Genoa Man Killed
Sun­day Rel­a­tive
Of Nels John­son

John Young, Genoa busi­ness man who was acci­den­tal­ly killed Sun­day while try­ing to kill a hog with a .33 cal­iber revolver, was a broth­er-in-law of Nels John­son of Ord, the Quiz learns. His wife is Mr. Johnson’s sis­ter and the Ord man will go to Genoa to attend the funer­al ser­vices.

News­pa­per sto­ries of the acci­dent say that a hog had bro­ken its leg while in the chute at a Genoa slaugh­ter house and Mr. Young was try­ing to kill it with a revolver. His first shot only wound­ed the ani­mal and while maneu­ver­ing for a bet­ter posi­tion Mr. Young slipped and fell, the revolver dis­charg­ing acci­den­tal­ly and the bul­let pen­e­trat­ing his brain. He was a promi­nent busi­ness man at Genoa.
