Careless shooting on the railroad line between here and Marion last Wednesday resulted in the death of a negro. It seems that two negroes were in some thick bushes at one side of the embankment. Another negro, the working partner of the man who was killed, was on top of the embankment and concluded to try the shooting qualities of his gun. His aim happened to be in the direction of the negroes in the bushes. A dead negro is the result of the shot. The negro who did the killing was brought to town Thursday for trial, when he accepted charge of manslaughter and waived preliminary trial, giving bond in the sum of $300 to await the action of the grand jury.
