A deplorable affair occurred near the freight depot Saturday evening, in which Wm. Jackson, a young man frou near Cumberland Cityi was severely hurt. Jackson came to town Saturday morning and loaded up with Christmas whisky. He went to the freight depot to get on a freight train and go home. While there he became boisterous and annoyed the employees until some one telephoned for a policeman. Officer Robinson answered the call and arrested Jackson and started to town with him. The drunken pris oner on the way threw his arm around a post and swung on to it for dear life. In trying to pull him loose the officer tore his coat clean off of him, and failing to get him loose by this means he struck him two heavy blows over the head with hia club. One blow landed squarely on top of Jackson's head, cutting a gash some two inches long, going to the bone. The second blow was on the back of the head, where a second gash was cut. The prisoner bled profusely, and had to be put into a wagon and brought to town. Dr. Northington was called to the police station and dressed the wounds, and pronounced them serious, thongh not dangerous unless erysipelasshould develop. Jackson was kept in the lock-up until yesterday morning, when he was able to board the train for home. He put up $10.00 for his appearance at city courtthis morning crry COURT. In the city court this morning Si san Stoner, colored, was fined $5.00 for disturbing the peace. Wm.

In addition to the fine beef they will have html and pork in abundance,' also corn beef, corn tongue, spice rounds, tripe, all kinds of sausage, including coun try sinoked pork sausage. Notwith standing the fact that a high price has been paid for the meat to make this special Christinas display, then- will be no extra charge to customers ; the prices will remain the same and this will constitute Kleeman A Co.'f Christmas gift to their friends. New fixtures have recently born put in the shop and everything has been newly painted. The public will find this out, however, when they go there to morrow. The ladies are specially in vited to call about 10 o'clock, as at that hour everything will be in shape, and a line display will greet them.

Business here is rapidly readjust ing itself, confidence is being restored and our people are exhibiting that pluck and energy which has long characterized them. We are much gratified this morning to announce the partnership of J. C. Kendrick and Charles D. Runyon. commission merchants, who have arranged to op erate the Central Warehouse, and have ample financial backing to con duct the business. Mr. Kendrick has long been connected with the busi ness as manager of the sales depart ment and is an excellent salesman, lie Is known all over this country as a gentleman of the highest integrity, faithful to every trust. Mr. Runyon has been connected with this trade some three years and has gained thorough knowledge of the business. He came here from Trenton, Ky., where he was reared, and always es teemed for his steady business habits and high integrity. He has capital and a strong backing from his section, which assures the house a profitable business to begin with. Mr. Kendrick is one of the unfor tunates that went down in the wreck, a thing which he could not help or avoid, and it does not in the least affect his honor or integrity. He is a number one business man, and it is gratifying to see him ex hibiting the courage and vim of a true man, and all right thinking people will applaud his efforts, i Altogether Kendrick A Runyon compose a strong firm, and will be in the ring, and will do. all in their power to advance the interests of this market. The clubbing of Jackson while drunk, by Officer Robinson last Sat urday should, and doubtless will be, fully investigated by the police com mittee.
