A small boy, a revolver cartridge, a hammer nnd a nail were mixed up in an accldent Sunday morning which will probably result in the loss of one of the small boy's eyes. Pearl, the five-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Kllburn of West Rutland, was playlng with a 22-calibre cartridge.n from which the bullet had been re moved, but it is supposed that the charge of powder was still intact. The boy had run a nall into the cart ridge and was pounding this with a hammer with the natural result that an explosion followed. The flylng fragments inflicted a bad wound in the left eye and the llp and right hand were also torn. Thls boy has had an unusual run of hard luck during hls brief existence. A few weeks ago he foll on a polnted stick, one end of which was inserted in hls mouth and as a result he received a bad wound ln the throat. He had just recovered from thls Injury when one of his fln gers was crushcd to a pulp by a blow from a hammer in the hands of an older brother. MRS. ALKJK l'AGE DKAD.
