One day last week a shooting affair occurred at Lille between a negro and a white man, the former receiving a ball or two in the back. Rumor says the wounded man is doing very well.
Glad to learn that Mr. Dock Farrar’s money has been returned to the place of exit. Identity of person stealing or returning not know..
Log-rolling has begun in Cornie Fork and other places near by.
The small pox scare seems to be abating here, and what has been thought to be measles at Lillie is pronounced roseola. What a pity that people are not as afraid of “living” as they are of “dying”.
