Hunter Shot Himself Dead
Special to The Inquirer.
SHARON, Pa., Dec. 14.---George H. Henderson, of New Castle, met with a horrible death to-day at Harbor Bridge, near here, while hunting. He exchanged guns with one of the party, securing a hammerless. He was not familiar with its workings and while crawling under some bushes discharged both barrels, the shot striking him in the forehead, the entire top of his head was shot away and he died instantly.
