The Bemidji Daily Pioneer; “Infant Hit By Stray Bullet. Babe Instantly Killed in its Mother’s Arms.”; April 03, 1906; p.1
Interesting how journalism has changed over the last century. I don’t think the line “scattering its brains” would be included in a story today. Also, neither the child’s name nor its gender is ever mentioned.
This story was carried in a number of newspapers across the country, including The Atlanta Constitution, The Daily Northwestern (Oshkosh, Wis.) and The Grand Rapids Tribune (Grand Rapids, Wis.).
