Out For A Ride


GRAFTON, N. D., Dec. 13.—Playing that he was a "hunter man," as he had told his mother only a few minutes before, when she had questioned him as to his activities in the woodshed, where he had been enjoying himself, cost Willie McDonald, the 5-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. McDonald, his life. The little fellow and his 8-year-old brother had gained possession of a shotgun which had been left loaded. The older lad discharged the shell and the full charge struck the younger fellow between the eyes and he was dead when his mother, alarmed by the shot, reached his side.
