Fatally Wounded Her Husband.
Butte, Mont., Special.—Mrs. James Baptiste shot and fatally wounded her husband, a telegraph operator at the M. & M. pool rooms, where he was employed. Baptiste recently left his wife and took up with a variety actress. Mrs. Baptiste brought suit for divorce, but was not satisfied to let the recreant husband off so easily. She walked into the pool rooms and, pointing the revolver through a window at her husband, blazed away. The ball passed through his body and struck the backbone. She was arrested.
