GIRL KILLED IN LOVER'S DUEL
Bedford, Indiana, June 25 – Albert Roberts and Oscar Jeans have been rival suitors of Miss Jennie Russell. While Roberts and Miss Russell were out driving, they met Jeans, and a pistol duel ensued between the two men.
Miss Russell leaped from the buggy and rushed between them, but they continued shooting, and she was fatally wounded, it is alleged, from one of Roberts' shots.
Roberts grabbed the girl in one arm as she fell and continued firing with the other. Miss Russell died in a few hours at her home, Roberts remaining at her bedside even after death.
He will lose his mind. Jeans escaped.
