It seemed to be purely provi
dential that W. F. 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.
Simmons was hastened to Turo
Infirmary where the balls were
extracted and after several days
of suffering was brought home
this week to recuperate.
