At 10:30 yesterday morning, Peter
Shannon shot and killed his wife and a
moment afterward shot and killed him
self. The tragedy occured at a small
board injr-housc at the northeast corner of
Eighteenth and R streets. As far as the
facts in the case can be learned it seems
to have been a most brutal cold-blooded
murder, committed by a human monster,
the only palliating circumstances about
the affair being that he had the grace to
do away with his own worthless life.
Shannon was alout GO years old and his
wife about C. They had been married
only a year, and Shannon seemed insane
ly jealous of his wife without cause.

alighted to open the door of his hack,

him, and the other, taking his whip
from the socket, proceeded to lay it on
over his head and shoulders with great
vigor. After receiving a small taste of
what he richly deserved, he managed to
escape, and jumping on his hack drove
off, leaving his whip as a trophy in the
hands of the young woman. The scene

There is deep disappointment in the
bosoms of an hundred pupils of the
Hiilslxiro public school. Sme arrange
ments had been made for an entertain
Dient by the school on the evening of the
close of the present school year, and
bright expectancy lighted the features of
merry and ambitious youth. A few
parties outside the school had kindly
consented to assist in the music and the
entertainment was looked forward to
with interest by pupils and patrons of
the school. But through some influence
the little refreshment from dry study has
fallen to wreck. Entertainment or ex
hibitions are to lie condemned in but
one event -that is when tliey take place
during the terms and when the pupils'
tn'ndsare- or should le centered lijxin
the studies pursued in the schoolroom
At the end of a term or school year, they
are proper and should Ins encourage!. It
is then that parents and patrons of the
sertool may attend aitd witness the pro
gress made by those receiving instrue
t ion. It is then that the generalship
and ability of the teacher to properly
instruct in not only the text hooks Lot
decorum, gentility, etc., may le wit
nessed by parents and others interested
and taxed to support schools. When
everything that will call public attention
to ur public schools in eschewed, it is
time sweeping investigations le made.
Is there tM much tardiness in our
school? Is there liltle o,- no enthusiasm
on the part of both parents and pupils?
These complaints have been made; we
make no charges. I.et this matter be
investigated. It is due to the teachers
and to the public.
