Th* tragedy wa* one of the Moodiest
that has ever occurred in this section. Dr

st.venal months ago Recently he decided
to leave town and return 10 Williamsport.
He sold a porno* ot hit furniture lo Mr.
Chambers. When settling the deal last
night b and Chambers came to blows
over an argument. Then Chamorro or
dered the doctor to leave his store. The
latter did so and returned noon after
itvards with a revbiver He told Cham
bers that one of the two must die right
speedily. Chambers, without rising from
his chair, fired. The doctor fell, but
arose qu-ckty. shot hack over hi* shoul

"That wa* a cowardly murder," crltd
-Bailey to Chambers, "and you will have
to kill me or I will kl.l you."
Chamber* raised Ids double-barta-ed

drop an egg through. He fell In the store,
but Chambers dragged Ihe body outside

Thompson, where he left them. There
they lay In the street until after niM
