CLEARF BY JURY

tErnest then jumped out of the bushes
and shot at Inc. I shot back. I pull

I shot five times. I ran 175 or 200
yards down the road and turned out
into the woods."
After leaving the scene of the kill
ing Edwards testified to joining his
brother and wife who were picking
cotton some distance away and then
going toward Barksdale station for
To corroborate the story of the de
fendant, several witnesses were put
on the stand by the defense to describe
the surroundings of the scene imme
diately after the killing. Mr. Arthur
Putnam, the employer of 'Cornelius
Edwards, testified to going to the
scene and finding gun wads and oth
er evidences of the conflict. On the
ground by the mule tracks he saw the
impression made by the pants of Cor
nelius Edwards when he was kneel
ing, lie also testified to seeing the
to. impre<'slons behind the Imnpres
sbons of the knee. On the side of the
wagon, he said he also saw indications
of glancing shot, showing that they
-had Leei fired from the rear of the
wagon toward someone sitting in
front. lie said he was struck with
the fact at the time th at there were
no marks of any kind on the trees or
shrubbery on each side of the road,
indicating that all of the shots must
have been flrcd lengthwise of the road.
Anticipating the story of the de
fendan t, the state introduced several
witinesmei who testified to hearing the
1;il shots from a distance and a num
ber of these gave it as their impres
sion that the shot gun was fired after
several shots from the pistol, thus re
futing the testimony of Edwards that
the first shot was from the gun of Ern
est Sharpe. John Sharpe, a relative
of the deceased Sharpe boys, testified
to finding bullets in the rear end of
the Sharpe buggy and also on the
back side of the single-tree, indicating
that there were other shots from the
pistol of Edwards than those which
had effect in the body of his two as
sailants. Evidently this testimony had
little weight with the jury.
In all there were about twenty-five
witnesses put on the stand, the larger
part of them to develop the motive of
each side in bringing on the difficulty.
Judge Hlowman charged the jury
very explicitly on the indictment for
murder, with a full exposition of the
law as to self-defense, the plea of the
defense. The case went to the jury
