In hi* newspaper career of more
than twenty years the editor of the
Gazette has never been called open
to chronicle a suddei tragedy thatf
the one which occurred at Westdnia,
Coffee county, last Friday.
Mr. Stephen Weston has three
sons, one a lad of-seven years of age.
On the day of the tragedy Mr. Wes
ton was shooting birds with a Win
chester rifle, had killed two and
given them to two of his sons and
leaving the seven-vcur-oid without a
bird. He asked his father to kill
him one also; he consented,, and
father and son went to u small field,
near their home, to fulfill the prom
ise. Tho lad went round the field to
senro up some birds which he had
located while tfie father went, up the
fence row to hide himself from tho
birds and enable him to get us close
to them as possible. One of the
birds lighted on the fence just in
front of Mr. Weston and ho shot pt
it. Tho bull struck a light,wood
post that was standing beyond but
in line with the bird a little quar
tering, pussed through the Bap part,
glanced from the hard wood and
pierced the boy’s brain and killed
