Shot His Head Off
Wellman, Ia. Oct. 3. – Marvin Livezey, the 12 year old son of Walter Livezey, a blacksmith, was killed last night by the accidental discharge of a shotgun. Marvin was playing with two younger children of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Lewis at the Lewis residence while the latter was at neighbors calling. The shotgun which was loaded fell from where the children were playing and was discharged. The top of the child’s skull was blown off, killing him instantly. The funeral will be held today.
