St. Boniface Boy Killed

Eugene Walters, a young man of St. Boniface, died in the woods about one-third of a mile from that place last Thursday evening as the result of a peculiar hunting accident. Accompanied by John Phillips, Walters went after game. Between 5 and 6 o'clock, Phillips, in crossing a fence scared out a rabbit and the two hunters laid their shotguns on a stone pile and gave chase to Bunny. Walters threw a stone at the rabbit but the missile struck the hammer of Phillip's weapon, discharging it. Walters was standing about fifteen feet from the gun when it was fired and received the load in his right side, a great hole being torn in his breast and an artery severed. Phillips at once went to St. Boniface to bring help, but when the party reached Walters he was breathing his last.
