George Lundane Seriously Injured on the Bain Farm
George Lundane, a boy sixteen years of age, employed at the Chicago-Kenosha Hosiery company's plant, was the victim of an unusual accident on Sunday afternoon and he is now at the Kenosha hospital suffering from a bullet wound inflicted by a shot fired by Manley Mills, a well known employee of the Thomas Jeffery company.
Lundane was shot on the Bain farm just after four o'clock. With a party of friends he had been playing on the farm, when without any warning he felt a sting of pain in the left side of his back and an examination showed that he had been shot. The bullet, which had been fired from a twenty-two calibre automatic Winchester rifle, had passed entirely thorough his body and the boy found it just under the skin below the left breast. He could not get hold of the bullet with his hands. The boy was terribly frightened and he started to run across the field when he came up to Mills and his party who had been shooting at a target.
"You have shot me," the boy shouted and pointed to the wound in his breast. Mills and the members of his party thought the boy was joking, as he had not been in the range of the gun at any time, but when it was discovered that the boy had been shot, he was placed aboard a motor vehicle and hurried to the hospital as rapidly as possible. Dr. Robinson was called upon to attend the wounded boy and he had no trouble removing the bullet. The bullet had entered just above the heart. It passed clear through his body, but the physicians do not believe that any vital part was struck. Later the boy was suffering from hemorrhages and it is possible that the wound will take a dangerous turn. Mills and his associates are doing all in their power to see that the boy has proper attention.
Mills stated that he with a party of friends had gone out into the country early Sunday afternoon and that they had stopped along the road near the Bain farm and had been shooting at a target placed on the fence. Just how the boy could have been hit Mills could not explain. The boy was playing under a hill a quarter of a mile from the place where the Mills party were shooting and it is thought that the bullet struck something and glanced off.

John White was born in Down county, Ireland, in 1818, and died in his home at Millburn, Oct. 5, 1906. In 1850 he left his home and native land and came to Chicago. Leaving Chicago he settled in this community where he has lived ever since. In 1854 he united with the Presbyterian church. In this same year he was united in marriage with her who now mourns his loss. Mr. White has lived in this community and in the midst of this people for more than fifty years and it is known that the home thus established by this marriage has been a home in which God and love ruled supreme.
