Whitworth got the rifle from Hoskins, took rest on the corner of the house and fired twice at McCarty as he ran. At the second shot McCarty fell, shot through the fleshy part of both legs. He crawled through the cotton to a road, about 100 or 200 yards distant. A negro or two were there and helped him through the fence and on to a mule and carried him to a friends house. Messrs.
