Tom Welch, had a terrible fight
Thursday evening in front of
Tom Johnson's livery barn and
Wilson, who is a little fellow,
slashed his opponent, a man
weighing fully 200 pounds in
numerous places over the body
with a pocket knife nearly ending
his existence. The men had been

knocking him down. They came
out of the barn and Wilson said.
"'Did you mean to do that?"
Ferguson said ".No, I did not

partly finished reading the paper
•Scofield asked "Where is your
man?" Pitts looked around and
was surprised to find him miss

of the office, walked thru McCoy's
drug store and ran south on the
main street. All efforts to locate
the man have been futile. He

Ferguson picKed up a planK and
attempted to reach W ilson but
could not. The men walked to
the Soo depot where they had
another fight. Wilson was
arrested and taken to the county
jail. All he would say regarding
the fight was: "I tried to finish

not do so." Ferguson was taken
to Dr. Wind ell's office by Officer
Kimball and Judge Murray and
was held down while his wounds
were dressed. He was then taken
to the county jail. Wilson will
uo doubt get a penitentiary sent

jail several months last winter.
