fined to tba brothers of the girl- Morri
eoa waa at tbe house of J. li. Marksville
oa professional business. Miss Tettas, a
daughter, was alone in the house at tba
time. When the man made known his
character ho waa told to leave and com
plied. Tbe girl told ber three brothers.
Tbey started out to hunt bim up. Morri
soa hired a livery rig and drove to Abey,
six mtlea south.
Tho brother started on a train, and
found Morrison ready to set on tbe same
train for Whitehall. Tbey promptly
thrashed him with tbeir fists, but used no
Clubs or aconee. When tbey bad finished
with bim be took hie gripsack and left.
and the last tbey knew of him be was on
bis way out of Alsey through a cornfield.
It may bo Morrison will not be able to tuna
pianos for several days but be ia not dan
