Two maiden ladies, Maria and Viretta Reeves, living near Davisville, on Tuesday, shot and killed one burglar and mortally wounded and captured another about midnight. One of the sisters saw a man in her room. She raised a revolver and fired, killing him. He was shot through the temple. The other sister was awakened, seized a weapon, and sprang on the other burglar as he was trying to escape through the window. He was too late, as he fell to the ground with a bullet through is groin.
