We have a very mesger report of
a shooting affair that took place at
Kagle Monday. Andrew Hess, a
highly respected farmer, living
about four miles south of Kugle
was shot and probably fatally
wounded by Kdward Carr of the
same place. The onlv reason for
the shooting that we can learn is,
that they were both driving along
the road south from Kaele. when
Hess, wanting to drive faster than
they were then going, pulled out of
the road ami attempted to pass
Carr. This threw Carr into a pas
sion and driving ahead reached his
home first and when Hess came
along, ho caine out of the house
with a shot gun, leveled it at Hess
and ifred. Mr. Hess was accompan
ieif by his family but no report of
the affair state that anyone else
was hurt. A tclenhone iius:i ....
from Lincoln apprised the county
attorney here that Hess could not
recover and asked that the sheriff
be sent at once for Carr. He is now
in the county jail. Carr is the son-in-law
of J. O. Adams the banker at
