THE DEADLY SHOTGUN.
Csuitt His Death el One Llllie Boy, Ice
Serious Wound!n el Another erts
Slight lnury to a Third.
West Richmond was the scene Sat
urday afternoon of a shocking and
fatal accident, resulting In the Instant
death of a little three year old boy, the
crippling for life of another and the
slight wounding of a baby. About S
o'clock In the afternoon of that day the
eight year old son of a man named
John Bowers, who lives In one of the
houses belonging to the Hubbell &'
Sbotwell coal company, was at play in
the yard and seeing a rabbit frisking
around concluded to kill It With this
intention he ran up stairs to get a
shotgun. In the room at the time were
his three little brothers aged respect
ively five and three years, and an In
fant aged about one year, and a little
neighbor girl named Grass, aged about
nine years. The gun was banging on
two nails over a bed on tbe north side
of the room, and within easy reach of
a child standing on the bed. Getting
the gun from the nails be Jumped to
tbe floor and started for the stairway
when, It Is supposed, the gun was
dropped and the hammers striking the
steps, discharged one barrel, which
was loaded with duck shot. The charge
entered the breast and chin of the little
three year old, producing Instant
death. The charge also struck tbe
larger boy in the left arm, tearing
away tbe flesh and muscles from the
wrist almost to the elbow. Dr. Smith
was called In and dressed the wounds
of the little sufferer. Two or three of
tbe shot struck the baby on the head,
but fortunately did not Injure It.
Tbe little girl and the five year old
boy escaped unhurt
A Dbmocbat reporter visited the
scene of the tragedy soon after Its oc
currence end learned the above facts.
Tbe parents were overwhelmed with
grief at the awful calamity and could
throw no light on the matter. Coroner
Divilbiss empaneled a jury late in the
afternoon and beld an inquest, a ver

The pain and misery suffered by
those who are atulcted with dyspepsi
are Indescribable. The distress of the
body is equalled or surpassed by the
eonfuslon and torture of the mind,

medicine. It dispels tbe causes of
dyspepsia and tones up the digestive
organs. Try Hood's Sarsaparllla.
