    Notes 
    • A DOUBLE SHOOTING ACCIDENT.
      Melbourne, January 30 [1912].

      A serious shooting accident occurred at Indigo Creek, Chiltern, last night. Mr. J. Cheesley, who was breaking in a young horse for Mr. W. Chambers, had his gun with him in the vehicle. On the way home he called at Mr. Chambers' house for a bag of chaff, and after putting it in the vehicle he asked Mr. Chambers to go for a drive. The latter consented, and had just taken his seat in the buggy when the gun went off. The charge entered Mr. Cheesley's left arm at the elbow and tore the flesh and muscles away to the shoulder. Several pellets struck Mr. Chambers on the head, and one entered his temple severing an artery. Dr. Harkin attended the patients, who are very weak from loss of blood and shock. [4]
