noon shortly after 3 o'clock, when a
team belonging to the R. C. Benson
Feed company became frightened at
the shouts of the roisters and began
a mad dash, which ended with a tele
phone pole collision. The wagon
struck a pole at the extreme southern
end of the Central Hose comnanv'B
lawn, splitting It in two and snapp
a number or wires. Linemen were
immediately called, and the damage
was repaired.
The team was driven by Bert Ben
son and had been allowed to stand un
hitched opposite the Silverman gro
cery store, while Mr. Benson made a
delivery. While the driver was still
inside the store, the auto came along
from the south at a high rate of
speed. The horses had started to
walk towards the drinking fountain at
the center of the square. The occu
pants of the machine Immediately
stood up waving their hats and shout
ing at the animals, who became fright

terminated with the collision. The
tongue of the wagon was smashed.
declared he was glad the revolver

"I am glad now I did not kill him,"
he said. "When I went in and saw
him with his ans around my wife I
w-as so crazed with anger that I shot
I then notified the police and when
they arrived we started for headquar
ters." "The man came Into the house and
attempted to kiss me." said Mrs. Clay
ton. "I told him to leave and that I
would tell my husband cf his attempt.
Then he threw his arms about me and

Indiana Doctor Comes Home to
Find Wagon Driver Caress
ing Wife.
Indianapolis. Ind., Sept. 16. Arriv
ing at his home and, as he alleges,
finding Joseph Stout, employe of the
National Refining company," kissing
his wife, Dr. C. M. Clayton, of 2503
Brookalde avenue, a prominent Indi
anapolis physician, shot Stout, was
placed under arrest, and while on the
way to police headquarters in his auto
mobile raff down Kay Deering, a
year old boy.
The wounded man and the injured
boy were taken to the city hospital
in the police emergency wagon, while
Dr. Clayton and his wife drove their
car to police headquarters. The coy
is badly hurt, but Stout's wounds are
not thought to be serious.
Dr. Cluyton found the driveway to
Ms garage blocked by a driverless
oil wageu when he returned home. He
Bays he sot out of his car and walked
around the house. Thn he saw Stout
throw his arms about Mrs. Clayton
Jun inside the kitchen door ami kiss
her. Mrs. Clayton appeared to be try
ing to force the man away, he said.
Drawing a small automatic revolver
he carried, Clayton opened fire on
Stout. When one shot was fired the
safety device on the gun was sprung
and Dr. Clayton says he was not able
to fire again though he tried to empty
the gun at Stout, who ran from the
houne.
Stout, according to his story, went
to the Clayton home to collect for the
National Uil company, for which he
drives a wagon. '
"As I was standing In the doorway
talking with Mrs. Clayton. Clayton fir
ed." he said. "I think the doctor was
a little hasty. I was doing nothing
wrong. We were only cutting up, as
I am in the habit of doing. Perhaps
he was tired of having me come around
to collect a bill he owes the firm. It
has been owing for three months."
Dr. Clayton's version of the affair
differs.
"Ifo first said, 'O. you baby doll.' to
my wife," declared the doctor, "and
then he grabbed her In bis arms and
hugged her. It was then that I en
tered the room. When he saw me he
started to run. Getting my revolver
I followed and fired."
The shot penetrated Stout's arm.
