Billman two young people residing
near Numedia were mistaken for
robbers by Alexander Wardrop
Friday night and came within an
ace of bcine killed. The couple
were out enjoying a pleasure drive,

of the traces broke and Doty alight-
ca to repair it. l be conversation
between he and his lady friend
reached the ears of Wardrof who
arose, glanced out of the window
and discovered the horse. Think
incr that theft was boinc nernotrat-
---o o f I
ed he hurriedly awakened his son
and raising a window called to
Doty to stand. Doty, having re
paired the break in the harness
paid no heed to the command and
getting into the buggy proceeded
to leave. Wardrop then ordered
his son Jto shoot. The response
was prompt and both barrels of a
shot gun were discharged. The
contents took effect in their faces
and necks. The horse stopped and
Wardrop ran out. He was horri
fied when he discovered the mis
take. Both were bleeding profuse
ly, almost the whole side of each of
their faces and necks having been
A physician was summoned who
removed twenty-six shot from the
headj and shoulder of Doty and
fourteen from Miss Uillman s Head,
neck, face and shoulders. Both
were quite ill from the effects of
the wounds, but their condition
was at no time alarming. Had the
gun been loaded with anything but
fine bird shot it is very likely that
both would have been killed.
The affair is given a romautic
tinge by the fact that the couple
were on their way to Fishcrdale
where thev were to have been
quietly married on Saturday. The
mishap caused a postponement, but
if renorts are true it was only
temporary, as it is said the knot was
tied at the home ot the brutes
