snapped several caps with tho muzzle
of the gun pointed at a negro woman.
Putting ona fresh cap and pointing tho
gun at little Molllo Hewey,ogcd about five
years, who was playing about thirty
yards from him, ho pulled tlio trigger.
Tho gun went off and tho poor little girl
received tho entire discharge of shot In
