but the young man's aspirations
were cut short Saturday afternoon
by instant deth.
Lambert was fond of a gun and
had taken his gun to the gin and
repair shop of Lambert & CVs and
laid it down upon a bale of cotton
lying in the gin yard.
After greeting the men at the gin
he returned to the yard ai.d in at
tempting to lift the gun with the
muzzle pohiting to his body, the
hammers caught 'in the bagging,
and ccckcd the triggers. A little
jerke and the work was bone. The
hammers fell and the loa.?3 of both
barel3 emptied into theyenng man's
stomach below the ribo 0:1 tie right
side, coursing unw::rd to the heart.
Befcrc anyone could rea:.h him, the
boy was dead, death h v ing resulted
instantly. It w)3 indeed a ead and
