On Friday last he had become excited and attempted to kill Miss Bertha Kingsley, the daughter of Mr. Earl Kingsley, whose farm is just outside the limits of the village of Castile. He failed in his attempt and fled and when he found the people were after him, he turned his gun on himself. Just what caused him to shoot Miss Kingsley seems to be unknown. He had been working for Mr. Kingsley for the past three years and it is said that he had fallen in love with the young lady, who had been kind to him, but when it came to considering him as a candidate for her hand, she would not think of it. Hence, possibly, his irrational conduct.

Her condition warrants strong hope of her recovery. Swoboda was captured by Deputy Sheriff Locke and brought to Warsaw.
