Carlos FEIKERT, 20, son of Mr. and Mrs. William FEIKERT, just north of Argos, died within five minutes after being accidentally shot thru the lungs while hunting with his cousin, Andrew LEFFERT, Monday. Feikert, who had been married just before Christmas to Miss Mary HISEY, of Argos, and was living with his parents, went hunting for rabbits Monday with his cousin. The two young men had scared up a rabbit, which went into a brush pile on the Feikert farm. As the hunters poked around in the pile to get the rabbit out it suddenly dashed into view and both of the boys reached for their guns. As he swung about Leffert in some manner still unknown to him, suddenly discharged his weapon. The shot from the gun went into Feikert's right side penetrating the upper portion of his right lung. He fell over and Leffert rushed to him. Feikert told Leffert that he realized that he was dying fast. He kissed his cousin goodbye and asked that he be remembered to all his relatives and friends. With his last breath he exonerated Leffert from blame in the accident and then passed away. Feikert was well known in Argos where he had lived practically all of his life. He was a member of the K. of P. lodge, a graduate of the Argos schools and was a member of the Argos band. He had been married only a brief time and had planned to look after his father's farm, his father planning to move into Argos some time in the near future. Surviving are the parents, the widow and three sisters.
