Dunlap Saturday nigh*, as tho rosultof
a disturbuucj origina'iog in Harrison
Hunter's re taurant. A parlor rille was
used and tho wound which is in Cary's
thigh is not serious. It was claimed at
llrst that the shooting was accidontal.
This, howovor, appears to do untrue.

in which Hunter was lined $25.00 for
being a party to tho disturbance, wit
nesses stated tt.at he prccurtd tho
gun, and after llourlth'ng it about the
place in a threatening mannor, handed
tho r ile to tho boy and told him to
shoot. To the surprise of all 'tis said,
and certainly to tho discomfort of Cary,
tho boy promptly oboyod tho order.
Hunter, it soems, had objected to the
presonce of Cary and sumo stormy
words, followed by a passage at each
othor with an apple, lod to tho shoot

Hunter is regardod as wholly responsi
