Sauk Rapids Sentinel: A serious accident occurred below St. Cloud last Thursday. We have not been able to gain the particulars, but are informed that two boys of Mr. A. A. Hart, of the town of Maywood, this county, were handling a revolver, which was supposed to be unloaded, but which proved to be otherwise. The weapon was discharged, and the ball entered the knee of the elder of the two boys, inflicting a very serious wound. An examination after the accident showed that there were still several loaded cartridges in the revolver.
