Full Text
A sad fatal accident, the result of playing with firearms, occurred at the home of Mrs. McColl, near Campbellville, on Monday. Two orphan children, Allen and Oscar Anderson, aged seven and five years, sons of the late Wm. Anderson, living with their grandmother Mrs. McColl, while left alone in the house for a few minutes undertook to load a rifle. Oscar was sitting on a chair holding the muzzle of the rifle against his breast while Allen put in the cartridge, and while in this position the shot was fired. The ball entered the breast went through the body and the back of the chair and out of the open door. Allen immediately ran out of the house and gave the alarm, and when some neighbors arrived they found Oscar still sitting on the chair, quite dead.
