Marion Adsit

Last Thursday a telegram was received from Grand Meadow, Minnesota, announcing the accidental shooting of Marion Adsit, son of Elijah Adsit, of Washington Township. The relatives immediately started for Minnesota, and on their arrival learned that the boy could not live, and yesterday word was received that he was dead. The remains will arrive to-morrow at 10 o'clock, and funeral services probably be conducted in the M. E. church. Marion had been working in Grand Meadow for the past summer, and was soon to return home, but in handling a revolver the weapon was discharged, causing death. While at his home in Washington township he once narrowly escaped a similar fate.
