In about c. week he went back again, and, thinking perhaps Martin might do him bodily barm, he took along a six-shooter for self pro tection.

ANOTHER MURDER CASE. Dr. J. W. Davenport Killed 2. F. Wright, About a Woman. Last night Deputy Dob Nester brought In Dr. J. W.

From the evidence adduced from the stand, before Judge Talbot, the doctor shot the deceased on the Cth of this month, from the effects of which Wright nfterwnrd died. It seems that Wright was a mall carrier at Oakman, where the killing took place, and had the mall bag on his arm at the time ho was shot. Decoasod had a daughter named Rosa, who, It seems, was accused of writing a letter which disclosed somo things nbout tho doctor In connection with another woman which wore not pleasant to the doctor.
