Like all the pre- v r ceding episodes in this long- ( standing vendetta, the last is a I harrowing one, and shows the N leirible brutishness and hell | I nound vim of these determined ltd desperate characters ol the . | mountain gorges along the bor- \ ders of the two Virginias and | Kentucky. f] A double tragedy, most horri . ble in alt its details, has just been ( r enacted at the little lint which \ Mrs. James Daniels, widow ol a c I desperado who died with hiitoots on, the mother of the j | notorious Lark McOov, one ol the t ' leaders in i lie latter named fac k lion, calls home. This widow is | ' mother ol a lari^e family ot grown I op children, and many men have I come to an untimely death he j tore the too true aim of their I | t rust v Winchesters. The first murder was commit- j I led in the cabin ol Mrs Daniels, } ami the second only a short distance away. For several weeks 1 the old widow has been harbor- i | my an outlaw nmiiuil >? >??

I While Billiter and several mem hers of the Daniels family were'a | -eatetl at the dinner table last ( r ^ 1 Wednesday, Frank Jackson, a I son in law ot .Mrs. Daniels, made a remark that did not please the ' guerilla hoarder. Without a 51 word of resentment or any t x-1 I ore sion of warning, Milliter I ii- i reached around and grabbing up | his notched ritle, sent a 44 eali j lire ball crashing throuirh .lack I | -on's breast, killing him instant J i I v. Backing out ot the door, | with his pin leveled at the other 1 members ol the household, Hi Hi- i I ter made his escape to the top ol ' a towering mountain nearby. The j. Daniels armed themselves and l followed the fleeing criminal, h i shortly afterwards surrounding s r|him. Milliter fired one shot at ' his pursuer*, the bullet, passing through the hat of one of the ' I party. The enemy returned the i fire and 8am Biiliter fell dead : 1 with several ounces of lead in his H | brawny body. The Daniels boys ) look the lifeless form by the feet ^ and dragged it down the steep ? | mountain side to the house of n , their mother, half a mile below, j1 After reaching the little cabin 11 the household formed a proces- t linn inH ?itV. ?
