SHOOTS DAUGHTER IN MISTAKE FOR BURGLAR
CALIENTE, Nev., Nov. 20.— Daisy Dinkle, daughter of a prominent business man of this place, was shot and painfully wounded by her father, John Dinkle, who believed her to be a burglar, when she entered her home shortly before midnight. The bullet passed entirely through the girl’s wrist, inflicting a painful though not dangerous wound.
Miss Dinkle had spent the evening at a skating rink and returned to her home about 11 o’clock. A few minutes late she again returned to the skating rink to bid her companion s good night. On entering her home an hour later she was mistaken for a burglar by her father, who having heard her enter the house once, believed her to be asleep.
