ALMOST A MUBDER! jerome noggle -is strltck on the head by buck holler at the sand pit on thursday, and has his skull fractured in three places. An aflray took place at the sand-pit, below town,on Thursday afternoon, between "Buck" Holler and Jerome Noggle, two workmen on the L. N. A. & C. R. R., which resulted in the probable fatal wounding of" the latter. The facts, as we gather, them, are as follows: Noggle was lying in the caboose asleep, when Holler came in and awakened him. Noggle became enraged at this, and struck Holler a blow in the face. H. said nothing at the time, but in a short while afterward (probably five or ten minute?) seized a stick of stove wood and struck Noggle several terrific blows on the head, fracturing his skull in three places, and knocking him out of the door of the car. The wounded man was taken to his heme in Salem, and it is thought he cannot survive his injuries. Another version of the affair is that the quarrel originated in regard to a deck of cards which "Noggle had borrowed from Holler. Holler's whereabouts at last accounts were not known'.
