Milk Wagon

Bennie Carroll, 12 years, today is in a hospital at Hettinger suffering from a wound caused by a bullet that penetrated his abdomen and punctured his intestines. The bullet that lodged in the boy's body first passed through the body of a dog, instantly killing that animal. Leonard Carroll, an older brother, had taken a rifle into the yard to shoot a dog. He shot the dog just as Bennie came out of the house. The bullet after passing through the body of the dog struck a stone, and being deflected about thirty degrees from its course, hit the boy in the abdomen.
