Fatal Shooting Accident
About noon on Thursday last a terrible accident occurred near Woodsville, which should be an eloquent warning against the careless carrying and use of deadly weapons. The little son and daughter of Peter J. Snook, aged about five and seven years respectively, were playing about their father's door-yard when the little boy discovered the coat of the hired man hanging on a tree. The little fellow's curiosity was too great to be controlled and on examining the pockets, he found a loaded revolver, which was a wonderful prize in his childish eyes. While toying with the weapon, it accidentally went off, and the contents lodged in the heart of his little sister, causing instant death.
