A dispatch from Greenwood dated June 28th says: About 10:30 p. m. Saturday, Thomas Fahey was shot by John Nichols, Jr., as the outgrowth of an old grudge. Both are young farmers living south of Greenwood, and had been attending an exhibition there in the evening. After the show Fahey called Nichols out and asked him if he would retract a certain remark he had made. Nichols repleid that he would not, as it was true, whereupon Fahey, who is much the larger and stronger man, knocked Nochols down. Nichols sprang to his feet, drew a reveolver and shot Fahey through the neck, making a flesh woumd, barely missing the jugular vein. Nicholas immediately fled, and has not been seen since.
