Donald, the ten-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Morton Ledsam, of Wellington, had his eye removed at the Orange Hospital on Christmas night as a result of an accident at his home that morning. He was playing with his cousin, who had an air gun as a Christmas gift, and the latter placed the gun to the key hole of a door and fired it just as young Led-. sam looked through the hole . The slug that was in the gun entered, his right eye, and he was immediately taken to a doctor, who advised that he be transferred to Orange. The Wellington Ambulance telephoned the Orange service, which met the former a few miles the other side of Molong, and conveyed the boy to Dr. Colvin's surgery, and thence to- the hospital. &nbsp; &nbsp;
