The news of a a double and horrible trace- dy whioh oeourred in Delta county yes terday has just readied here. In Feb ruary of this year Miss Helen Taylor, daughter of a prominent aud woll-to-do farmer, married a young man named John King, who hailed trom Tonnes soe and was employed on her, father's tarm. Soon after marriazo tho couplu scorn- cd unhappily mated, quarreled and agreed to separate. This occurred on Sunday, and the wife retnrnod to her mother's homo, the father haying re cently died. Upon her arrival at tho home of her childhood she wroto her husband a touching letter in which her undying love for him was again told and requested that he return to Ten nessee, for although her love was un quenohed she could no longer bo his wire. The letter was reeived and read and the no doubt penitent husband went to see his equally stricken wife tho fol lowing Tuesduy and tried to effect a re newal of marital ties, but the nife was unmovabje. The next day ho renew ed his efforts' in the presence of tho mother and another lady, but again mot with refusal. After awhile Mrr Taylor and her companion retired, and in a fow moments Mrs. King was heard to scream. The sereain was followed by two pistol shots in closo succession and as the mother of the cirl aDDeired on the soene a shocking spectaolo was presented. Her loved daughter lay upon the floor dead, and close by her side was the corpse of her truant husband. He had killed his wifo and from tho same smoking pistol put an end to his own earthly misery.
