A recent dispatch published in the
Gazette telling of a tight between l)r. ,
A. S. Buchanan and a tramp last Mon
day, which occurred when the physi
cian asked the tramp to work, evi
dently was rend by comrades of the
tramp. Dr. Buchanan received the
following letter Saturday:
“1 noticed the clipping in the Ar
kansas Gazette about you outraging !
the fellow son of rest and I wish to
inform you that this act is against
the constitution of the ‘Stiffs’ Good
Government Association.’ Now I wish
to warn you against such an act again.
The Sons of Rest are for pleasure and
not for slavery. President Lincoln
put an end to slavery in the Civil
War. The next time you get the hon- |
nr of befriending a brother of the road
please accommodate them. Hoping
some day you will be on the road your
self and we will treat you as a bro
ther. Please put an apology in the
Gazette to let the Sons of Rest know
you have reformed. (Signed)

John Culp, living about two miles
on the other side of the river in Clark
county, brought to Prescott this
morning a large, gray timber wolf
which he shot near the John White
place. He and his little son were out
hunting yesterday and the dogs trailed
the wolf for a good ways until the
wolf became desperate and turned in
his tracks and began running the
dogs. It was while the wolf was in
pursuit that be came into view of
Mr. Culp who had a gun loaded with
buckshot; he took careful aim and
fired, hitting the wolf in the right
shoulder, killing him. The wolf is
of the loafing variety and is a very
rare specimen in this state. He
weighed about 70 pounds. Mr. Culp
is offering him for sale.
