goodsSHOOTING
SHOOTING AFFRAY On last
Saturday exdeputy sheriff D G
Clark andNElza Langford met in the
law office of Judge L W Bethur
um and resumed hostilities which
have existed between them for sev
eral months As to how the troub
le started we shall not attempt to
detail except that several months
ago they had a slight difference at
a church near Orlando later they
met at Orlando and each emptied
his pistol at the other Langford
receiving a slight wound in the
arm Friends interceded and both
parties agreed to let the past be
the past and to stop all hostilities
which it was hoped by everyone
would be carried out as both men
are not afraid and each has al
strong following But unfortu I
nately they met and but little prov
cation being necessary the trouble
was renewed Langford falling
seriously wounded on shat taking
effect in the head another in the
shoulder and another in the arm
however the one iu the head is the
only one of any consequence
Lang ford who wasthoaght to be
mortally wounded was as soon as
possible taken to the jail residence
no one believing hat he could live
but a few hOunLJeing uncon
scious and from therange of the
bullet it was known that the same
had entered the brain or a part of
it as the bullet split and onehalf
had come out only a short distance
from where itentted shortsIstance
Dr H V pen bgton bedof
the Pennington Infirmary London
rode into town jl st a few moments
after the trouble occurred Know
ing hjs reputation as a surgeon
Dock Langford a brother of the
wounded man at once called him
to see his brother A consultation
was held with the local physicians
and it was decided that without an
operation death was sure with it
there was one chance out of many
against him for recovery At 8
oclock the operation was begun
and before 12 oclock the patient
was thoroughly at himself resting
fairly well and the physicians felt
sureof his recovery notwithstanding
the fact that he had lost more than
two ounces of his brain that one
half of a bullet from a 38 S VI
revolver had gone two inches iuto
his brain and had been taken out
and that a dozen or more fragments
of hone had been removed from
I the brain While he suffers in
tensely with his head most of the
time and is very restless at times
I yet each day shows slight improve
ments and the physicians believe
that he will be able to pull through
although there are many chances
against him
I Should Langford recover it will
certainly make Dr Pennington
1
who has always made surgery a
I
specialty an enviable reputation in
this cduntv
IClark at once surrendered and
was under guard until Monday
when he was reka ed on bond of
2ooo His examining trial rsset

The Republican Convention 1 I
which met here Saturday seemed to
I
be a most harmonious gathering
If there were any Hughs or Fair
banks men present they kept
perfectly quiet giving Taft the
unqualified instructions of the
county
Rev B S Davault says that
his neighbor and friend J A Stokes
had a most remarkable snake
killing experience a few days ago
that with two shots he killed IT
snakes and wounded another and
going a short distance found
another which he killed with a
club Mr Davault did not say
what kind of a gun was used
whether rifle pistol or shotgun
TELEFONE NOTES Telefone
companies will shortly serve notice
that fone will be removed from
places on toll and party lines where
persons persist in listening in
and rubbernecking and holding
receiver off the hook thereby caus
ing confusion annoyance and
delaying business over the wires
When a receiver is off the hook
it is nearly impossible to ring
through On some lines children
seem to make a plaything of the
fone Parents should see that
this is not done Subscribers out
on line should take notice and
be governed accordingly looking
well to their own interests etc
Sheriff R L McFerron and
Deputy G S Griffin took Callie
Mullins Charlie King and Grover
Allen to the pen Tuesday Mullins
sent for striking A Pennington
with brass knucks King for
killing a young man by the name
of Young and Allen charged with
bigamy Allen on reaching
Frankfort was taken to the
Governors office where he found
awaiting him the most precious
and most highly appreciated present
he has or will ever receive a full
and complete pardon and on Wed
nesday night returned to his home
in this county in company with
the sheriffs who had taken him
away the night before not as a
prisoner but asa free citizen
While in a legal sense young Allen
may have been guilty ot the
charge yet in a moral sense he was
not g sr ee
J him 1 a free man again i

Mr S H Martin is in receipt
of a letter from his daughter Mrs
slElmer
Elmer Houk of Jamestown mad
stating that Dell Houk next to
the youngest son of Mr and Mrs
L T Honk is down with what is
known as quick consumption and
is rapidly sinking Six weeks age
he was the picture of health Mr
L T Houk added a post script to
the same letter stating that there
had lately been several deaths from
this same disease and that as soon
as he could wind up hte affairs he
would leave that place Mr
Houks oldest son died only a few
years ago of consumption but of a
different form <
One of the successtul farmers of
the county was heard to make this
remark a few days agoliThe
farmers have come to a realization
of the fact that more attention to
the farm is the thing needed in
Rockcasfle but before we farmers
can possibly make any considera
ble showing or be able to realize
the proper reward for our labors
I there must be some improvement
of the county roads to that when
the crops are ready for market
they can be delivered ata reason
able cost The author of the
above statement is one of the most
I successful farmers in the county
and bad roads says he is the
greatest draw back to the farming
industry as well as every other enterprise
