Monroe Grilling was shot and killed by sxoe
tItthesrn.law Mr G. G. H. Dunn, at the o w
SMldenceot the latter in the lower lpor- pflo
h tioun of this parish. The lparticulars of wae
Stblsad tragedy are as follows: Mon

Shaing married his daughter who died i
Sseveral pars ago. Two years since, he
madrted 'is Dunn's ytnger ldaughter,

not to come inside, but G;rifing still ad

who fell, but not dead, one shot going
drlirectly through the body sideways,

corpse says would certainly have caused,
dleath. Dunn then took a piece of boardl
and beat him over the head with it,
lacerating the sealp severely. Mr. Grit- MY
ring died in a few minutes. We append th ln
Mr. Dunn's statement before the Coron ever b
er's inquest, which was held Monday
night. -"lHe asked me ifI was going onlgy
togin to-day. I told him the weather propon
was fine, and that I could not gin. Hie
