Discharge of SHOTGUN HITS WIfE’S TEMPLE

INSTANTANEOUS DEATH OCCURS FROM ACCIDENTAL GUNSHOT

WAS 52 YEARS OLD

Mrs. C. E. Carney of Creston, Who's Son Clifton Works in This Office, Shot

"Cliff" Carney, linotype operator on the Times-Republican of this city received word Monday afternoon from Creston that his mother was seriously injured in a car accident and urged to come home at once. The party talking to him, it was learned later did not have the nerve to tell him the truth.

Since Monday this office has been striving along as best we could to keep up the work in this office.

The particulars follows:

Mrs. C. [laude] E. [rwin] Carney, 52 years old, resident of Creston, was accidentally shot and killed in her home, 307 North Walnut street, Monday, afternoon when a shotgun which her husband was cleaning accidentally discharged.

According to her husband, the full discharge of the shotgun struck Mrs. Carney, mangling her head.

Mr. Carney, grief stricken, was unable to give police or the coroner at Creston a full account of the accident.

A neighbor, attracted to the house by the shot told police that Mr. Carney was unable to tell how it happened, excepting that he was talking to his wife when the gun discharged, sending the charge into Mrs. Carney's head.

When he entered the house, the neighbor said, the gun was leaning against a chair.

Dr. Orlo Coakley, who was summoned to the Carney home, pronounced death was caused by an accidental gunshot wound and ordered the body removed to the Deitrick funeral parlors.

According to Dr. Coakley, the charge of shot struck Mrs. Carney in the left temple, causing instantaneous death.

Mr. Carney, one of his neighbors said, had returned from hunting a short time before the accident.

Mrs. Carney is survived by her sons, Clifton E. [lmer] of Bedford, Percy R.[aymond], Nevada, and Kenneth H. at home.

Funeral was held Wednesday January 18, at 2 o'clock. An obituary will be published next week.
