Accidentally Shot and Killed Himself

Mr Hile Marlow of Alexander, Gwaltney township, near Grade accidentally shot and killed himself Wednesday night about 10 o'clock. His dog got to barking at something and Marlow got up and took his gun out to see what the dog was barking at. As he was returning he stepped up in the door of his house and as he started in he dropped the gun and it was discharged. The load entered his shoulder tearing it nearly off. Drs Little of Taylorsville, JE King and Ed King were sent for and they amputated his arm taking it off at the shoulder. Marlow lived until the next evening and died.

Marlow's wife died four or five years ago. He was about 45 or 50 years old and leaves six children.

NOTE: Family says that Hile Marlow was shot by the law and did not shoot himself. (ea)
