the services there was not perhaps a

held the undivided attention of his

direct message to dying men, and the

Knox Ckrkk, Sept. 20. A very sad
accident occurred in this neighborhood
on last Tuesday at 10 minutes after 10
o'clock. Mr. Frank Lochridge, son of
Mr. and Mrs. .las. H. Lochridge, acci
dentally shot himself, causing instant
death. The young man, his mother,
and M r. John 'Lochridge, of Columbia,
were seated in the front yard at their
residence, three and a half miles south
east of Spring Hill. The unfortunate
young man was cleaning out a double
barreled hamtnerless shot-gun, pre
paring for a hunt. After getting the
gun cleaned out, his mother asked him
to shoot her a chicken for dinner. He
was sitting on a chair when he mi
breeched the gun and put the shell in
it, with the gun across his lap. The
supposition is that after he threw the
gun back in breech, it was still cocked,
and in getting up off his chair he gave
the gun a jar someway, which made
it tire. The load entered his right side,
Just below the chest and ranged Ho
ward, death resulting instantly. He
was ;i" years and It) months old, and has
lived in this community nearly all his
life. He had scores of friends, who
were very sorry to hear of his death.
