  One of the saddest accidental deaths that ever occurred in this section of the county occurred in South Wabash, yesterday. In the morning Frank Ridgeway, son of Friend David Ridgeway, aged about twenty years, started out squirrel hunting. He carried a muzzle loading gun which he had long been used to handling. When night came he did not return and early this morning  his family seriously alarmed at his absence started out in search of  him. About nine o'clock they found him lying stark and cold in death near the large corn crib of Mr. Allen. His gun was laying near discharged and gapping wound in the side of Frank's face told the story. It is supposed that while loading the gun it was accidentally discharged and the load entering his face ranged up into his brain. Death must have been instantaneous. His faithful dog stayed beside the body all night and was found guarding it in the morning. Frank was a bright and promising young man whose shocking and untimely death brings deep mourning to a large circle of friends.
