Careless shooting in close proximity to the city limits nearly caused the death of Mrs. Phillips on Monday evening.

Mr. Cooper, whilst out shooting gophers with a small calibre rifle, missed the gopher and wounded Mrs. Phillips, who was out walking at the time.

The bullet entered at the hip and made a nasty wound, but medical assistance was immediately secured and she was taken to the hospital where the bullet was removed. Mrs. Phillips will recover.
