      DEATH WAS SUDDEN

      Floyd Hosmer of Pingree. Killed by the accidental discharge of hisshot gun.

      Was driving a team of horses and holding the gun in one hand.

      Floyd Hosmer, son of J.H. Hosmer of Pingree, was killed Tuesday by theaccidental discharge of a double-barrelled shotgun. The boy was onhis way to the hills west of Pingree to cut hay and was driving a teamof horses attached to a mower. In one hand he held the shotgun andwith the other drove the team. Bith barrels of the gun were loaded asit was the boys intention to shoot some chickens on the way should anybe found.

      In some way both barrels of the shotgun were dischargedsimultaneously. One charge tore a terrible wound in the boy's abdomenand chest. The other tore one arm in a fearful manner. Death wasalmost instantaneous.

      The body was conveyed to the home of his father. No inquest will beheld as there is no doubt as to the manner in which the boy met hisdeath. His relatives are grief-stricken over his untimely death.

      Floyd Hosmer was about fifteen years of age. He was an industrious boyand popular with all who knew him. His aunt Mrs. W.H. Fletcher ofthis city left today for Pingree to attend the funeral.

      LATER DETAILS

      A later report is to the effect that a man named Boyd was driving ateam in front of the unfortunate boy Boyd heard the report and turnedjust in time to see the boy fall from the seat of the mower. He foundthat Hosmer was badly wounded and left for a neighbor's residence tosecure help. When he returned a few minutes later the young man wasdead.

      It was surmised that the gun slipped from the grasp of the boy and thetrigger struck some portion of the mower causing the discharge of theweapon.[:CR:]
