Guelph Boy Shot his Companion.
An accident occurred Friday afternoon, a short distance from the city, which resulted in the almost instant death of James Connolly, aged 18, an employee of Taylor-Forbes Co., Guelph. The young man, with two younger companions, were out for an afternoon's shooting and when near Trainor's Cut they decided to take a short cut. Connolly went up the embankment and sat down, and one of the boys, named Scarlett, went towards him, but in doing so tripped. In falling the rifle was discharged and the 22-bullet lodged in Connolly's head, going in just over the right eye. One of the boys ran for help to a nearby farmer, but before anyone else could reach him Connolly was dead. Connolly's parents recently retired from farming to live in Guelph.
