A JEALOUS HUSBAND. SHOOTS WOMAN FOR WIFE'S LOVER. M. Van Striben, a Paris insurance agent, gave himself up to the police on Tuesday morn- ing for shooting at and wounding a friend of his wife under extraordinary circumstance-si. A few days ago M. Van Striben, who i6 nearly 30 years older than hie young wife, received an. anonymous letter telling him that his wife was visited by a handsome young man while he was, away on business. M. Van Striben, who is very jealous, left Paris last week, but returned sud- denly unannounced, and found his wife with a lady whom she introduced as her friend liline. Van Chariot. Next day the husband received another anony- mous letter telling him that he. had been fooled, -and that Mme. Van Chariot" was a young ma.n in disguise. Determined to get to the bottom of the matter, M. Van Striben went out after dinner, saying that he would not be home until long after midnight, and hid himself in, the shrubbery, oblivious to the rain. At eleven o'clock a smartly dressed young man; came up and let himself into the house with a latchkey. M. Van Striben drew his revolver and pulled the trigger, but the cartridge missed; fire. He waited in the bushes until nearly two-, o'clock, when the young man came out. Them he fired again, and the man fell forward. The shot brought out Mme. Van Striben, and several neighbours, and then the jealous husband found' that he had shot Mme. Van Chariot. This lady- was in the habit of keeping Mme. Van Striben> company while her husband was away, and used: to dress in her husband's clothes. to avoid at- tracting the attention of the "Apaches," who infest the neighbourhood, while on her way home. She is dangerously wounded, and not. expected to live.
