Braceville, Ill., June 3.

John Cornelly, a miner of this place, this morning shot Mrs. John Stoddard through the heart, killing her instantly and then shot himself. He was arrested and placed in jail. While the marshal was yet in the cell with the prisoner he quickly drew a razor and before the marshal could prevent him, cut his own throat. No cause for the tragedy is assigned. Cornelly had, however, been drinking heavily.
