Obituary: Rites Conducted for Gun Victim: The fate that marked James Nathan Douglas, 62, as the victim of an unexplained gun accident on November 11th, followed him relentless toward the grave last Friday in the old First District of this county. Mr. Douglas was standing with three friends watching a squirrel in a tree when a gun in the hand of another hunter standing behind the group, discharged almost severing Mr. Douglas's right leg near his ankle. Robert Bumpus, Jackson mail carrier, who held the gun, said he could not explain the accident. He had shot and killed a squirrel that did not fall from the tree. He had lowered the gun, holding it at arm's length and not touching the trigger, he said. He heard a noise and one man in the group ahead was falling to the ground. Mr. Bumpus carried the wounded man from the woods in a wagon, called an ambulance and started to Jackson in a truck, later transferring Mr. Douglas to an ambulance. Mr. Bumpus gave blood for a transfusion, but Douglas failed to rally.
