We (Mercury) regret to hear of the death of Private DANIEL of the District Police, stationed at Kwelera. He was carrying a gun loaded with small shot over his shoulder when by some accident the weapon fell to the ground, causing the charge to go off, entering just above the hollow of Mr. DANIEL’s foot and badly shattering the muscles. Dr. BICKFORD sent him to Komgha and every attention was paid to the injured man, but tetanus set in and resulted in death on the 6th. An unfortunate wife and two children are left to claim sympathy in their trouble.
