The wrangling continued and fin
ally Hall told Haines to go home.
The latter threatened tho old gen
tleman with a chair and Hall got
to his room and secured his gun.
Miss Leonard came from her
room and found the two men at

trying to get his hands on the

Miss Leonard is not a relative
of Mr. Hall's as has been report
ed, but has been with the family
for many years. They formerly
resided in California but Mr.
Hall was advised by physicians
to seek a higher altitude for the
benefit of his health and when
ho decided to come here he invit
ed Miss Leonard, whom he looks
upon in the light of a daughter,
to come along and get some land.
She has a place adjoining him
and as his health is poor she has
looked after his household duties
since they came. Mr. Hall's
wife is still in California.

figured in the cause of the shoot
