Simmons es caped death at the hands of 11. C. Fussel on Wednesday evening, as four shots were fired at him at very close range, two penetrating the right arm and one entering the right side, tho striking the heavy muscle the ball ranged around the body which saved its being a death shot. It is said that following an al tercation the two men had the previous day, Mr. Simmons be lieved he was due an apology to Mr. Fussell and driving to the lat. ter's place of business he left his car and went into the house where Mr. Fussell was at work, with the intent he said of clearing up the hard feelings. Mr, Fussel how ever, seemed to believe Simmons was following the trouble up and instantly opened fire upon him with a gun he had in his work room; with the result above men. tioned. Simmons was hastened to Turo Infirmary where the balls were extracted and after several days of suffering was brought home this week to recuperate. Waverley Notes.
