by brush and trees and negroes have been
In tho habit of congregating there to
gamble There wcro about twenty In this
houso at the tlmo mentioned when sud
denly a shot rang out from tho brush
near tho building then another followed
a perfect fusllnde as tho negroes
stampeded for the door and wlndowB
As they tumbled out shots wero being
nrcd Into tho crowd tho result being that
Fred Holston Dee Geter and Moso Roe
were nil shot in tho back Holston fell
Just In front of tho door but tho others
continued their flight Iho igoos scatter

returned when they heard Holston groan
ing and carried him to tho nearest houso
