Accident News

On Thursday last an accident occurred in Cold Spring township whereby a boy named Horace Stogsdull was shot in the temple by a man named Geo. Brown.  Brown was fooling with a pistol, cleaning it or something when it went off striking the boy on the temple.  The ball passed in under the scalp and the boy was brought to town yesterday to see whether the wound was serious or not.
