A Tragedy at Kingston
Three Year-Old Child Killed By Little Brother

The little three-year old child of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Morrison of Kingston was killed by his little brother, who was playing with a loaded shotgun, last Friday.

The report received here is to the effect that Mr. Morrison cleaned up his shotgun, loaded it, and placed it under the bed. Later, he and Mrs. Morrison started to the field to work and when early a little distance from the home, they heard the report from the gun as it was discharged.

Fletcher, aged five years, came running to meet them as they returned saying he had shot his little brother.

Little Harry, aged three, was dead, his body lying on the floor, when they reached the house.

Burial was had in the McWright Cemetery and there is much sympathy for this family who are so sorely grieved over the tragedy.
