So suddenly did the shoot ing commence and no unexpected was the attack that the officer were tak en by surprise, and it la a great won der that some of tho party were nt kUUnl. a thi distance between tho two parties was not more than fifty feet. The first two shot fired passed between Sheriff Grant and "Chero kee'' who were working aide by side, and so close to "Cherokee" that one bullet passed through the leg of his trousers and Just grazed the flesh, the other going through tho skirt of his coat. By this time Sheriff Urant had re covered from his surprise and opeued fire, and not a minute too soon, for the delay of another second lutein Lave cost his life. Carter, who had Just drawn a bead on the officer, was not quick enough, for as he aimed his weapon, Grant sent a Win chester 30-30 bullet crashing into the brain of the outlaw who fell dead in his tracks. Just how true a shot Grant is was evidenced on examination of the -body when it was found that the bul let which penetrated the brain had first passed through the thumb of the right hand, in which he held the pistol, piercing the little finger, shat tering the handle of the gun, then striking the victim squarely between the eyes. Those who witnessed the shooting pronounced it the quickest and most accurate shot they had ev-' er seen, and -many were the congrat ulations that he received from' the other officers who were engaged in the hunt, as well as citizens in gen eral. In speaking of the instance, Sheriff Grant said that "he just had to do something as the bullets from Vi,;":; tlt savers to the pastry cook. fiwtV Economizes flour, butter v v i ' era ccfis and xv.akes tho iXJ food dlsesUUe and healthful J i r ' iw t r -w r r rv?nir mrts! healthful food ( No alum no lime phosphates TKo w ftUn0 nowder made 1V - m r r"rm of Tartar - irom nujuu - the convicts' guns wre conilna en tirely too close to him for comfort." In tho mean time "Cherokee", Mar shal Ftagles and Constable Hamilton, the other members of the Grant par ty, had recovered sufficiently to K'"t in the game, and as a rexult, Albert Ferris was seriously wounded, lie b lug hit twlce.One bullet went thrmmh the body Just below the heart and the other passed through the hip. rrom the manner in which the bul lets enured tho body It is thought one of the balls came from the pistol of Marshal Keagles and the other from the rifle of "Cherokee", but that is only a surmise. On the death of George Wright, all as Carter, Albi rt Ferris, a half-breed Indian, signalled that he would sur render and when the officers ordered him to throw his hands up, they went high above his hade. When the offic ers got to where he was standing Ferris motioned them toward a clump of brush. There they found Geo. Dun can, badly wounded and so weakj from loss of blood that It was diffi- j cult for him to rise to his feet. While Duncan claimed that he had Just been shot, examination revealed the fact that he had been shot the night be fore by Deputy Sheriff Johnson In the first skirmish at Buena Vista, as the wounds had been bound up with handkerchiefs. The loyalty of his companions was shown when later It was learned that they had lmrr-- vlsed a stri tcher and carried him with them In their flteht. Duncan was shot through the body. The bul let entered the rteht side and. after piercing the Intesllues, pass d out at the left side. The two wounded men and the dead man were left In charge of James I'ratlu-r and Constable Ira Hamilton, while tho r st of the par ty continued the search for NltihotUli and Murray, the two remaining con victs, who during the shooting had made their t scape Into the dense un derbrush lining tho two rivers at this pofnt. After spending some time and fully satisfying themselves that It was Impossible for tht m to flush their game, they returned to the scene of the shooting. The automo biles were telephoned for, the dtad man and the wounded prisoners were taken to Buena Vista where tho body of Wright was left and the wound ed prisoners were hurried to Salem In charge of Warden Curtis and a guard who returned later In the after noon with blood hounds from the pen itentiary, for the purpose of running down the two convicts at large. As It was late when they returned and the other officers were coming In from the search, it was decided to abandon the hunt until Monday. In the meantime a close guard was maintained In all the towns, and all the farmers In the vicinity of Buena Vista were warned to look out for l raids by the two mn H! at Ii'K". j both of whom went rat d as liaru. characters.

Within a quarter of an hour help arrived and the Hill place was entirely surrounded, everybody anx ious to get a shot at the fleeing con vict Badly wounded the convict had crawled to the edge of the woods nearest ito Williams and Fltchard from where he called to them that he was ready to surrender.
