CRAZY WIFE USES PISTOL
KILLS HER HUSBAND AND THEIR
Turns Weapon Upon Herself "With
Deadly Effect Family Was
" Highly Respected.
EVERETT, "Wash., April 9. The most
shocking tragedy In the history of Ever
ett occurred soon -al wx 1 o'clock this
evening. Mrs. Shepard R. Bucey, wife of
the assistant cashier of the American Na
tional Bank, killed her husband, their
4-year-old son and herself.
In the parlor, with her head toward the
bay window, lay ihe form of Mrs. Bucey,
shot through the heart. By her side, only
a few feet away, was the 4-year-old boy,
Eugene, with a bullet hole through his
head. In the dining-room, adjoining the
parlor, was S. R. Bucey's body, with two
bullet holes behind his left ear. The
clenched hand of Mrs. Bucey still re
tained the smoking revolver when the
bodies were found.
The most reliable account of the trag
edy Is told by the house servant, Eliza
beth McNulty. She said:
"I was in the kitchen when Mrs, Bucey
3red the first shot. I started la, but, see
ing her coming with the revolver, I re
turned to the kitchen, where Mr. Bucey's
mother was with the 18-months-old baby.
At the second shot the old lady started
Into th room. Mrs. Bucey ran up to her
husband and fired to shots through his
head, behind the left ear. His mother
cried out: "Oh, sho has killed my boy
"Mr. Bucey came home from the bank
about 6:30 o'clock. Everything in the
house until the time of the shooting was
as pleasant as usual. Bucoy took his
wife to visit his uncle, Henry Bucey, in
Tacoma, last week, as Mrs. Bucey was
complaining of not feeling well. There is
no other cause which I an imagine but
Shepard R. Bucey was assistant cashier
of the American National Bank. He was
one of the meat respected young men of
the city. He had been a resident here for
a. "number of years. He was a nephew of
Henry Bucey, of Tacotaa,

PROVISIONS ARE NEEDED.
Persons Who Go to Thunder Moun
tain Should Have Full Supply.
BAKER CITY, Or., April 9. Charles
Stoltz, a well-known Baker City mer
chant, returned today from Salmon Mead
ows, 33 miles out from Council, the ter
minus of the Pacific &. Idaho Northern
Railroad. Mr. Stoltz said:
"I found at Salmon McaQows 150 men
preparing to go Into Thunder Mountain.
Some were preparing to make the trip
with donkeys, but most of them had to
go on foot. Owing to the melting of the
snow, the trail will be Impassable for at
least a month for teams, and It is about
all a mule can do to get over. I was told
by those who had just come out of Thun
der Mountain that It Is the height of
folly for any one to attempt to go In
with less than three or four months' sup
ply of provisions. Money cannot buy
grub at Thunder Mountain. There Is
nothing there for sale, and those who
have supplies are guarding them with
rifles. It will be CO days before any gen
eral supply of provisions can be put into
"I had a pleasant visit with 10 meh
who had just come out of Thunder Moun
tain. Among them was the general man
ager of the celebrated Dewey properties.
He told me they came out light, and
when they arrived at Salmon Meadows
they had only a box of sardines and a
few crackers. It took them seven days
to make the trip, and four days of that
time they had to sleep on the trail, as
they could not make a camp. He said
that Thunder Mountain was the greatest
mining camp ever discovered, but that he
and his party were compelled to come
out in order to get something to eat.
They will go bick as soon as they get
their supplies together. They strongly
recommend that any one going In should
bn provided with at least four months'
supply of provisions."

Chicken-Raiser Feeds His Fowls by
Aid of Electricity.
OLYMPIA, April 9. Walter Bernard, for
merly of this city, some months ago
secured a fmall tract of land on Cham
ber's Prairie, a few miles east of Olym
pla, and stocked the place with a few
dozen chickens. He has erected the us
ual fences and has divided the place
oft Into several different yards. As he
Is compelled to be away from home
during the day, he studied out a scheme
for caring for his chickens during his
Electricity was resorted to to conduct
the feeding of the chickens during his
absence, and it has proved eminently
successful. In each yard he has erected
troughs to hold food for the hens, and
these troughs are connected by wire
with his house. Within the house Mr.
Bernard has connected the wire with
an alarm clock, with the usual battery
attachment. When he leaves home In
the morning he sets the alarm clock
at the hour for feeding the chickens,
and by an ingenious arrangement when
the proper time arrives the alarm goes
off, the connecting wire releases- the
troughs and the chickens make a rush
for their feed, which Is spread before
them as If Mr. Bernard did the job In
person. Chicken-raising by electricity is
n. novelty, but Mr. Bernard says It
would not be profitable If he had to re
main with hla fowls all day.
