Frank Zipp and his men returned from a Christmas party at his Crow Peak ranch yesterday forenoon. After arriving at his store, Frank disarmed and put away his artillery. A British Bull Dog, 45 calibre, formed part of his armament, and from this he removed all the cartridges but two, and thinking they were all out, a young man in his employ took it, and as it was self-cocking, soon had an explosion, the ball crashing through a heavy French plate glass window, shivering it to atoms, and striking the frozen ground in the street, flattened out and quit. It was fortunate no one was passing at the time, or we might have been compelled to chronicle a death.
In regard to: Zipp, Frank.
