A dispatch lo Tho Nows and Cour
ier says thc colton mill village ill tho
eastern surbucbs ol' Marion was ter
ribly shocked by a double tragedy,
which occurred Friday morning as
a result of which one man is dead
and another dangerously wounded.
Al about S o'clock Luther Howitt,
a young man who had been un until
a few days ago, au employee in tho
mill, walked into the mill, where Ar
thur Stephens was at work, and alter
saying only a lew words to him tired
at him at a distance of about one or
two steps, the ball taking effect ill

his windpipe. Stephens immediately
ran, bul was shot again at a distance
ol' a lew steps, this ball hitting him
in I lu- back .inst over tho left shoul
der, causing him io fall.
Howitt, evidently thinking that, ho
had killed the man turned deliberate
ly and walked out of the mill and
toward his father's house, but when
within a short distance of his home,
turned the pistol and hied af his own
head, but missed tho first time. Tho
second attempt, however, was suc
cessful. He held the pistol to his
right tcmplo-nnd bred, killing him
