Returning from town a few days since, the husband learned that his wife was at the house of his brother-in-law. Approaching the house, he saw his wife through the window, and upon opening the door, was met by the irate brother-in-law with a revolver. Sloan re-treated, went home and got a gun and returned. As he again entered the house, he stumbled and fell, by which the gun was accidentally discharged, "the load "coincidently" entering the brother-in-law's leg. Sloan was arrested, pleaded not guilty, and was thrown in jail. He asked the Sheriff for the loan of a razor, to shave with, which was given him, and he forthwith cut his throat - so badly, it is said - almost severing the windpipe - that he can not recover.
