Speclal Dispatch to The SF Call.
RENO, March 15. Lloyd Benoist was shot in the face by his sister. Mrs. Hattie Blundell, with a shotgun last night at Pyramid Lake. The entire charge of fine shot entered his face and head and he is now. confined In a hospital in this city undergoing treatment The shooting arose over - the alleged insulting remark which Mrs. Blundell addressed to Benoist's wife. Benoist and his sister had an argument over the'trouble and finally Benoist walked from the house and was climbing into his wagon preparatory to leaving, when Mrs. Blundell (burst?) from the house armed with a shotgun. Benolst's wife, seeing her husband's danger, screamed, and he turned his head, which probably saved his life, as the charge of shot would have entered at the base of the brain had he not changed his position.
