Strange Ill Luck at Swords Creek.

A. A. Wysor, of Swords Creek, in Russell county, has had exceedingly bad luck recently with his live stock, having lost a fine span of mules for which he paid over five hundred dollars. One was overfed and died with colic; the other in rolling around in a field was fastened under a fence and hurt itself so badly that it had to be killed.

On the heels of this Mr. Wysor had a fine horse out grazing when a boy shot at a crow and hit the horse, killing it.

This all happened within ten days
