A Serious Cutting
A stabbing affray was pulled
off down in Sulpher Bend, about
seven miles southeast of town,
last Saturday evening, which is
regarded as a rather serious one.
A crowd of people were return-
ing from Hickory Grove, where
they had been attending a funer-
al, when they eame upon John
Rex and a man named Ash, who
wera under the influence of in-
toxicants. They accosted one
Dug Hampton, so it is claimed,
and a fight ensued and Hamp-
ton used his knife on Rex, stab-
bing him a number of times. Dr.
Edwards was called and dressed
his wounds and pronounced
them quite dangerous. Hamp-
ton came to town and surren-
dered himself to Justice Teste-
man, who placed him under a
$800 bond, which he readily
filled, and he was allowed his lib-
erty. Other parties then swore
to complaints against Rex and
Ash for disturbance and there is
no telling where the matter all
A Regular Blizzard
This community witnessed one j
of the worst blizzards last Tues- j
day of the winter. At about
daylight a drizzling rain began
to fall which soon turned to
snow and was accompanied by a
fierce gale that kept up the
whole day long and all night.
Snow drifted to several feet deep
in places and would have been
about ten inches deep on a level.
One very peculiar and unusual
feature of the storm was that it
was accompanied by much elec-
tricity and the flashes of light-
ning and the roar of thunder
made a very singular phenome.

wholly abandoned for about 48
hours and have not yet got back

everything has been in a iness of

over five states.

No New Railroad News
There are no new developments
i railroad matters since our
last issue. On account of the
whole country being tied up with
the snow storm there is nothing
Unconfirmed reports have it
that Miami is still trying to raise
the necessary amount of money
to secure the road, and the fact
that Mr. Walters was back there
the first of the week lends color
to the report.
The News endeavored to get
some reliable information over
the long distance telephone yes-
terday evening, but our efforts
were futile. Mr. Walters had
gone to Kansas City, and nojone
else seemed to know anything
about the matter. Owing to the
general tie-up all over the coun-
try we could hardly expect much
developments, and we go to
press without anything new to

Rev. Wiley writes that the
Missionary Conference to be held
here next week, was brought here
as a special favor to this church
and with the hope that it will be
of much help to the church, and
that tliey desire thatevery mem-
ber attend every service. They
