Bell and Rubber Suits

As Mr. Matthew Brown of Otter Creek was loading a gun this morning the shell became fastened and in attempting to force it out it exploded, the shell cutting Mr. McLaughlin's {sp} upper lip and the full charge of the powder striking into his face and eyes. Mr. Yunck brought the wounded man to town when Dr. Coe dressed his wounds and is caring for him. His eyes are badly injured and it is feared that he may lose the sight of one eye if not both.—Mandan Pioneer.

Ed. Note: Not sure who McLaughlin is; this was probably cut down from a much larger article that explained better.
