The facts in connection with the
regrettable tragedy are simple and in-
expressibly sad. From particulars which

that the deceased and Weingartner pro-

six cows he left the yard in order to do

it, as Ralph was in the habit of shoot

and after passing through the gate he
noticed Ralph lying on the ground, out-
thought he was ill and he ran to a
neighbor, named Daniel Sullivan for
assistance. When returning to the
house with Sullivan, Weingartner saw
rooms of the house. He spoke to him,
stating that Ralph was lying outside
and he thought he was ill. Herbert
replied that he "did not think there

It appears that on his way to Too-

Ralph had had a quarrel about a patent
fire lighter. He desired to have it

picked up the gun, which by the way
is an old double-barrelled breech-loader,
