Adam Harness

A Sad Accident.
Mr. Adam Harness, residing on the Eli Harvey farm, about three miles south of Rolling Prairie, met with a sudden and tragic death Sunday afternoon. Together with a brother he was out hunting, and stopped in the orchard on the place to get a few apples to eat. Mr. Harness was on the ground while the other climbed up the tree to shake off the apples. Suddenly the latter heard the report of a gun that he had left standing against the truck of the tree, and looking down was horrified to see his brother falling to the ground with the top of his head torn off. In dislodging the fruit Adam had accidently struck the gun, which caused its discharge. The charge entered the head above the eyes and tore the top of the skull into fragments. Death was instantaneous. The victim had a wife and two children.
