"READING, Pa., May 12, - John Rehrer, 13 year old son of Franklin Rehrer, of Wyomising, a fashionable suburb, died in St. Joesph's Hospital today, as the result of a wound inflicted by the accidental discharge of a rifle which was being examined by a playmate, David E. Colehower, son of D. B. [sic - E.] Colehower. The boys were shooting birds when Colehower sighted a sparrow and pulled the trigger. The bullet did not explode and while examining the mechanism of the gun the shot which caused young Rehrer's death exploded. The bullet pierced the abdomen."
