Then Left His Lifeless Body Lying in the Woods.
"Jack" Wilsey Accidentally Shot by George Harris—Latter Had Not Courage to Tell and Was Arrested While Returning From Church

"Jack" Wilsey was found dead in a piece of woods, in the town of Salisbury, Herkimer county, Sunday morning. There was a bullet hole in his head and another in his back. , George Harris was arrested some time later in the day, while returning from church, and confessed that he shot Wilsey Saturday morning, mistaking him for a deer. Harris is about 17 years of age and his victim about 50. He said that he had not told of the accident because he was too frightened.

Wilsey and Harris were of a hunting party composed of themselves and Jerry Jelly and Chris Sasman, who started from Salisbury Saturday morning in quest of deer. Wilsey and Harris were partners, They came, "to a stream in the vicinity known as Mexico" and here the two men separated, Harris crossing the stream after a time he recrossed and came to a knoll, over the top of which he could see something moving, which he took to be deer. He fired and hit a rotten tree and then fired again, striking Wilsey this time at the base of the skull. Still believing that he was shooting at a deer he reloaded his gun and shot Wilsey a second time, the last shot lodging in the unfortunate man's back. Hurrying over the knoll he was appalled and horrified to discover that he had killed his hunting partner, who laid prone on the ground dead. His first thought, according to his confession, was to seek help, and he hastily made for a lumber camp, which he knew to be not far away. He skirted the woods, running as fast as his strength would permit, but when he arrived at the camp he - had not the courage to tell of the awful ' accident. He went home, spent the night in terror and went to church Sunday morning.

The body of Wilsey was discovered by Arden Moore, who was on his way to a lumber camp to procure some clothes which he had left there. He notified the Salisbury authorities, who in turn notified sheriff Klock, of Herkimer, who with Deputy Sheriff Randall, of Little Falls, District Attorney Lewis, Coroner Douglass and Dr. Hunt went to the scene of the accident.

In the meantime Sheriff Klock made an investigation as to who had done the A shooting. Discovering that Harris was the last man seen with Wilsey and that the shells found at the scene of the accident fitted his gun, and that of no other of the hunting- party, he proceeded to look for his man, and found him, as stated, returning from morning worship. At first Harris denied all knowledge of the affair, but upon being pressed by the authorities, and shown the evidence which they had against him, he confessed and said that he had not told of the accident because he was too frightened. He was brought to Herkimer by the sheriff and lodged in jail.

Not much is known of Wilsey. He is said to have worked at different jobs in : the vicinity of Salisbury and that he formerly lived in Copperstown, where he his a mother living. The authorities are apparently satisfied that the shooting was an accident and account for Harris silence after the affair on the score of his youth and inexperience. It is said that Wilsey wore a light grey cap, much the color of a deer, and it is probable that this fact contributed, to the mistake that cost him his life.

DROWNED IN CHASE'S LAKE. Herbert Klock and Howard Walters, While Fishing From a Boat, Saturday, Lost Their Lives:

Herbert Klock and Howard Walters, near neighbors residing at Chase's Lake, both of whom were in the vicinity of 60 years of age, last Saturday evening went fishing in the lake with a flat-bottom boat' As they failed to return to their respective homes during the night, Mrs. Klock went to the lake about five o'clock Sunday morning and found the boat floating near the shore. The boat was partially filled wit£ water, the oars were in the locks, and a lard pall partially filled with bullheads was in the boat. Mrs. Klock immediately summoned assistance and during the forenoon the remains of her husband were recovered from fifteen feet of water, about four rods from shore. During the afternoon the remains of Mr. Walters were recovered in the same locality. Considerably mystery surrounds the drowning of the men. . Each was a good swimmer and thoroughly familiar with the lake. There wer6 no parks on either body indicating an injury, and the only solution of the drowning Is that the men were engaged in dynamiting fish in the lake, which theory is substantiated by the statement that one or two loud explosions were heard about 11 o'clock Saturday night. However, this solution of is merely conjecture.

Crane and Dr. H. A. the drowning Dr. P. A. Bassett, who visited the scene of the, accident, decided that death was due to accidental drowning. Mr. Klock is survived by his wife and one child, and Mr. Walters by his wife and two children.

Gouverneur Woman No Longer Carries Money in Stocking.

Mrs. Mabel Klock, of Gouverneur, will not carry money in her stocking in the future. Mrs. Klock came to this conclusion after losing the use of $15 for a few days. In a dream she thought she found the money. When she woke up, she looked in the coal bin and found the three five-spots.

Mrs. Klock had considered her stocking a safe place to deposit her funds. One day last week she dipped her favorite “First National Bank'” into the soapsuds. She hung the stocking on the line and emptied the wash water into the coal bin to lay the dust. Sunday night she dreamed she had found the money. In the morning she went down cellar for a scuttle of coal. There lay her savings, none the worse for the bath accidentally received.
