DARTMOOR. September 13. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 22 September 1876

DARTMOOR. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) September 18, I am sorry to have to report a fatal accident to a youth from the careless use of firearms. The deceased, 14 years of age, the son of William Pratt, left his father's house on Sunday last in company with a younger brother and the son of Mr. Blood a farmer on the Dairy. The deceased before climbing a tree placed the gun against it pointing upwards, and, on coming down, the gun exploded the charge striking him on the side of the face, and probably penetrating the brain, as he died almost immediately. It is supposed that the lad in coming down the tree had kicked against the gun at full cock, and hence the melancholy end. It it hardly probable that an inquest will   be held, as the boy's brother and Blood's son were both witnesses of the accident, and there can be no doubt as to the cause. This untoward accident has cast a gloom over our quiet neighbourhood; and apart from other considerations it shows how cautious young...
