BLOODLESS WARFARE AT LEXINGTON. Lexington, Ky., November 19. Edward Corrigan and Dr. Arnold Frank came to blows in the post-office this afternoon, but neither was injured. Dr. Frank Is a German horseman who came here several months ago and set up an establishment for the handling of driving horses. About six weeks ago he bought a cast-ofE thoroughbred belonging to Mr. Corrigan from John Mackey. At the time Mr. Corrigan told Frank he had better look the hoo over carefully, that he might not like him. Dr. Frank, however, said the horse suited him. Last Sunday Dr. Frank tried to sell the horse to L. Blum, of Mexico. Blum discovered that he had a ringbone. Today Frank met Corrigan and told him that he wanted him to take the horse back. Corrigan declined to. The lie was passed and Frank struck Corrigan. The Master of Hawthorne sent his right to the Germans jaw and was about to follow with a left swing when a bystander rushed up and called his attention to the fact that there were ladies present. The two walked away and the N scene ended.
