From what we can learn of the facts the deed was well planned, and that Head hud stated to purlics the duy before that he intended to commit the act. It seems tliat tho two men had been friends, and even at this time Bush did not suspect any ill will, but booth 1 men weie pay ing attention to the same woman, a Mrs. Donnie Kelley, and Head being of a more jealous turn of mind, allowed himself to to become I desperate. I The woman in question hud been ' living in their neighborhood, but lute- ' ly hud taken up her abode in Curutli ersville, it is said to escape the utten- lion of Head, but both men were desir-' ous of having her return to their neighborhood, and on Saturday both i men went to Caruthersville together, horseback, bent on the same purpose. I On Sunday they hired a livery rig jointly to bring tho woman back, but Hush accompanied the woman, Head riding horseback with tho livery boy, I who was to return with the rig to Ca-' ruthersvllle. Head and the livery boy arrived at,. Concord ahead of Hush and Mis. Kel ley, and when the two drove up theie. was some words about an exchange of pistols that had been made, but not in an amiry mood, both men were armed. When Hush and the woman staited to drive away Head filed font shots in rapid succession, all taking effect in the back of ISush, in range of the bpin column, causing almost instant death. The shots frightened the homes, which weie brought to a hall within about foity yuids by the woman. Realizing what lie had done, Head made the lemuik to bystanders that he would kill himbelf, and walking down the road to where the woman had stopped the horses, and looking at the Cot pse of Hush, he tinned away and tired a ball into his own brain, fioni the ell'ects ot which, he soon died. Dr. T. J. Tiuiitman was immediately called from Hayti. but when he ai liv ed on the scene Head was found to be beyond surgical aid. It does not seem from the informa tion at hand that the woman was to blame foi the killing, and a sliange coincidence istliat two men weie killed un hei account in Dunklin county not long ago.

HARD TIMES u "f . 18 2 a g 2 E T TALK About "Hard Times" unless you want to save money, and if you want to save money, be careful with your expen ditures. It pays to look be fore you leap and to investi gate before you buy. If I did not know that my prices would stand your investiga tion I certainly would not ask you to investigate. Come and get my prices. They tell their own story. 8 -" a 2 Q-B, S " 55 2 w " 3 O -J "Z" M 2-3- - 3 a -1 0 - P ft 3. 3 AVE It would be foolish for me to ask you to my store unless I know that my prices are right, and the reason you do not come is because you do not know. Of course you are perfectly honest in your opinion, and an honest mistake is the greatest mistake in the world and he hardest to over come. What I want is to convince you. Make out your bill and come and get my prices. If you will do this you'll find some of the leaks that make hard times harder and I may help you to save many dollars. Let's talk it over. L. O.
