twine to" use it annually to the ex-

Traded for n Farm.
Real estate agents, Messrs.
Kollman and Duncan,' this week
effected a trade between J. L.
Bailey and J. M. Roberts, of
Prairie Dell, in which the former
exchanged his residence here for
thelatter's farm, near Prairie Dell,-
Mrs. Shrock, who returned
yesterday from Rookdale, re-
ports that M. F. Magee, a well to
do farmer of Jonah was fatally
shot near Rockdale yesterday
morning. Mr. Magee and .others
were in that section picking dew-
berries and recreating, and had
camped near town, near a farm
house, It seems that the landlord
of the place had a quarrel with
his tenant, who with his family
were keeping house for him (the
landlord). The landlord had
had some diffioulty with the ten-
ant, the result of which was that
the iandlond shot at the tenant,
and wounded tho tenent's wife
and child. Mr. Magee went up
to the house while tho fracas was
in progress and tho tenant shot
him, wheather by design or acci-
dent is not known. T-ho renult
to Mr. McGee, however, was that
he received a bullet, partially
severing the jugular vain, whioh
ip very dangerous. Tho severity
of the wounds to tho woman and
child is not stated.
