Weekly Graphic (Adair County) July 15, 1881

Dennis Gillooty and James McIntyre quarreled at Hannibal about the latter's children, and on Wednesday evening they met on the street and proceeded to shoot it out. Mighty poor shooting, though.
Gillooty shot five times and hit several bystanders but missed his man. McIntyre had no better luck, as he managed only to put a ball through his own hand. The combatants were then arrested.

SHOOTS SWEETHEART AND RIVAL

Paris, Mo., Dec 6---Frank Dawson was brought to the Paris jail this morning, charged with attempting to kill Miss Annie Hartman and Obie Hughes at a country dance last night.
It is said Dawson is in love with Miss Hartman and has repeatedly urged her to become his wife. She refused to do so and continued to receive the attention of other suitors. Last night she attended a dance at George Ownsby's in company with Hughes.
When the dance was in progress Dawson entered the room and without a word of warning began shooting. His first two bullets took effect just below Miss Hartman's heart, inflicting wounds which are considered fatal.
He then turned the pistol upon her escort, sending a bullet into his shoulder. Thinking he had killed them both, Dawson walked out. He was captured at the home of his brother, near Paris this morning.
