      John Hollub, well-to-do farmer of the Straiton community, was killed about 9 o'clock this morning.  From meagre reports received, it seems Mr. Hollub was in his corn field some distance from the house when the shot was fired which caused his death.
       
      A shotgun was used, the shot taking effect in the neck and causing instant death.
       
      Sheriff Pence is at the Hollub home this afternoon investigating the shooting, but he would give out no statement in time for us to give details in day's paper.  Neighbors of the Hollub family refused to be quoted and it is not known whether the identity of the party who did the shooting is known.
       
      John Hollub has been a a resident of the Stratton section for many years, where he owned five or six hundred acres of land.  He was in Yoakum yesterday and disposed of nine bales of cotton, the last of his year's crop, to the Edwards-Gilbert Company, little thinking no doubt that it would be his last visit to this city.
       
      He is survived by his wife and four children.
       
      A.P. "Pinkie" Benbow was arrested Tuesday afternoon by Sheriff John N. Pace of DeWitt County in connection with the killing of John Hollub of the Stratton section yesterday morning.  Mr. Benbow was taken to Cuero by the officer where his examining trial will be held.  The killing was said to have been the outgrowth of trouble the two men had had before.  The Benbow family is one of the most prominent in DeWitt county, and it is not thought there will be any trouble in securing bond for the accused man.
