A COUSIN'S MAD JEALOUSY. Murdered a Young Husband and was Himself Shot Dead. Jacksonville, (Fla.) has been the scene of a peculiarly romantic tragedy. Adolf Gottliel kept a tobacco and cigar store in the town, and was aided in the sale of his wares by his daughter Minna. Among her numerous admirers were John Hanson, the son of a well- to-do cetton planter, and his cousin, Luke Hanson, an idle fellow. These two became jealous, and meeting on the evening of October 29. each accusod the other of trying to supplant him in the girl's affections. John Hanson went to the girl aud told her what had happened, and together they planned to elope that night if her father would not give his consent to their immediate union. The father consented, and the wedding was celebrated on Sunday, and it was also arranged a couple of days ago that they should start on their honeymoon trip through the Southern States. However, while the bride and bridegroom were driving from their house to catch the train at Penn's-crossing they were stopped by Luke, who levelled his shot- gun at his cousin, the latter at the same time drawing a revolver. The two men fired almost simultaneously. John Hanson fell wounded from the trap into the road. The other, though wounded, managed to seize the horses and stop them. Mounting the trap ho beaded the horses in the direction of Jack- sonville and was about to drive over the wounded man in the road, when the latter, making a last effort shot his cousin through the heart. Mrs. Hanson drove back to the house for assistance, with Luke's body still in the buggy, and there told what had happened. The bridegroom's father and a party of sei-vanfcs went far the body and returned with it to the house. As soon as Mrs. Hanson saw the blood-stained corpse of her husband her reason gave way and she was removed to a private insane asylum.
