Distressing and Fatal Accident – Curious Course of a Ball. – Last Saturday Mr.Robert Gautier, with his little son were visiting Mrs. Gaston, in the bottom, opposite this city, and went out in the afternoon hunting squirrels. Several efforts were made to fire the gun, but failing to fire it, they returned to the house and set the gun down in the corner of the room. Shortly after, some of the company rose to return home, and were followed by a dog who ran against the gun, knocking it down, when it exploded, the ball scratching the wrist of Mrs. Gautier, passed through the head of her little child, killing it instantly, again scratching her arm above the elbow, and lodged in the arm of Mrs. Dunn. The ladies were not seriously injured. Lexington Union.
