GIRL'S DEATH.


PEA RIFLE ACCIDENT. 


CHARTERS TOWERS. September 26.

Peggy Driscoll (aged 9 years), lost her life at Ravenswood yesterday as the result of a pea rifle accident. A bullet entered her hand, passing through the fleshy portion between the thumb and the forefinger, and then struck her over the right eyebrow. The accident occurred at 1 o'clock, and the girl died last night while being conveyed by Ambulance to Charters Towers.
