TURNED THE TABLES.
Negro who hid been Roughly Used by Men. Comes Back Wl*h Gun. Thomasville, June 7.—Saturday afternoon about four miles of this place J. C. Everhart, white, and Albert Moore, colored, got in to a dispute about a trade made between them some time previous. Words followed and Moore threw a rook and hit Everhart. Ever hart caught Moore and gave him a good choking, telling him to go away, which he did. Moore cam*, to town and bought a box of load ed shells and went back home, got his gun, loaded it and went back to see Everhart, who was at work in a field with his brother, Hubbard Everhart. Moore spoke a few words to J. C. Everhart and then told him he was going to shoot him, He cocked and aimed his gun and Everhart turned and ran for the woods. Just as he reach ed the woods Moore fired, but missed, then fired again and ong shot hit Everhart iu the neck Moore then turned on Hubbard Everhart and told him he would give him two minutos to get on his horse and get away. However, Everhart didn’t need but about ten seconds—he skiddooed to the woods in a hurry. After this Moore took to the woods and this writiug has not been caught. No one can account for the strange actions of Moore, for he has always been considered a harmless, geaceableold negro. He recently suffered a stroke of pa ralysis and is badly crippled in one side. J. C. Everhart .is out at work and suffered very little from the one shot which hit him. A Zealous Officer. “I want the United States com missioners throughout this district to understand that they are to stay in their offices and try cases brought before them by the prop er officers, according to the law and the evidence, and that I will consider it proper cause for re moval for any commissiocer to in any way participate iu gathering evidence or doing anything to in fluence the biinging of cases into his court,” declared Judge H.

Another Feudist Killed. Jackson, Ky., June 7.— lahan, a former Breathitt oountj sheriff and notorious Jcd-Aist, was last night fatally -snot by an un known peisf*> while quietly sit ting in hfs home in this city. The shooting is supp ised to be the re sult of a long-standing feud. Callahan, though a deacon in the church, was the right hand man of Judge James Hargiss, tin feudist who was killed by his soi last year. The reputation of Cal lahan was very bad in this part oi the country. Callahan’s shooting stirred Jackson as never before. Its in habitants are polishing their ri fles in anticipation of trouble. The trouble here Thursday, started bj Jake Mohle and A. S. Johnson, bringing into action the well known Deaton Faction. It is be lieved the shooting of Callahai will bring into the country a bat tallion of the national guard. Judge Adams has appealed to the governor for protection, while sitting on the circuit court bench. Since Callahan’s followeres deolare they will kill the Deaton laciion there is little chauoe of keeping order without troops. Health Never Falls to Restore Gray Hair to Its Natural Color and Beauty.

Anderson, S C., June. 4—The half decomposed brdy of a white female infant was found in the woods just outside the northeast ern limits of the city late this af ternoon. It was wrapped in an old checked apron and flour sack and appeared to have been dead for two days or more. It was nardly more than a few hours old when pitched into the woods. The sheriff viewed tho body this afternoon and an inquest will be held to-morrow morning. I' is net known whether the child was alive or dead when left in the woods.—Special to Charlotte Ob server. Whiskey is Scarce. Some of the out-of-town whiskey dealers think they have hit it rich They are sending out an offer to deliver a gallon of liquor for so much including the gift of a hand s me cut glass decanter with'a stopper arranged so it cannot be opened except by one knowing the combination, having a dial just like a safe This is silly. Let a man leave one of these de canters exposed, filled with liquor, the first man that got his eye on it would knock the neck of the de canter sky high in order to get the liquor. A little thing like a combination lock would not bot-i er him. To get the liquor would be his object and he would accom plish the feat. A fancy decanter might do in a town where whiskey is plentiful, but in a dry town like this it would not last three seconds. Whiskey is so scarce here that men are actually keeping it locked up in a vault.—Greens boro Record, Will Have to Sip the Pledge, Pittsburg.

Strange Freak of Lightning. Richmond, Va., June 7.—Miss Hilda Clark, was swinging in ham mock on the veranda of her home this afternoon watching the storm clouds, when a playful bolt of lightning struck her garter clasp, tore off the garter, ripped off the silken hose and shattered a high heel slipper. Miss Clark was shocked, but not injured. The only mark left by the lightning is a blue streak about her knee, where the garter clasped .the limb. Members of the household hurried to her assis tance. Miss Clark was found sit ting upright ill the hammock, but in an almost senseless condition. Ar; Alarming Situation.
