Friday 9 May 1873

Sad Accedent; A sad accident occurred in this county on Tuesday afternoon last, resulting from the accidental discharging of gun in the hands of Bailey Miller, which instantly killed his little cousin, aged about six years, son of Charles Miller. The particulars as we learned it from persons that attended the Coroners investigation are about as follows: Bailey Miller, aged about 15 years, and another boy, were returning from a squirrel hunt and when nearing home, cocked their gun to shoot a bird, but did not do so. Soon after they entered the enclosure, and seated themselves near the foot of a tree. While sitting there, little Henry Miller came running down the hill from the house to them, and when quite close, Bailey Miller, who had the gun in his hand remarked, "If he were an Indian, couldn't I shoot him", at the same time bringing the gun to his face. His companion shouted that the gun was cocked-- but too late! The deed was done and the little innocent boy was in the agonies of death. Baileysays his intenion was to snap the triggers and frighten Henry, and had forgotten the gun was cocked. Mr William Gaskins, Coroner for this county, summoned a jury on Wednesday Morning, who held an investigation, and the verdit was death from the accidental discharge of a gun in the hands of Bailey Miller.

We hope this sad case may prove a warning to old and young in this vicinity, and prevent the careless handling of fire arms.
