From Elmer Keefer, the courteous manager of the telephone office at Prosper, we learn that Wm. Sinclair, the villiage{sp} blacksmith at Mabel, was accidentally shot and killed Sunday evening. He was with a party of five out coon hunting. An object was seen by Otto Bach in a tree and thinking it was a coon raised the gun to shoot it. It disappeared before he had a chance to shoot, and in lowering the gun it was accidentally discharged. Mr. Sinclair was in range and became the victim. Deceased leaves a wife and three children.

The remains of William Sinclair, of Mabel, who was accidently shot on the night of the 9th, were on the 11th, followed to their last resting place in the Hesper cemetery by a large concourse of friends and neighbors.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born June 25, 1862 and is buried in the Hesper Public Cemetery.
