      WIFE'S AIM TRUE

      WOMAN KILLS HER HUSBAND AND HIS BROTHER

      DOUBLE TRAGEDY IN ILLINOIS

      MISTOOK DRUNKEN PAIR FOR BURGLARS

      SHOT AS THEY BROKE IN DOOR

      Murphysboro, Ill., July 18.--Mrs. George Joubert shot and killed her husband and brother-in-law, Moses Joubert, whom she took for burglars early today.

      The Joubert family reside about five miles east of Ava. George and his brother, Moses, had been to that village and returning home in an intoxicated condition proceeded to break down the door which Mrs. Joubert had locked. The woman became frightened and supposing they intended to kill her, fired her husband's revolver.
