Accidentally Shot

Roanoke Beacon  – 22 Jul 1898

Accidentally Shot — On Friday night last Mr. B.F. Nurney was examining a new pistol which had just been purchased, when it was discharged, sending the bullet through the palm of his left hand, making an ugly and painful wound.  Dr. W.H. Ward was called and dressed the wound, and at his writing friend Nurney is getting along fine.  Another case of “Didn’t know it was loaded.”
