Grand Forks Plaindealer: Samuel Shannon, on his return from Ojata yesterday about 5 p.m., picked up a curious looking object near the university, and while in the act of investigating its properties, it gave a sudden report and a No. 22 bullet became instantly lodged in the base of his little finger of the left hand. Moved by fright and smarting with pain, he hurried to the office of Dr. Duggan, where the bullett {sp} was extracted, the wound dressed and the broken bone splinted. The bone was badly broken and splintered and it may yet become necessary to amputate the finger.
