Shot in Hand
John Hamilton, one of our prosperous farmers living north of this city met with a very painful accident Monday evening by being shot in the hand. He was with a threshing crew near Bonetrail at the time and was leaning against a wagon, his hand hanging down inside the box. One of the crew had a shotgun and this was accidentally discharged. The charge of shot went through the wagon box and part of it lodged in Hamilton's hand. He was brought to this city for treatment and the shot was removed. Luckily his hand was not shattered by the charge of shot and he will not lose the use of it.
