The three shots took ■effect. Spencer then walked am-ay about a quarter of a mile and shot himself dead. He had a bottle of poison on him. It is feared that the shots fired into the girl will be fatal. One bullet has been extracted, but the others are still in the body. Very little hope is entertained for the girl's recovery.
