Quit an amusing affray lent Itt ridic

day of last week t amusing at well as

and bia wife wer having aoau difficulty
In tha barroom of Sstter't hotel. Van
Ordstrand struck bar several tlmea when
O. 8. Maiwell, of thit place, interfered,
which caused worda to ba passed between
th men. Van Ordstrand called Max
well a liar, when Maxwell struck hint
in lb far with bit flit. VanOrdttrtnd
laid bold of tha dinner bell, which waa
lying on a table near, and t truck Max

blow on tha bead, cutting the scalp at
each blow, until th man waa well
bashed to pieces, when Irienda Interfered
and parted them. Th injuries of
neither roan are aeriout.
A ditpute, which ended in a few tlapa
and alight bruises, occurred at a tale of
tome sheep at O. L. Fraselt'a p'soo on
Gird creek. A man by tba name of Pet

for bit wages, which amounted to f3.3d.

called him a liar. He retorted by saying,
"Whll I have been t that, what you

The testimony before the coroner's
Jury yesterday It too voluminous to
print. In substance it it that Keady'a
train wat on the tide-track, that the
twitch bad been left open neceessrily to
allow Ready to back his train. The
principal point to lie decided was at to
who wat to blame for the accident, and
under the ruled of the company the
blame seems to fall on the brakeman
and condnelcr of the freight, and partly
on Ready himself. Wc fay seems to,
liecaus we know nothing of those rule,
but this is th Inference given by the
witncfses. There Is no question at to

that Kiigtneer Sherman did not put on

fact Sherman supposed the track waa

Whoever of the trainmen may be to
