Melancholy accident --Little Girl Shot.--About 8 o'clock yesterday morning a distressing accident occurred at the residence of Mr. S. Morgan Ramsey, which has plunged a family into grief. On yesterday morning his son Norton, aged eleven years, having gone to a bureau to look for some tickets, saw a pistol, and innocently taking it out, pointed it at his sister, Kate Ella Ramsey, aged nine years, who was dressing herself. He exclaimed, "take care, I'll shoot you." The domestic who was present cried out, "don't do that, I'll call your father." She started to call Mr. Ramsey, when the pistol was discharged, the ball entering the body of Kate, breaking her left collar bone and traversing her lungs. She died before medical assistance could be summoned.--Phila. Inquirer, 19th.
