Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 10/29/1907.

In an altercation Thursday night at Brooksville, the participants, Homer Knight and a young man by the name of Ingram were pretty badly used up.  Knight was cut a severe gash across the wrist from which he lost a great deal of blood, and Ingram was struck in the face with a bottle of shot, the bottle breaking and cutting him badly.  No arrests have been made.
