ACCIDENT IN THE MILITIA CAMP AT DOLGELLEY. A SERGEANT SHOT. An accident of an alarming nature occurred on Friday last at the 200 yards i,anke where the Car- narvon and Merioneth Militia were practising musketry. It appears that Sergeant Boneham, a native of Leamington, bad been told off to mari- the targets. He took shelter behind a butt" made of earthworks, but a bullet from one of the new Magazine rifles now in use Penetrated through the 10ft. of earth which made up the butt struck the unfortunate man below the shoulder blade, and finally lodged itself just beneath the skin of his right breast. He was conveyed in an ambulance to the camp, where the bullet was extracted by Drs. Griffiths and J. Edward Jones. The wounded man passed a fair night, and was on Saturday re- moved to the hospital at Wrexham. An Engineer and a body of men were ordered to strengthen the shelter and musketry practice was for a time abandoned.
