after a pistol duel between C. W. Hen

The wounded : J. C. Cunningham of
Los Angeles shot through the left
thigh , serious ; Hills Pearson , nhot
through the left log ; Dr. C. II.
Bowles , shot through the left hand.
It Is believed that one of the robbers
bors was badly wounded. Mr. Qrls-
weld was a wealthy citizen of Manson -
son , la. Ho came hero several months
ago for the benefit of his mother's
The hold-up occurred at fie head of
n deep cut. The robbers had placed
a steel rail , a largo bench and a co-
merit barrel on the track. The motorman -
man saw the obstruction when the
cnr was several hundred yards from It
and at once turned off the current
and ran slowly to the place. The mo
ment the car struck three men , wearIng -
Ing masks over their faces , sprang
from the weeds alongside the track
One boarded the front end of the car
and the other two the rear end. The
first man commanded the passengers
occupying the open seats to put up
their hands , and when one of them did
not comply , he fired a shot. Henderson
then opened lire on the robber , shoot
ing as fast as he could pull the trigger
The robber turned his gun upon Hen
derson , but as ho did BO ho was soon
to bend over and cry out as If In pain.
Then straightening up , ho began shoot
ing at the passengers huddled In the
front seats. One of his bullets strucli
Ellis Pearson In the left leg. Hender
son continued firing and the robbci
was seen to fall.
While this was going on on the out
sldo of the car a tragedy was bclnp
enacted Inside. The two robbers whc
had entered the rear door commander
the passengers to raise their hands
and most of them did so. . Before anj
attempt could be made by the robbon
to search the passengers for theli
valuables , the shootlntr beean on the
outside of the car. Then the other
two robbers began shooting right and
left Into the crowd of passengers.
Grlswold was seated about the mid
dle of the car , with his back turned
toward the robbers. At the command ,
"hands up , " ho tried to secrete his
watch under his legs , and one of the
robbers , thinking ho was about to
draw a gun , fired point blank at him.
The bullet struck him In the back of
the neck and he fell over into the lap
of his aged mother , who was seated
at his side.
Dr. C. H. Bowles was near the front
door and at the command of the rob
bers ho raised his hands. When he
had them in the air one of the bullets
from a robber's revolver struck his
left hand and shattered the bones.
After emptying their revolvers the
robbers backed out of the door and
sprang off the car and disappeared.
That many more were not killed or
wounded is little short of miraculous.
Inside the car was thirty or more pas
sengers and there were more than ten
shots fired. Bullets were found im
bedded in the woodwork In many
places when the car reached this city.
Grlswold expired before the car had
gone a mile. He never spoke after he
was shot and when his body was lifted
from the car at Santa Monica his
watch was found under him on the
seat. His mother was covered with
his blood and was almost insane
from fright and grief. The bullet
which killed him grazed the cheek ol

Betty , his wife , Lulu , and their boy.
Harry , aged twenty months , were

have killed herself and babe on ac
count of domestic troubles. It Is
stated that divorce proceedings had
been instituted two years ago and
were withdrawn before the birth of
their boy. Betty , It Is thought , found
the dead bodies on his return homo
and then deliberately took his own
life. The body of the babe was found
in the basin with no marks on It what
ever. It is thought that Betty took It
from the crib and tried to revive it
by turning on the water. When ho
found it dead he lay down beside his
wife's dead body to die from asphyx

bodies were found. The odor of the
