This attests the fact that he gives an entertainment of unusual merit, and one eagerly welcomed by the most refined, intelligent and cultural people. Onr Trees Ml!

A family fisrht occurred last Sat| urday near North, in Orangeburg county, in which Mr. James A.Jeffcoat was killed by his father, Mr. R. A. Jeffcoat. A brother of the dead man also shot and wounded j him. The fatal row was the culmi-! nation of family difficulties, and | from what we can gather the facts are about as follows: .Some years ago R. A. Jeffcoat, the father, purchased a farm and hud the titles made out in his wife's ' name. Afterwards the husband and wife had some disagreement, and a ^ separation finally resulted. This also led to a division of feeling [ among the children, some taking ' their mothers part and some the father's. Then the land became a " cause of dispute, and James Jeffcoat bought it from his mother. His father still attempted to work the j land, and last Saturday morning the dead man found some of his father's I hands working thereon. He made them leave, and soon afterwards his ^ father and brother, William, appeared on the scene, armed with a shotgun and rifle, respectively. The j dead man's ante mortem statement says that his father first shot him in the thigh with the shotgun; he returned the fire with a gun, hut. ,0,1 nronfionum! then his 1IIISOCU l/IJV >'m jjV. >a w- J t brother, William, shot him with the rifle, shattering his arm; that he , then asked another brother, Grover, f who was present, not to let them shoot him again, but his father |, came right up to him and shot him e in the abdomen. The gun was loaded y with buckshot, and the wounded s man died Saturday night about ; nine o'clock. & The affair is a deplorable one, and f it is said that the family is a promir nent one in that section. o e Col.
