Brother May Die of Sisterís Shot
RENO (Nev.), March 20 - Lloyd BENOIST, the young man who was shot and severely injured at Pyramid Lake by his sister, Mrs. Geo. BLUNDELL, is in a condition that is considered most grave by his physicians. A number of the shot lodged in the back of his neck, near the vertebrae and from these septic poisoning has set in. His face is paralyzed and he is suffering from an attack of jaundice. To-day he is much weaker.

Mrs. Blundell, who shot Benoist, still refuses to talk for publication, but her defense will be that she was so cruelly treated by Benoist that she was rendered desperate. She will testify that as a result of her quarrel with Mrs. Benoist her brother slapped and beat her in the presence of the family and then kicked her repeatedly as she fled into the house. She will say that he followed her into the house and repeated his abuse and that as he left with a taunt she seized a shotgun near at hand and fired a single shot that struck him in the face and neck.
