ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING
W. D. Winters Meets With Fatal
Acccident While Hunting.
On Sunday morning an accidental
shooting occurred at Slab Creek that
shocked the entire neighborhood \V.
D. W inter, his eleven-vear-old son and
F»ed Affolter went bear hunting that
morning and when a few miles from
home sat down on a fallen tree to rest.
This was about 10 o’clock and while in
Conversation W inter’s gun, which was
leaning against the tree, slipped and
was about to fall to the ground.
W inters grabbed the barrel near the
muzzle and sharply drew it toward him.
The hammer caught and discharged the
gun, the charge entering his abdomen
and went upward into his body.
Fred Affolter suggested going tor a
doctor but the wounded man realizing
the seriousness of his injury, said he
would be dead before a doctor could
reach him. However Mr. Affolter
started but lost his way and did not
get out of the woods until quite late in
the afternoon.
The little son was'alone with his dying
father. Mr. W inters attem pted to walk
home and succeeded in going about fifty
yards when he fell, telling his son to be
a g >od boy and expressing a wish that
he might see his wife before he died.
The unfortunate man lived about an
hour and a half after the accident. After
dissolution had taken place the boy
picked up his father’s gun and started
for help to bring his father’s body home.

Fearing he could not find his way and
coming to a creek that he knew IF w d
close to his home he walked ankle deep
down the creek, and was the first to
bring the sad intelligence to his mother.
Dr. Boales, of Tillamook, was called
and arrived about 4 o’clock, and after
gathering the facts, decided an inquest
was unnecessary.
The funeral took place from the
church at Chetown, conducted by Rev.
F. S. Ford, and was largely attended.
W. D. Winters, son of Mr. and Mrs.
A. J. Winters, who reside in the valley,
was born at Newberg, Oregon, Yamhill
county, in July, 1881. He leaves a wife
and four children—Lola, W alter, George
and Alice, also a mother, father, six
brothers and two sisters.

sympathy of the entire community.
