Cupid Suffers Serious Setback in 1911


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 6/20/1911.

A serious cutting affray is reported from the West Fork, near Orma.  Particulars are meagre.  A young man by the name of McCune wanted to marry a damsel by the name of Lane, but her brother had objections and a controversey arose.  The report is that McCune fired two shots with a revolver at Lane, when Lane drew a knife and proceeded to carve McCune up.  It is reported that McCune then fired two more shots, none of the four taking effect.  McCune is reported to be in a very serious condition.
