AGED HUSBAND SHOOTS WIFE
AND KILLS SELF AT R AVIA
HAD BEEN SEPARATED.
The iittle town of Kavia in Johu-
ston county was the scene of a
most disiiessiiig double tragedy yes-
terday. N. 11. Fields aged oi years iu a
inoment of temporary mental aber-
ration caused from loss of sleep
and brooding over family troubles
shot and killed his wife who was
5." years old and then ended his

of the oldest and most .respected
families in southern Oklahoma. For
years Mr. Fields was engaged in
business but of late years has
been doing nothing having turned
his business over to two of his sons.
them are merchandizing in
sume dty The voun;est RO who
has 1)(lfn away from home for some
timft re(.Pntly returned and was
Btri(.kon with yphoid fovcP Fhort-
ly after his return. He was re-
moved to the home of his mother
and his father accompanied him
to help to nurse and care for him.
For days he has been hovering up-
on the brink of death. His father
has been at his bedside almost
constantly and it is said had slept
practically none for over a week.
During the time that the estrang-
ed parents hung over the bedside
of their dying son ministering to
his wants and watching the ebbing
of the tide which was fast carrying
him from them forever it Is not
known whether the husband nnrt
father made any advances toward
effecting a reconciliation with the
wife or not it is not known nor
never will be. Perhaps while watch-
ing the spark of the life of which
he was the author fade perhaps
while hanging over the form of
the son whom he so devotedly loved
the father and husband sought to
take again to his heart and arms
the wife and mother and meeting
with rebuff and refusal broken in
mind soul and body Impulsively
decided on the rash act which has
brought their troubles before tne
great court of last resort. If such
was really the case the Ood who
rules in a mysterious way over the
destinies of man. alone knows.
Right on the stroke of twelve
at noon yesterday Mrs. Fields left
tho sick room and stepped for a
moment into the kitchen. In an
ante-mortem statement she says that
her husband also left the bedside
of the sick son and followed her
into the kitchen. She says that
neitht r spoke. When she reached
the center of the room she said
her husband opened fire upon her.
The first bullet struck her in the
back and us she turned he fired a
second shot which took effect in
the right side of the abdomen pen-
etrating and lacerating the bowels.
When she fell her husband turned
the weapon uion himself and blew
out his brains. He only fired one
shot at himself death resulting in-
stantaneously. Neighbors and members of the fam-
ily rushed in and carried the dying
woman to a bed in the room where
lay the dying sou. Dr. Hardy of
Ardmore was summoned over the
long distance telephone. He re-
ssondd at once barely having
time to catch the Frisco eastbound
train from this place. When he
arrived he saw that the case was
hopeless and devoted his entire time
to relieve the sufferings of the dy-
! ing woman who lived but a (few
1 hours after his arrival.
Mr. Fields iwas a prominent Odd
Fellow and that organization took
j charge of his remains and laid
! them to rest in the little cemetery
' at Ravia late yesterday afternoon.
Mrs. Field will be burled at three
thirt ythis afternoon.
Dr. Hardy who returned from the
scene of the tragedy at a late hour
last night says that owing to
the prominence of the family the
entire community where they lived
and so tragically died is thrown
Into intense excitement
The weapon used by the husband
in bis deed of double rashness
was a .;iS Smith & Wesson doub'e
action. The gun was loaded a"
around- two loaded chambers re-
maining undischarged when the
weapon was taken from the dead
fingers of the uxoricide-suiclde.
The si( k son Mr. Hardy says is
barely alive and In his weaKened
condition it is thought that the shock
of yesterday's events will end his
