yard," West Greenville staged anoth- F,

nine o'clock with the result that three ti;
men received painful bullet wounds
and a woman was seriously injured cc

When Cooper opened fire, a freq for

Casualties as stated. t
chief Reuben Gosnell of the rural 1
police department received a call
from West Greenville shortly after
eine o'clock which advised him of 1
the disturbance, and upon immediate
ly repairing to the scene, he found
t* various principals of the fight in
the hands of the doctors. After im
vest'gating the affair, the officer went <
before Magistrate Smith and took out i
a warrant for the arrest of 'O. J:
Cooper. Upon going to make the ar
rest, however, Chief Gosnell found
Cooper assisting the physician who
was attending the wound of Cooper's
wife, and on the attending physician's
'eeommendation that Cooper be al
lowed to attend the patient during the
night, the arrest was not made. The
wound of the woman appeared quite
serious last night, according to the
officer, who stated that Dr. W. L.
Mauldin, who attended her took overj
twenty stitches to close up the long
gash in her scalp.
Johnson Grummels was shot in the
left arm just above the wrist and it
was thought last night that both bones
were broken. John Burton received a
bullet in his right side, the ball pass
ing through his body and lodging in
the left side, where it was removed
shortly afterwards by Dr. Walker, the
attending physician. The nature of
