A duel was ouce fought by two men named Shot! and Nott Nott was shot and Shott was not In this case it is Better to lie Shott than Nott. There was a rumor that Nott was not shot, but that Shott was shot notwithstanding. ( 'ircumstaucial evidence i- not always good. On trial it might aptcai that the shot Shott shot shot shott himself, when the w hole affair would be as at first, and Shott would be diot and Nott would be not. We think, how ever, that the shot Shott shot shot not Shott, but Nott; any way, it is hard to tell who was shot. Snyder County Assessment.
