St u aS he reached for the package Mr. Anderson was startled to hear the window crash and when he looked up he saw a hole in the pane. At first Mr. Anderson believed the hole had been made by a stone flung from the wheels of a passing car but when he couldn't find the stone, he began to get worried and was about rndy to call the sheriff for an investigation. However, a few moments later Verne Martinson, proprietor of a Ringsted cafe, came running across the street to explain that the ho.c hnd been caused by a bullet accidentally fired from a rifle he and some other men were examining. They apparently did not know it was loaded and Mr. Martinson was pretty much relieved to learn thnt no one had been hurt. The bullet was the soft-nose type and could not be found.
