have ociurred yesterday. Ills
wound was considered uior'iil
when he wa taken from the si cue

Thy shooting occurred when the
shooter was leaving it well at
which he bail Hred a shot. Two
of tin number who had Iieeti
watehtiig the shooting from -i dis-

other.! had left and when the
shooter started away stepped up
to him itnd demanded Ids money.

him the shooter knocked the gun
of tho ether mau from his hand
and yal his own out tiring two
shots Into the body of the holdup
before be could rceover lilt (.tin.
The !:' oiid hold-up man apparent-

This I the story with the addi-
tion that the wounded man w.i
left on the ground while the shoot-
er wont baik to the well to tell of
the affair. When he returned with
help from the well they saw a
body being put In a machine and
the latter driving uwny.
