Johnnie Williams, son of W.
E. Williams, an employe of the
Weaver ALfg. Co., tried out a
brand new target Wednesday af
ternoon, and accidently shot Ter
rel Holtsford, 9-year old son of
Contractor J. P. Holtsford, inflict
ing an ugly wound in his temple
'just a little to the right of his
right eye.
The Williams lad, about 12
years old, residing on Tate Si.,
had been seeking a new traget for
some time. His father objected
to buying one but another party
had just reached the Williams
house and had presented him
with a target, and he was pro
ceeding to try his luck.
Aeidently the target was dis
charged, and the bullet struck
the Holtsford lad in the right tern
pie, and while the wound is pain
ful and will require some little
time to heal, it is thought that
nothing serious will develop, and
it is hoped that the little fellow
will get along nicely.
His right eye narrowly escaped
being pierced with the shot.

the story of his interests in war
time. It was half century ago. Dr.
Peeples was a soldier, fighting for
the Southern cause. He was tak
en ill and unable to fight, but the
booming of the cannon, excited
his desire to be taken to the scene
of war, and through the kindness
of some one, whose name is not
known, whom he would be very
pleased to meet during his visit
here, he was removed to Shiloh,
and being yet unable to fight, he
administered to the sick and
wounded. At the close of the bat

iron-gray horse belonging to one
of the soldiers, and through a
