The Sheriff's daughter, Miss JENNIE, went into the jail with BARTON's supper, when he threw her to one side and ran out. She at once raised the alarm but it appears that only one man, T.B. MOSS, made any effort to catch him. When he came back he
reported that he had been pursued all night by spooks and could not stand the racket any longer.
Some subscription hats are being circulated among the Farmers and Laborers Union men, as well as outsiders to raise some money for the bereaved family of the late Lausen FRAZIER. It is meeting with success. Having had a small salary in the area where he was employed, Mr. FRAZIER was unable to lay by anything, and we trust that those more fortunate assist the widow and orphans, who have been taken to the house of Rev. Sull FRAZIER where they will be made as comfortable as possible.
