Qkla., July 9.—En raged because another farmer was disputing his right to a six-foot patch of beans, D. A. Dodington today pulled a gun and shot at S. J. Jones. The bul let missed Jones, struck and in stantly killed Dodington’s wife, who was standing about 30 feet from Dodington. Unaware of the result of his first shot, Eddington fired again at Jones and this time wounded Ben Robinson, one bullet strik ing him in the breast and anoth er in the arm. A posse of farmers gathered, but Dodington had placed his wife and child in a buggy and taken them to the home of a farmer five miles away. He has surrendered to the sheriff at Anadarko and is now in the county jail. Mrs. J. C. Kimberlin was down from Tuckerman this morning ! for a short visit to her daughter. I Charles Meyer of the “Ladies' ! Shop’’ of Jonesboro, stopped off in our city Thursday and spent the day with friends en route home from Little Rock. Charles Smith and Geo. L.

HARROD KILLED BY AUTO Prominent Little Rock Attorney and Prominent Politician Loses Life. Special to Independent. Little Rock, July 11.—As he stepped from a street car at the corner of 15th street and Broad way just at noon today, Jas. H. Harrod. one of the best known lawyers and politicians in the state, was run down and instant ly killed by a touring car said to be driven by F. E. Madding of Pine Bluff. James Coates, a ten year old boy, was also struck and probably fatally wounded. It is stated that Madding had just purchased the car and was trying it out when he lost con trol in making a crossing, with the above fatal result. Judge Harrod is well known all over the state, and was a can didate for U. S. District Attor ney for the Eastern District of Arkansas. May Move Reform School. Special to Independent. Little Rock, July 11.—Unless some plan for making the pres ent reform school self sustain ing, the next legislature will probably be asked to abandon the present site and purchase one where the boys can be work ed at a profit. The present institution locat ed seven miles south of Little Rock, is located on 200 acres, most of which is on a slate ridge, which is absolutely untillable. There are a few acres which produce fairly well, but they will not raise a sufficient quantity of anything to operate the canning factory placed on the farm last year. The heating plant, the lighting and pumping stations, use wood for fuel, and the boys have about denuded the place, now digging up the stumps in order to supply fuel. Supt. Dea ton has been given the slabs from a small mill a short dis tance away, and these are being used to conserve the state’s tim ber. The handle factory which was placed on the farm last year can not be operated for lack of tim ber. If logs are purchased, the receipts from the sale of the finished product must go into th'e General Revenue fund. The money to pay for the logs must come from the maintain ance fund for the institution. Under this arrangement, the more logs purchased, the poorer becomes the institution, and the more money goes into the treas ury. The annual appropriation, is now only $15,500, against $21,000 for last year, conse quently Supt. Deason does not favor the purchase of logs. If the institution was located upon tillable land, the boys in carcerated there- could soon make it self-sustaining. The buildings and land now in use are valued at about $25,000, but the boys would make this back in a few years, if the location was changed. Drummond Sells Restaurant. Albert Drummond on Thurs day sold his restaurant and cole drink stand on Front street t< J. A.

I Special to Independent. | Conway, July 11—Special j provisions are now being made to care for young women stu ! dents at Hendrix College, ! through the remodeling of the home of former President A..

STANDRIDGE DON'T LIKE PRISON Left In McAlester Prison He Al most Made a New Door In Wall. Special to Independent. Little Rock. July 11.— Fifteen minutes more and Yates Stan dridge, the 52 year convict re turned to the Little Rock peni tentiary Thursday morning, would again have been a free man, but the timely arrival of Capt. Lem Smith at the .McAles ter jail prevented. Standridge, one of the most desperate men ever incarcerated in the Arkansas penitentiary, was arrested near Eufala, and Capt. Smith was sent by the pen itentiary authorities after him. The escape was turned over to the messenger and having sev eral hours to wait between trains at McAlester. Capt. Smith thought it would be safer to put Standridge in iail until train time. Capt. Smith was advised by the McAlester jailer that his building was too strong for any man to break out of, so he left Standridge and -went out to take a look at the town. He returned just in time to get his man. for only one course of brick in the exterior wall of the jail remain ed between the convict and lib erty. After being placed in the jail Standridge tore out a drain pipe and dimed up through the ceil ing. He found himself still in jail there, with little chances to break out. He then returned to the ground floor and discovered an ice pick with which he set to work on the wall. He had re moved brick sufficient to make a hole through which his body would pass, all except the outer course. Fifteen minutes later in the return of Captain Smith, and Standridge would still be at large instead of back on the State Farm, where he was taken Friday with a bunch of convicts recently received from Sebastian county. The penitentiary officials are now trying a new system on des perate men of Standridge’s class. There are twelve men in a squad, all of the kind who will make a break for liberty at the slightest, opportunity. They are under guard of the best free guards, with a rifle man in addition, and will not again be worked with the larger squads, for the offi cials do not intend to let them es cape again.
