The quarrel took place in tho yard of one Burl Hudson, who is a tenant on the farm of Robert Porry, the dead man. The gist of testimony ad duced at the inquest this afternoon is to tho effect that the Edwards brothers went to Burl Hudson's house Friday night about 8 o'clock to collect a bill from him. Perry lived about 300 yards from this man's house and was engaged until lt o'clock that night in hauling for age to his barn from the Heids.

Plea f~r Revision in Athletics Items of IJOCMI Interest. Seneca, Oct. 10.-Special: Your correspondent, with many other Sen eca citizens, ls entering a quiet but firm protest against Inter-high school athletics as practiced In Oconee county. Our impression ls that the Athletic Association WUB organized prlmnrlly to encourage physical cul ture among our boys, and inciden tally to foster a healthy rivalry be tween the hi,<h schools. The Im pression among some is to win races, "honestly If you can, hut win races." Anent the recent relay race between Seneca and Westminster, it is tho duty of tho managers of our tennis to abide by the rules of the association, If there bo any, and to ''put up or shut ni)." The rivalry existing between our schools now is dangerous, and If al! wed to run on with an utter disregard for rule or precedent will result In the death of the Athletic Association. We are In favor of athletics in tho schools; we are also In favor of a sane and friendly rivalry between the schools; but we are not In favor of Inter high school athletics as practiced to day. A boy should bo instilled willi principles that will make a man and a gentleman out of him, and we are convinced that this has been the aim and purpose of the manager of the Seneca team; but If what your correspondent learns ls true, there's something "rotten in Denmark," and lt should bo the business of tho offi cers of the Atheltlc.
