SHOT MAY PROVE FATAL. Sheriff R. W. Bandy spent Thurs day in Bird township near the scene of the shooting related in the last is sue of the Independent. Sharp, the most seriously injured of the two men shot by \V. B. O. Renfro, is hardly ex pected to recover from his wounds, as his condition remains very critical. The shooting occurred Wednesday morning, but the facts whic h led up to the same have not been disclosed, as the prisoner is wise enough to maintain silence. He however claims that James McDaniel, whose life he sought to take, had shot at him the night before when he was on his way home. Maud Sharp and James McDaniel met in front of the Renfro house Wednesday morning, when the last named appeared upon the scene with a single barrelled shotgun. Mc Daniel got behind Sharp and Renfro ordered the latter to get out of the way, but pulled the gun up and fired before Sharp had time. Nearly the entire load took effect in Sharp’s chest, only a few shots striking McDaniel, whose injuries are trivial compared with those of the former. Constable Henry Bearden took Renfro in charge and he now rests in the county jail as previously stated. THE BANK OF NEWPORT (Oldest and Largest Bank in the County).
