Article title:  Shot to Scare but Hit the Mark

Notes or transcript:  “George King, who lives on James Stewart’s farm two and one half miles west of Dotham, shot and slightly wounded Allen Barlow last Tuesday. From what we can hear Barlow entered King’s turnip patch to get a turnip to eat and was seen by the owner who, more for fun it seems, shot at him with a 22 calibre rifle. The shot took effect in one of Barlow’s legs but he was at such a great distance the wound was very slight. Barlow had King arrested and the trial was held in Fairfax yesterday but we are unable to give particulars in this issue.”
