The full contents of the bullet struck Nelson Just above the left hip from the front, striking him on the glance, and tear ing a wide gap through the fleshy part of his side. Nelson, In company with Duke An » derson, local manager of the M. S. T. ft T. company aboùt 1 o'clock Wednesday for Mud dy for chicken hunting. Nelson took his little boy, Clinton, who is five years old with him for an outing. Both men had been hunting and had bagged some game, when it was V agreed that Anderson was to contin ue hunting and Nelson was to spend some time fiBhlng. The shot gun was laid in the seat of the car with the barrel projecting out on the side where Nelson was engaged In prepar ing his fishing paraphernalia. Clint was in the car, and in a childish way was tinkering with the gun, which apparently had been placed in the car in firing shape. Nelson was from 10 to 16 feet from the car in a stooping position when the gun was discharged, the contents striking him as noted above. It was fully 30 minutes before An derson returned to the car to find hi! companion in this condition. Nel Bon, fearing too heavy a loss of blood cranked the car, but waited for An derson to return. He was rushed home with all possible speed and tak en to the Montpelier hospital. An ex amination of the wound showed that it was not serious, although shot was scattered through his side.

After tho tiJd of Gibbons and Reed had been read, Mr. Bryden moved :hat tho samo bo accepted. Murray seconded the motion and the vote stood four In favor and two against. Later motion was made by M.\ Stephens, seconded by Mr. Robison that the mayor and city clerk be authorized to sign contract in be half of the city of Montpelier. The vote was unanimous In favor of the motion. Every other feature being in readi ness the contractors had a force of inen at work on the streets Monday morning and a force of men was also put to work in the rock quary east of the city, from which the contractors will procure rock for the foundation of the street. The amount of paving that will be completed this fall depends entirely upon weather conditions. The con tractors feel certain that Main street can be finished as far east as Eighth street, but it is their inten tion to work as long this fail as con ditions will warrant. The contract is in the hands of a contracting firm that is fully cap able of fulfilling it to the letter. Mr. Reed gave the council assurance some time ago that the streets would not be torn up and left In that way over winter, and it Is their purpose to complete the work as they go so that when weather conditions will not permit of further work this fall there will not be a lot of torn up streets for the public to battle with gover winter. The latest type of surfacing wlll.be laid In this city. The new type Is a non-bleeding bitullthlc and will not bo affecte«^ by tho beat of summer and caused to run as the old type does. i j p ' n c Mb '!

It would be expect ed the' nut of over five hundred chil dren there may he s few that wars backward and could not carry the work under the most favorable en vironment. But we have not thirty belonging to that cists. In fact the most of these children are normal. "In looking up the attendance rec ord cf these thirty children It he roines quite evident that moat of 'hem failed to make their grade on account of irregularity of attending.
