We learn that on Friday morning, a little boy of Cyrus Christy [sic], living a mile and a half northeast of Rosendale, killed himself while playing with a pistol. He had managed in some way to get hold of it and carried it off with him in the field near by, a short distance from the house. His grandmother in going into the field to carry water to some of the hands, found him dead, shot through the breast, the ball passing through the body.
