avjea brought by Pulasky, a Jewish
peddler, against Messrs . R. D. Nance
and Carroll Nnnro, father and sou,
prominent business men and citizens of
Cross Hill, for ttn thousand dollars,
five thousand each. The cases were

against the elder Nance a verdici was
returned in bis favor while a vcid'ct
for a small amount, twenty-five dollars,
was given tbo Plaintiff in the caso
bgainst Cnrroll D. Nance.
Briefly st ttcd, it seems Iba'. Pulask.v .
the peddler, had been ordered to stay
olT the Nance premises. This warning
the Jew ignored and soon afterwards
lie re-visited the parties at the same
plao offering to s 11 bis wares, pursu

of bis presence on the premises, Mr.
H D, Nance at once sought to eject tbo
P'ddler and in doing so he struck Pul
nsky several times with a whip. I'nl
asky immediately proceeded to get out
a warrant for the arrest of Mr. Nance,
charging assault. About tbis time Car
roll I). Nance heard of tbo affair and
of the Jew's effort to have bis lather
arrested and he, too, took a hand.
Meeting up with tbo paddior at the de
pot young Nance redout u his conduct
and struck Pulasky one b"ow with his
