MURDERED BY WIFE? i j Shooting Affray At J Whitemouth Man Whitemouth, Man., March theories are put forth to explain the shooting of Samuel Bovitch the White mouth farmer who died from the ef- fect of gunshot wounds. The first theory is that his wife at breakfast was handling some dishes on a shelf i behind her husband. The rifle was 1 hanging on a nail below and in some I way it is thought she knocked the j "f gundown, causing it to explode. Bo- i v vitch, who was sitting at the table. received the fatal bullet in his back, i H however, that this expla- j 4- nation is not accepted by the dead man's friends. Bovitch married only two weeks ago a mere girl not over seventeen years of age and it is alleged they I were unhappy. The night, before tho j shooting she went to her mother's j house and said she was not going to live any longer with Bovitch. Her mother sent her back to him. I Next moruing Mrs. Bovitch, accom- j panied by a younger sister, went home. When she arrived at the house i the sister saw things were in con-. fusion and decided to return back to Sir John French Is Hear Any Witnesses In .W.
