    • Two Men Instantly Killed.
      Three Others Badly Wounded and May Die.

      At Burn's sale, near Campobello, Monday there was a regular war. W. H. Parris and Henry Fisher were shot and instantly killed. Two or three others are badly wounded and expected to die. Last week, near New Prospect, Henry Fisher and a young man named Johnson, attempted to arrest Parris, who had some whiskey in a wagon. He and his father resisted.  They all met at Tom Burn's sale Monday and renewed the quarrel. There was plenty of whiskey on the ground and when they got pretty full they began to shoot. It is supposed that Fisher was acting as a United States Marshall, or a state constable. The Coroner went there yesterday. Sherrif Dean had the warrants placed in his hands up to one o'clock Tuesday. It reminds one of the old times they used to have up there. It is believed that Tom Calmes shot Parris, but it is not known who shot Fisher or the others.
