Some four months ago the an

various individuals that Red Cloud wa

journalism, using all sortt of vile in-stuuation-i
that bore the ear mirks of
numerous malcontenU who seemed to
have crowa to pick: and still the people
fairly supported the paper, hoping thai
in the end the editor would come
down to decent journalism. However,
it seemed impossible :or his friends to
sit down on him. and as fast a.1 one

that he held a warranty deed tor a cer

at "the table, when King enteted the
dining room, and witii Irs usual ar
rogance and insolence oruered the
Doctor to vacate the seat he Wa-, Owcu

declined to do. Hot words ensued, but
the matter was finally dropped. A i
short time afterwards, while the Doc

store King clipped up behind him and
dealt him a seveio blow on the head
with a loaded cane or club, knocking
him down and leaving him m an
almost inscu-ihlu .-o-'dition. After
felling his victim to the earth the
cow.udly assailant took to his heel
like a whipped cur. and went to Sheriff
Warren and gave himself up, saying:

Haird, where he is still lying. At

On last Wcdne-day the old sett ler
