August 10, 1923 – Henry McCloskey, 20 year old native boy, was shot through the index finger of his right hand this week at Allen Bay when a 25-35 rifle was accidentally discharged. The young man was fishing and had stuck his rifle butt in the mud. He reached for the gun and in pulling it toward him the piece was accidentally discharged, the bullet striking McCloskey in the finger. He was brought to town and the member was amputated by Dr. Jones who also injected tetanus antitoxin as a preventative of lockjaw.
