Obituary

William Parsons of Middlesex accidentally discharged a shotgun last week Sunday, the contents entering the breast just above the heart, and causing death a few minutes later. Parson was trying to shoot a hawk. He was sitting with the gun cocked when his wife called him suddenly, and in getting up he discharged the gun. He was 50 years of age and leaves a wife and two children.
