Shot Through Both Hands.
Lacy Grooms, a farmer, while driving west of Minot, shot both his hands with a shotgun, blowing off two fingers of his right hand and tearing a hole in his left hand. He was riding in a wagon, resting the butt of the gun, a double-barrelled one, on the bottom of the box, and had his hands crossed on the muzzle. A small boy sitting in front of him received some shot in his temple and one coat sleeve was completely ripped off his arm.
