Slain in Mississippi.

John Stephens, well known here, meets a tragic death on Monday.

A telegram to his relatives here from Ellisville, Miss., on Monday night, bore the information that Mr. John Stephens was shot and killed at that place at about one o’clock on that day.

His relatives by telegram directed that his body be shipped to this city and it arrived here on yesterday evening.

No particulars of the shooting have as yet been learned.

The news of his death was quite a shock to his mother, Mrs. S. C. Stephens, and his sisters, Mrs. John P. Anderson and Mrs. W. H. Milner, and his friends throughout the county.

John Stephens was well known here, having been reared at Stilesboro. He was a notably genial and big hearted man and possessed remarkable courage.

His funeral will occur at Oak Hill cemetery today.
