day last week to move to another
farm. To this Jason A. Davis, mana

his landlord Mnngtlin refused to agree
to any proposition, and aided and
abetted by his wife, proceeded to make
an attack cm Mr. Davis with clubs
and knives, whereupon the batter drew
his pistol and fired on Doc. shooting
him in the thigh. Though not seri

the effect of bringing about a sudden
capitulation, Mangum changing his
mind about moving away that day.
