Delmar News 7 Jan 1914


Boy Accidentally Shot While Walking in Woods. 

DELMAR, Del., Jan. 6. The local Jr. Order United American Mechanics will present a handsome American flag to Calloway's school, on Saturday. January 10th. Prominent speakers will be present when the presentation Is made. 

Although muskrat are reported as being very plentiful on the Eastern Shore, one would not think so from the price local dealers are charging for them. Heretofore they have always sold for ten cents each or three for twenty-five cents, but this year they are 15 cents each straight. 

While Walking through the woods; in the rear of Carroll Crockett's home, Lorin Sterling; aged 11 years was shot though not dangerously wounded. The shot was fired from the weapon of an unseen gunner and It Is believed that it was accidental. The bullet entered the breast but was soon removed by Dr. R. R. Norris.
