The Jackson County Banner records the death of a man named Jacob Flick, who was shot by a companion while hunting deer. The unfortunate man had on a deer skin cap which the other man mistook for a deer and fired with fatal results.

"SAD ACCIDENT - A MAN SHOT WHILE WATCHING FOR A DEER

We are indebted to Mr. E.D. Maxon, of Alma, for the particulars of an accident that occurred near the northern border of that town on Friday of last week. Mr. Jacob FLICK, a German, was watching for a deer in that locality. He unfortunately had on a deerskin cap. A young man named Johnny HURST was hunting for deer at the same time, and seeing what he supposed to be one, fired and inflicted so severe a wound in the head of Mr. FLICK that he died in about three-fourths of an hour. The unfortunate man leaves a wife and eight children to mourn his loss. We have frequently taken to caution hunters about being careful? This is a sad warning. Learn a lesson from it."

"ACCIDENTS - About two weeks ago a man by the name of Jacob Flick was accidentally shot and killed by a man named Hurst, while hunting deer, in the woods north east of Augusta. Flick had on a deer-skin cap at the time and while passing through the brush, was taken for a deer by Hurst, and immediately fired upon, with the result as above stated. Our western exchanges are full of accidents resulting in a measure from carelessness on the part of hunters. Will these individuals profit by these sad experiences and be more careful in the future. The preserving of a man's life is worth considerable caution, even, if in the exercise of it hundreds of deer escape the aim of their eager pursuers."

Another of those serious affairs which often result from lack of caution, occurred last Thursday, near the town of Lincoln. The facts as stated to us are as follows - a young man named John Hurst, half cousin to John Hurst, ex-town clerk of Lincoln, was following up a creek that runs through that section of the county, while at the same time unbeknownst to young Hurst, a Jacob Flick was watching for the same kind of game. Mr. Flick wore a beaver skin cap, and was so secreted in the grass as to only expose a portion of his cap, which attracted the attention of young Hurst, who supposed it to be a deer, drew the gun to his shoulder, and took steady aim, and fired. The deadly missile had performed its deadly mission and passed through the brain of poor Jacob Flick, who expired within an hour after the fatal shot. He leaves a wife and four children to mourn this most untimely and sad event. Mr. Hurst, who deeply laments this terrible accident, is exonerated from all blame in the premises, as he cannot be censured for the occurrence.
