Walter Weber, cx-soldlcr and
millwright at the nrooks-Scanlon
mill, met his death two miles south
of Ilend early Monday afternoon
while rabbit hunting, when the .22
caliber automatic rifle he carried
was discharged as ho tripped whllo
going through a barbed wire fence.
The bullet entered bU right tomplc.
passing 'out through the left eye,
death apparently resulting from
Tho body was found by S-year-old
Floyd Crcson, son ot Mr. and Mrs.
J. T Creson, who ran home, great
ly frightened, shortly beforo 4
o'clock In the afternoon to tell bis
parents. A brother, Victor, re
mained by tho body, while Richard
Herold and Clarence Monica!, em
ployes ot the Bend Water. Light &
Power company, were sent In to no
tify tho authorities. Sheriff S. E.
Roberts, Chief or Police L. A. W.
Nixon. County Physician R. W.
Hendersbott and others motored to
the scene ot the tragedy. Coroner
C. P. Nlswonger arriving a short
time after. Death was so plainly
the result of accident that no in
quest was deemed necessary.

khaT?t trousers wow-by"!"?- young
wan" was pulled down and bad ap
parently caught on tho lower strand
pt the wire as he passed through,
being released m he rolled bait
over on his back uTt.er the firing
ot the fatal shot. The fact that
his right. thumb. Instead ot his fore
finger exerted the pressure on tho
trigger necessary to 'release tho tir
ing pin is also considered as highly
Important in proving the theory of
v Was in lUth Infantry.
Weber had been troubled with a
lame back for several dtys, his
friend said, and at 11 o'clock jes
tcrday morning had called at tho
Chase home, asking for his rifle
nnd stating that ho waa going rab
bit shooting. Ho wss in excellent
spirits, but said that he 'did not In
tend going back to work until he
was entirely recovered. As far as
is known, it is tho last time he
was seen allro by an acquaintance.
Became, ot tho dlstanco to tho
Chase home in the mill district to
tho point where Wober mot hla
death, the rough ground to be tra
versed, and from tho fact 'that ho
had not entlroly recorered from
his lamene&i, it Is supposed that
tho accident must have taken place
shortly after noon.

dent of Bend for tho vast five
months. lie waa the brother of
