Moses Frank

At Hobart, Lake county, a few days ago, Moses Frank, a promising young man of 23, son of William Frank, one of the oldest citizens of the place, accompanied by a young brother, who was going out to shoot at a mark in the field, was shot by the accidental discharge of his gunas they were leaving the house. The gun was loaded with a marble, and was carried by the younger brother, who was walking behind. The charge entered the head of Moses, tearing the whole back of the head off, and causing death shortly. The brother and father are almost crazed with grief. The brother has to be watched to keep him from self-destruction.
