Noted Desperado Shot
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 7. W. B. Cottrell, the notorious Cedar Keys desperado, was shot and instantly killed here Thursday morning by Chief of Police Gerald. This is the man who several months ago defied the government authorities and caused a revenue cutter to be sent there to capture him.
