Fatal Gun Carrying Habit
Stockton, Cal., Sept. 29. Ė After the removal of 42 inches of his intestines and the transfusion of a pint of his sonís blood to replace that lost in the operation, Dr. JEROME M. WALLACE, a well-known dentist of San Francisco, is dead here today, as the result of the pistol-carrying habit.

While leaning over to drink out of a faucet at Farmington Saturday night, an automatic pistol dropped from his pocket and was discharged. The bullet passed through his abdomen, perforating his intestines nine times.
