In pulling it toward him the hammers dragged against a log, cocking both of them, one of them going off and discharging the load through the muscle of the left arm, cracking the bone and tearing out pieces. It was the barest chance that the load did did not enter his heart or both barrels discharge with even more horrible results. The victim was brought in to town at once, arriving here about 4 o’clock Saturday morning where he received medical attention at the home of his sister, Mrs. Herb White. The patient is reported doing as well as can be expected.


A little love, a little wealth; A little home for you and me; It’s all I ask except good health, Which comes with Rocky Mountain Tea. City Drug Store.
