    • Woodrow Fondren Died of Wound

      Mr. Woodrow Fondren, age 24, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Fondren, died at the hospital of a pistol shot wound, said to have been inflicted by Night Watchman D. N. Frazier Thursday night of last week. Fondren is reported to have attacked the watchman and to have had him down when the fatal shot was fired at close range entering under the jaw and coming out under the eye.

      Funeral service and burial were Saturday at Mt. Hermon. The entire tragedy is very much to be deplored by everyone.
