Clipped From Asheville Citizen-Times
-ing ltentons-ville of on Louis-burg, A WHO SHIJION The "Free I.ance" Hang, to a I'oor Antunieiit From the Marion Free I.ance. Week before last the Mai ion I'rrc Lance stated that a tree under which a party ol unli-l'rohibiiionists unli-l'rohibiiionists unli-l'rohibiiionists had taken refuge at an election pteeiiie t in McDowell McDowell count y, was struck by lightning and one man was killed oiiliiuht, several several othcis licing badly hurt. The Free La nee the ii went on to moralize somewhat, somewhat, pointing tint this circumstance as a warning. Last week the Marion I . conl lather took the wind out ol the Free Lance's sci nioii, by proving that the man killed was the only I'roluhi- I'roluhi- tionist in the crowd. Well ! Shelby Review. The Review is a little "oil" in regard to the Record proving anything. The only proeif was its editor's word. Esq. D. L. Clements told us this week that he nnd others talked to the gentleman who was killed only a very short while before the fatal stroke of lightning and tried to get him to vote the dry (no license) ticket; toltl linn 1 lint ne was getting oui and that tha. might Ik- Ik- the last vote he would ever cast. 1 hey talked to tlie old gentleman, but he told them that he w as going to vote the license ( wet I ticket and that he would not belong to any party thntdid not have enough inrntliers to hold an election, and rather made Inn ol the dry ( no license) men because they couldn't get enough nun to hold the election. So vou sec no wind has has lieen taken out ol" the Free Lance's sermon.
