A Terrific Fight With Knives

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 12.—Particulars of a horrible duel with knives in Clark County have just been received here. It appears that Charles Wright and Jasper Owens, two young men, got into a quarrel while at work in a cotton field. Each drew a knife, and, advancing towards each other, a terrific fight commenced. Both were cut severely. The fight terminated in Wright plunging his knife to the hilt in the side of his antagonist. He fell on the ground mortally wounded. Wright gave himself up claiming that he acted in self-defense. He is highly connected.
