Mr. Terrel Hulsey, of Paulding county, while at a neighbor’s house last Saturday evening, took a gun and went out to shoot a chicken.  He put the gun down on the ground and placed the muzzle in his mouth and blew down its deathly cavern to see if it was loaded.  The hammer being on the tube, he could not determine, so he put his foot on the hammer, and the gun fired, the ball lodging in the brain.  Some gentleman present caught him before he could fall and laid him down, and he died instantly.  Mr. Hulsey was a nice young man and highly respected.  The sad accident is deeply regretted by our citizens.  So says the Marietta Journal.
