Carl A Nyhus the well known bank employee was shot yesterday in a most unaccountable manner while at the teller's window on the bank. Mr Nyhus had bveen talking to a customer at the window and had just turned away,when in some way a gun which is always within easy reach of the cashier's counter dropped to the floor and exploded,the bullet crashing through his ankle.Mr Nyhus was given immediate attention and hurried in an automobile to his home where physicians were summoned.It is probably that an artery was cut and that the wound will prove very painful and serious.The gun was of thirty eight calibre and the ball has not been extracted.
