      Allen W. Gerner, aged fifteen years, met an instantaneous death about 9 o'clock last Saturday morning on the farm of John Walker, one mile south of Waterloo, when the shotgun which he was carrying was accidentally discharged as he was climbing over a wire fence, the bullets piercing his heart. The boy is the son of the former editor of the Waterloo Dawn. The accident occurred while Allen and his brother Carl, who is eighteen years of age, were on a hunting trip. They had barely started upon their expedition at the time of the affair. In some way as Allen was climbing the fence the trigger of the gun became caught in the wire and the entire load entered his body. The shot inflicted a hole about two inches in diameter just above the boy's heart. His brother rushed to the Walker farm and notified the people there. Mr. Walker immediately secured a rig and brought the body to Waterloo. Both the boy's parents are living and he is also survived by one other brother besides Carl.
