Find Hunter Dead Under Wire Fence
Bismarck, N. D., Dec. 13.—After searching since last Friday relatives of John Carlson, aged 19, found his body yesterday afternoon within half a mile distance from his home. Last Friday he started out hunting alone and was accidentally shot with his own gun. In crossing over a barbed wire fence the trigger caught in one of the wires and the firearm discharged.
Carlson's mother owns a big ranch about ten miles west of Mandan and the family is a most estimable one in that section. The young man was one of the three children of the family and was heir to a fortune. He has a sister living at Bismarck at the present time.
