BELL BOY IS SHOT.
Lad Neglects to Tell Fellow Employe Gun Is Loaded.
Elmer Norson, eighteen years old, whose home is at Benson, Minn., but who has been working as a bell boy at a Fargo hotel, was shot and seriously wounded by the accidental discharge of a revolver which he was exhibiting to a fellow employe. The gun was loaded, but when Norson handed it to his companion he failed to tell him the fact. The latter pointed the pistol downward and pulled the trigger, the ball penetrating the fleshy part of Norson's leg. Unless blood poisoning intervenes the physicians say the boy will recover.
