art.
Peterson broke away from his an
tagonist and, picking up a stone, let
it go. This ended the fight.
