Batson's prairie, and proceeded to the house for the purpose. Chesher commenced the attack by raising a gun to shoot Dark. The latter knocked the gun aside, and the discharge wounded his wife, though not seriously. He then seized a gun and shot Chesher dead. A faithful negro man of Dark's then came to the assistance of his master, but was shot and badly wounded by one of the remaining robbers. Dark having another loaded gun at hand, succeeded in putting them to flight. The alarm being given, a company from liberty turned out, caught Magins in Hardin, and Willis in Jasper county, and hung them both.
