Fatal Shooting.
Tom Hughie Shoots Bud Brawley in Cherokee County.

Near Cherokee Mills, just over the line in Cherokee county, late Saturday evening a difficulty occurred between Bud Brawley and Tom Hughie.

It started in a fisticuff and was said to have originated about Hughie’s wife, Brawley, if not really suspicioned, intimating an undue intimacy with her.

Brawley followed Hughie to his home and Hughie shut the door on him. Brawley was drinking and becoming much exasperated, picked up a stone in the yard and threw it with much force through the window. It is said to have struck Mrs. Hughie. Hughie, seizing his pistol, went to the door and opening it fired on Brawley, who was standing in the yard. The ball took effect and Brawley died from the wound about three o’clock Sunday evening. Both men stood well in their neighborhood. Brawly was a young man about 25 years old, while Hughie is about 30 years old and has been only a short while married. His wife is rather a handsome woman. Hughie had not been arrested up to Monday morning, though he made no attempt to leave. The killing is believed to have been wholly justifiable.
