Gun Was Loaded
from Alice Biesma's scrapbook
John Biesma from south of town met with an accident the other day with a rifle, which he loaded in the house in preparation of shooting rats on his farm. The telephone rang, and upon going to answer it with his finger on top of the mussel of the gun, he jarred it unconsciously up and down on the floor several times and the rifle discharged, tearing off one of his fingernails and other bruises to his finger.
