NORTH DAKOTA LAD SHOT IN DUEL.
Lloyd Smith, an eleven year old boy of Thompson, N. D., was shot in the head by his companion, August Booth. The boys were hunting gophers when Booth pulled up his gun and pointing it at young Smith, said: "Let's fight a duel." At that he pulled the trigger and the bullet entered the head between the eyes. There is a slight chance for his recovery.
