    YOUNG WOMAN KILLS BRUTAL HUSBAND
    Mrs. Grace Irene Varain, after an unhappy married life of almost three years, during which time she suffered many beatings at the hands of her drunken and brutal husband, Julian W Varain, shot and killed him Thursday morning at their home near the Virginia mine, at about 9 o'clock.
    The shooting followed one of many quarrels between the young couple which began almost from the date of the marriage continuing up to his death. On the morning of the shooting, Varain returned home in a drunken condition and administered a severe beating to his young wife, strikingi her in such a manner as to badly cut her tongue besides suffering other bruises. Varain was a powerful young man and about 25 years of age. Mrs. Varain is the daughter of Frank Converse and but 19 years of age. The couple were marred in Merced in November 1915, but have made their home near Coulterville. One child resulted from this union.
    The sympathy of the entire community, even the members of his immediate family, is with Mrs. Varain, all of whom well know the inhuman treatment she has received. Mrs. Varain was brought to Mariposa yesterday where she will remain until her preliminary examination, which will be held next Wednesday at Coulterville.
    The funeral of Varain will be held at Granite Springs today.
