Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIOGE -r.h African man killed by own arrow SALISBURY, Rhodesia (CP) A coroner's court here has on record the case of an African who shot himself to death with his own arrow. The dead man lost his life when his jugular vein was severed. The only witness to the incident was the man's brother who came under strong suspicion of murder. The court records detail the story the brother gave. He said the two of them had gone on a hunting ex- pedition with bows and arrows. They went out in search of antelope, but had no luck at all. Towards evening they came across a troop of monkeys and thinking that a monkey or two would be better than an empty pot they gave chase. Finally they managed to trap a group of monkeys in a wild fig treee. The hunters stationed themselves un- der the tree and one fired an arrow at one of the monkeys. The arrow missed its target and passed through the branches of the tree. Then it fell back along the same course, again missed the branches, and struck the hunter in the neck. His brother said before he could react and do anything about the accident the man died from loss of blood. The story was plausible. The hunter probably still peering up at his unsuccessful shot would have exposed his neck to the falling arrow. But what impressed the court, apart from the man's obvious sincerity, was his actions after the accident. After he had brought his dead brother's body back to the village he immediately set off to pick up the monkeys' trail to take vengeance on the animals he blamed for his brother's death. i i i No use to the wife Land deal will leave Calgary man homeless CHICAGO (CP) Work, the old saying goes, is the curse of the drinking classes. The bar-room proverb has received a measure of scien- tific endorsement from Ar- chives of Environmental Health, a publication of the American Medical Associ- ation. It reports on a study of vic- tims of Degreasers' Flush, a harmless but embarrassing disease that afflicts factory workers who handle trichlo- roethylene, a solvent used to remove grease from machin- ery and parts. Workmen exposed to the chemical who stopped for a few beers or a shot of whisky on the way home developed vivid red blotches on their faces, said the research group from the Medical College of Wisconsin. The blotches were so unsightly that the victims shunned taverns to avoid deri- sion. CALGARY (CP) Kim Dong, 82, is one of about 200 persons who will find themselves homeless later this year when part of the city's Chinatown goes under the bulldozer. For Kim Dong, the land deal is one of two made 50 years apart that constitute land- marks in his life. In 1915, Kim Dong, a third generation grocer in a southern Canton family business in China, asked his parents if he could go to Canada. His parents refused per- mission, but his grandmother overruled the decision and arranged for the sale of a plot of family land to raise the re- quired It took him 14 years, until 1939, before he could return to Canton with the money to redeem his family's land. He worked as a cook to ac- cumulate the money to repay his grandmother. He has lived for the last 12 years in a housekeeping room, his friends dead or returned long ago to China.
