YOUNG WOMAN ;
Shock of Finding !Her Fiance
Untrue Proves Too Much :
for Her to Endure.
SLIGHT HOPE OF RECOVERY
Fired Vive Ilnllets Into Her I (roast
Tried to Commit Suicide- With
Tlio knowledge that her fiance was
untrue- to her caused Mrs. Olive Luii l
quist to attempt to kill herself early,
this morning and she wounded hersoif
io severely thai :;ho has a very small
dinner i" recovery. Mrs. Lundquist Ut
u young widow aged 27 years. Slf
resides at li't Fourteenth-and-a-half
street with Mr. and Mrs. II. I Pfennin
ger front whom she rents part of thei.
hoii.se. Early ihis morning about :3n
Mr. Pfenninger heard a noise in Mrs
Lundquiofs room and minute late,
a shot was fired. He suspected whnt
had happened and jumped from bed
and ran to her room,' but the door was
locked anl he was unable to set in.
The first shot was followed by four
more and then all was quiet in the
Tried Vorphlnc Virt.
Physicians were called at once and
when they arrived an.l the door had
been opened they found her lying on
the floor almost dead. Five bu'lo's
had been fired and three of them hnd
entered her Inn?- and one had
gone entirely throngli. A box
containing morphine tablets was
found in the room and the doctors
expressed an opinion that he had first
tried to do away with herself by taking
the drug, but that she decided to man'
sure of accomplishing her purpose and
the shooting followed.. She was re
moved to the hospital in the city am
bulance at once, and she lies ther?
today with lass than one chance In a
hundred of recovery.
In a Very. Sail Cne.
Mrs. Lundquist s life although short
has been crowded full of sadness, and
r-nd has won her the fiiendship anl
sympathy of a large number of people.
She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs
J. J. McGiuis who reside at Viola. HI.,
and who are on their witv here now.
"When she was a mere child of 15 yeari
she was united in marriage with the
son of a neighboiing farmer name.l
Lundquist, the match being the w'.-h
of the parents of both the young peo
pie. They were given a sum of money
to begin life with and they went to
the west and settled on a ranch, bit'
Lundquist went bad after a while an I
made the life of his girl wife misera
ble. She finally left him and secured
a divorce and the custody of her child,
a lad no 10 years old who lives with
his mother's parents at Viola. Sho
came to this city after a time and had
various employments. She was a wait
ress at the Young & McCombs grill
room recently until a severe spoil of
sickness caused her to give up her po
sition. She was ill for some time, be
ing in bed for two weeks before re
covering, but she finally did recover
and had the promise of a good posi
tion whenever she was ready to go to
Pound Finnce Vntrne.
Then came the shock which caused
her to seek, her own death. After re
covering she made the discovery that
the young man to whom she had been
engaged for several months, and whom
she dearly' loved had been untrue io
her and was not worthy of her affec
tion. She had given her whole heart
to the young man and the ?hock was
too much to bear and she at once de
termined to make away with herself,
and from all indications her attempt
will he successful, although it was re
ported this noon that she had showed
forac signs of improvement.

Quincy, 111.. Sept. 2. (Special).
When the republican committee rep

Fourth judicial district met at 2:30
this afternoon to fill the vacancy on
the ticket caused by the withdrawal
of Supreme Court Candidate David
E. Mack, there was every indication
that it had been framed up for Mil

Senator Berry had laid his wires
to land John E. Wall of Quincy but
Wall refused to accept the nomina

and Berry then tried to drag in J.
B. Brown of Monmouth. Mr. Brown
also objected to the use of his name
and thus McClure was the only one
of the three original candidates ac
