Shot In The Foot

D. S. McIlwain received a message yesterday from Harvey stating that his brother Burt had accidentally shot and killed himself. While slaughtering hogs he struck at one with the butt of a rifle, the weapon was discharged and the ball entered his body, causing death within 50 minutes.

The unfortunate victim was 22 years of age and was quite well known in Hankinson having visited here during the holidays just past. Hankinson friends extend deepest sympathies to the bereaved family.

D. S. McIlwain left immediately on receipt of news of the tragedy.
