Gunfight in Crittenden

Crittenden, Ky., April 4 - Harvey Sanders, of Crittenden, Ky., and Dave T. Franks, of Mt. Zion, Ky., had a quarrel Saturday afternoon at Crittenden over some former trouble.  Dave T. Franks went to his home, about three miles away, for his shotgun, and on his return met Sanders in Sechrist's saloon and renewed the quarrel, when the bartender put them both out and shut the door, when four shots were heard, and going out he found Franks lying dead in the street with a bullet hole behind his left ear.  Frank's shotgun and Sanders have both disappeared.  Franks leaves a wife and six children.
