ELLIS COUNTY CAPITAL

A SAD ACCIDENT

Happened North of Gage, Wednesday Afternoon---Died from His Wounds

On Wednesday afternoon occurred a very sad accident which resulted in the death of William Latham. He had gone out to his farm to fix his fences and had taken his gun along to shoot some quail. He had shot a quail and started to get into his wagon when the horses started and the gun was discharged, the load taking effect in his right arm between the elbow and shoulder.

The gun was so close to the member injured that it tore the muscles all away and completely shattered the bone.

He managed to get into his wagon and get to the place where he was boarding, and a physician was summoned, but he had lost so much blood it was impossible to save him and he died about 9 o'clock Wednesday night.

Mr. Latham was a bachelor and was thirty-two years old. He had been working for L. J. Bennett as a tinner. He was a fine manly fellow, well liked by everybody and the people in the community near his claim held him in high esteem.

His early death has cast a gloom over the entire community.
