Little Child Gored By Bull

Gackle, May 15. Possibly one of the most terrible misfortunes that has happened in this community occured at the home of John Rath, four miles northwest.

The 8-year-old son, together with some other children, had gone out to the pasture to drive in the cows, when the little fellow was attacked by a large bull that was in the bunch. The horns of the bull made many wounds on one side of the boy's body, necessitating sixteen stitches to close them up. The boy was at once brought to town and placed in the care of Dr. Sturgeon, who labored faithfully to save him, but only preserved life 24 hours when he succumbed to internal injuries.
