Almost a Tragedy.
Mrs. Minn Brown was shot on. Tues

been fired tho bullet was partly spent,
however it pierced her clothing and

that tho bullet had'spont its force, as
its course was almost straight to tho
heart. At tho time tho bullet struck
her sho was working in tho Kitchen

of looking over tho record of tho night

which called him thero. A short scrim
mago ensued, after which Carroll or
dered Jailer Caldwell to look Rich
mond up for croating a dlsturbanco.
Richmond submitted to arrest peace-
ably enough, but had hardly got com-fortabiy-tocatcd

A lady who was billed to uivo an el
