ASSAULTED HIS FATHER

Joseph Meyers, of near Sedalia, is reported to have assaulted and fatally injured his father, who is over 80 years of age.
The father made an ante-mortem statement to County Attorney Hoffman. The prisoner has maintained from the first that he acted in self-defense, as his father was about to assault him with a knife. This is denied by the dying man, who sets forth that his son followed him quite a distance in order that he might make the assault.

FATAL SHOOTING NEAR OWL CREEK

Last Tuesday morning about 10 o'clock, a fatal shooting occurred on the highway between Desloge and Gumbo, at a point on the road near where the descent of the hill or incline approaches Owl Creek.

George Wigger, Jr., a son of George Wigger, Sr., in the company of Roy Welch, were on the way toward Gumbo when an altercation arose in some way and culminated in Wigger shooting Welch fatally. He died in a few hours.
Wigger was apprehended soon after the shooting by an officer of the law, Mr. Thompson, and brought to the County Bastile where he was incarcerated to await trial.
The frequent occurrence of this sort of tragedy is to be deplored as it tends to create a bad impression of the locality.

ASSAULTED A CRIPPLE

Fred Wolfe was fined $5 and costs in police court yesterday morning for assaulting Robert Currans, a cripple.
The assault took place at a dance held last Thursday night at Ninth street and Minnesota avenue. Wolfe had been ejected from the dance hall, and sought revenge by knocking Currans down and kicking him.
A great deal of complaint has been made recently by various social societies that have been holding dances, against a gang of toughs which has been making a practice of breaking up social hops. It is understood that several state warrants will be issued against members of this gang and state cases made against them.
