HARRESVILLE HAS 1 SHOOTING SCRAPE IT MIDNIGHT A wordy dispute over a bet as to whether a certain race horse was dead mixed with considerable red li quor. created a row at Harrivill near the midnight hour last night which resulted in the use of a shot gun and the pummeling of a man's face. The neighborhood thought the town was being shot up when they heard the discharge of a double-barreled shotgun and the sheriff's office 1 was called Deputy Sheriff George Leatham hurried out to the scene of battle and arrested Henrj McCul . lough, a resident of Harrisvllle, and Wade Miles, a tianslent. who has j been employed at the brick yards explained bv the men who par ; ticipated In the fight, and others who were eye witnesses, the first cause I of trouble was an argument as to ' whether a famous race horse was 1 dead and the disagreement led to ; blows. McCullough gave Miles a j good thrashing, even though he was much older than Miles, and the lat ter became so exasperated that he hurried '0 his place of residence and secured a double-barred shotgun with which he made his way to the McCul lough residence and began firing :nto the house. McCullough ran from his home when Miles began shooting and It Is said that Miles tried to pry open the door of the McCullough resi dence. Evidences of this fact are shown in the bent barrel of the shot gun this morning which the man no doubt used as a "jimmy.'' Our to the fact that the men had entered into a fight and that Miles had trone so far as to use a gun both men were arrested and placed in the county jail where the principals will 6pend the Fourth of July In sober re flection The officers say that con siderahle liquor was had by the men (luring the evening and that it was that which caused much tAlk and the fistic exhibition. McCullough is a man about 40 years old and he has a family at Harrisvllle while Miles is only about 25 years of age single, and does not permanently reside at Har risville. McCullough was thoroughly frightened when Miles made the shot gun raid and the first thing he In quired after his arrest was whether : Miles had harmed any of his family.
