898. Robert G Eather                 



Windsor Saturday - A twelve year old boy names Robert Eather, met with a gun accident at Central Colo yesterday.  He was sent by his mother - with a message to a neighbour. He took a gun with him, and hid it in some bushes on the way. On his return he caught the gun by the barrell to pull it out of the bushes.  The weapon exploded, and the charge entered the boy's left arm, between the shoulder and the elbow. He was brought to Windsor Hospital where Dr Callaghan found that amputation was necessary, the bone being completely shattered.
