Mill HULA AGGIDENTALLV SHOT AND
SERIOUSLY HIDED WHILE IITI
Charles Freese, On of the Hunting Party Fires at Rabbit, Not
Knowing of the Unfortunate Man' Nearness, Over Half
the Charge Entering One of Young Hula's Hips.
While out hunting Saturday
afternoon Anton Hula was ac
cidentally wounded by a gunshot,
the charge striking him in the
fleshy part of tin leg just below
the hip, the shot being llretl at a
rabbit by Charles Freese. r.
Cummins was summoned and
brought II ula to his office and
found that .'10 shot bad penetrated
the flesh, ami were too deeply im
beded to he seen. A temporary
dressing was given t he wound, and
Hula sent to St. Joseph hospital,
at Omaha. Charles Hula went to
Omaha this morning, expecting
Dr. Allison to remove the shot to
day. The charge of shot was fired
at about fifteen yards distance,
and consisted of No. , chilled
shot. The wound though pain
ful is not considered dangerous.
The accident was unfortunate,
and Charles Fres.se regrets it, very
much, and had no idea that anv
one was in range of his gun at the
time he fired. The party consist
ing of seven, who went out to
Cedar Creek Saturday morning on
No. 29. and spent the dav hunting
cottontails, and had followed the
hedge fence rows toward Platts
iiwm.Ui, and were returning to
town having reached the C. F.
Vallej-y farm west of the city by
about : : :t 0 in the afternoon when
the accident happened. Hula and
Freese were on opposite sides of
the hedge, and Hula, unknown to
Freese, had advanced several
yards and was in the act of cross
ing through the hedge when a cot
tontail jumped out on the side of
the hedge on which Freest; was.
He, tired ns soon as he saw the
rabbit, more than half of the con
tents of the shell striking Hula,
who fell and moaned. Freese sum
moned the physician at once, and
did all in his power to assist
young Hula. It was expected that
Dr Allison would use the ex-ray on
the wound yesterday, and the
patient would be in condition to
operate upon this morning. The
nature of the chilled shot is to
penetrate deeply, but, not tear or
lacerate, and the condition of the
would was considered favorable in
that regard Hula is employed in
the blacksmith shop in the Hurl

Fireman Miller was fast, asleep in

man crawled into the cab, roughly
shook the llremau with a com
mand. 'Cohie through and did up."
Williams was "skeered" of the
"nigger" and looking down the
barrel of the gun confessed that
he had no money except, one lone
nickle. "Come through with the
nickle," was the course language
of the highwayman. "You've got a
watch, lets have it," and Miller
forked over his timekeeper. The
holdup man then slid from the
engine and proceeded a few rods
down the track and met Harry
Oochenonr and demanded his
watch, which Harry handed over
without hesitation. The robber
then started up the track toward
the big bridge, when he was ac
costed by Henry Trout, who com
manded him to halt, but either
not hearing the officer or fearing
the rigors of life in the .Cass
county prison, the highwayman
dropped the properly, he had so
