SHOT HIMSELF - A man named Louis FRYAU, residing at Jamestown, Tuolumne county, shot himself by accident on Saturday last, on Main street, near El Dorado. He had a 4-barreled breech-loading Sharp's revolver in a rear pocket of his pantaloons, which he attempted to draw out in order to get at his money when the hammer became entangled in the edge of the pocket and exploded the cap, driving the ball downwards about an inch and -, inflicting a painful wound. A physician was called but the sufferer refused to allow the wound to be probed, so the ball remains untouched. The wounded man started for home on the stage yesterday morning.
