Suicide in Paulding.

Rockmart, Nov. 25—James Lee, of Paulding county, committed suicide yesterday morning by hanging himself. No cause can be attributed for his rash act. He was out of debt, a good liver and, as every one thought, contented and happy.

Last Sunday morning Mr. Ed White found Mr. Dock Holcombe’s cattle roving over his farm, and damaging his ungathered crop, whereupon White made complaint to Holcombe. The men engaged in a quarrel and Holcombe drew a knife and commenced to make advances on White. White also drew his knife, and the two men began cutting each other.

Both men are badly cut, and White is probably fatally so.
