Transcription

American Killed, Shooting in Jungle: Alone on a shooting scaffold in one of the dense tropical forests of Burmah, British India, B.E. Montgomery of Claremore, Okla., bled to death after he had accidentally discharged his gun and shot one of his arms off. His body was found the next day by a searching party. He had gone into the jungle to shoot tigers. Montgomery had been in Burmah about two years, having been connected with the Burmah Oil Company. He was famous for his shooting exploits. The photograph, which shows Montgomery with a leopard he had killed, was sent in by W.D. Boyce, the Blade's publisher who obtained it when he was in Burma recently on his trip through the Far East.
