Shot While Hunting In Forest County

Last week Geo. Hudson and his uncle of Pittsfield went to Forest County to look after some land and took their guns to do a little hunting.  While they were in the woods and crossing a small stream they had to cross a log.  The young man told the uncle to be careful in crossing the log.  He was careful, but when the young man went to cross the same his gun was discharged in some manner and the bullet went in one side of the body and came out the other side, killing him instantly.  This happened on Saturday last and the body was taken to the home of his parents in Pittsfield and the funeral was held Wednesday.  The deceased was 30 years of age and the parents and relatives are heartbroken over the sad accident.  He was a very fine young man and had many friends in his neighborhood.
