GIRL SHOOTS HERSELF TO SHOW HER “NERVE”
Ten-Year Lass Leans Over Muzzle of Winchester, Pulls Trigger With Stick.
Gaddes, S. D., Aug. 28 - To show her father that she “had the nerve” to shoot herself, the ten-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John STOTZ leaned over the muzzle of a Winchester shotgun yesterday and released the trigger with a stick, at the same time saying: “Tell papa I had the nerve to.”
Following the report, the wounded child ran out of the house and fell dead in the road.
“I didn’t think he had the nerve to do a thing like that,” was the remark of John STOTZ, when a neighbor blew off his head a few weeks ago. The child was impressed with the remark and frequently since then had declared she would not be afraid to do the same thing.
