Sensation in Shreveport.

Mrs. Emma L. Grandville was employed in the Allen Infirmary, in Shreveport, but was recently discharged - for drunkenness the Allens say. She was to have left on Monday morning, and on Sunday asked several times for Dr. J. Walter Allen, who was absent. Some time after eight o'clock that night two pistol shots rang out from her room, followed by cries of help from Dr. Walter Allen. On entering the room his brother and a negro man found Dr. Allen on his knees trying to wrench a pistol from the woman's hand. The doctor had not been seen when the Times got its information; but his brother T. M. Allen said she was trying to blackmail the doctor out of $300. She said that after repeated approaches and repulses on the doctor's part, she had yielded to him she was begging him to provide for her until she was able to take care of herself again, and when he refused to give her more than $100 she drew the pistol, not with the intention of killing him, but herself. She is in jail, or was when this was written.

The doctor is a young man who stands very high as a physician and socially, and few perhaps will believe her story. - Bienville New Era.
