"I put seven shells In my rifle and
went down the road to within about
a hundred yards of tho Akur house,
"There I hid In the brush by the road

would soon come along on their way
to Sunday school. I lay In tho brush
for Home time, and I know when tho
Akors woro ready to start. Thon m
heart seemed to fall mo, and I
thought to mysolf, 'I can't tako tho
llvos of those old people,' and I
started down tho road. Then tho
Akors camo driving toward mo, and
the first thing I knew I was shooting.
"First I fired a shot at one of the
hot'Hos. Then I shot tho woman. At
that Akors got out of tho wagon,
though I hadwoundod hi in before
ho got out, and camo at mo with a
piece of board to fight mo. I kept
shooting, and the first thing I knew
I had fired all soven shots. Then I

lose the confidence of their school

last game tho forwards wero so slow,
so inaccurate, so ovor-zenlous to tho
grandstand that they succeeded in
making two points after n score of
