Word was received Tuesday
morning from Miller that a sonous
hhootirg affray took place r.o-tr

a fence corner , and thai on Monday
they met on the public roivd , about
a mile from Miller , when the shool-
ingbrgan. Merrimanas annul

twice , and the latter , together with
his two sons , who wore with him ,
