Scratch Causes Death.

As a Result of Game of Shinny Young Boy Lies Dead.

Salem, Ore., Feb. 24.—As a result of a small scratch upon the knuckle of the forefinger of the left hand, blood poison set in, and Fred Walling, the 16-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J.D. Walling, who reside near Lincoln, Spring valley, now lies dead at the home of his parents, and the latter are nearly prostrated with grief over the sad event, for the boy was the pride of the family, and, in fact, of the neighborhood.

Fred, in company with several other boys, on Tuesday of last week played a game of “shinny” at school, when he received a severe blow upon his left hand, which bruised it pretty badly, and made a slight abrasion upon the forefinger. Very little attention was paid to it at the time, but within a few days the finger began to get alarmingly sore, and a physician was called in.
