TIIR SI'ICIDE ATTEMPT.
After the shooting Allss .MacCunnell
calmly walked out of the room and took
a train for Coutesvllle, the home of her
parents. Arriving there she quietly
entered the house, and, going upstairs,
placed the revolver to her breast und
tired, the bull passing through her lungs
and lodging In her back. She then In
formed her parents, who Immediately
called In a physician. He located the
bull, but. expressed the opinion that
the fuse wus hopeless. Miss MacCun
nell passed a restless night, her mind
apparently wandering ut times. At
one time she expressed the hope thut
Thompson was dead. She fired two
shots, she said, fur fear one might
not kill him. She declared Thompson
hud deceived her and blighted her life,
and. having nothing to live for, she
luiule up her mind to kill herself. She
wanted Thompson to die so he could lint
blight the lives of utheJ'f.
Today Chief of Polil e lurtlcy brought
suit before Alderman Cummiiigs
ugulnst Miss Mai Council, charging her
with felonious ussault uml battery with
intent to kill, and an olllcer was sent
lo Coutesvllle und served a warrant
on the woman at Iter father's house.
This afternoon she was still alive, but
beyond hopes of recovery. ,
The feeling In Coutesvllle against
Thompson is Intense, w hile much sym

Ihe table on his lirst shot and the crowd
broke loose Into a turmoil. In this
fiame he executed no less thuu three
dltllculf cut-shots In rapid succession.
The next frame prudu I considerable
excitement. On the break Keogh left
Clearwater but one shot, u fairly easy
one for the lower corner. The cham

or two of delibi i-.itlun. let go. The ball
went wide of the pocket, and several
cries of "He is in the air." were heard.
Keogh made one and In a rather over
anxious manner missed nn easv one.
Clearwater took his turn and made one,
then missed on a very simple shut. At

began lo hoot and yell, whereupon
I Clearwater cried "I will not stand that,

angry, keogh pocketed six more and
then quit. After several misses the
frame closed with a nice long shot on
the part of Keogh.
