At the breakfast table at Haman's Hotel, Greensburg, Ind., C. C. Edwards, a dry goods merchant, occupied the seat or honor next to a fascinating and beautiful widow boarder. Dr. H Lee Millican, who is in love with the widow, wanted Mr. Edwards to exchange seats. This Mr. Edwards refused to do. Some hot words followed as to each gentleman's respective rights to a seat next to the lady, and It ended by the doctor flooring the merchant by a blow between the eyes. The case was then appealed to a justice's court, where it was settled to the satisfaction of all concerned.
