JACK KATZENMEYER Found Dead by Companions at Base of Bank Where He Slipped.
VICKSBURG, MISS. Jan. 8 - Relatives and friends were shocked this afternoon upon the return her of a hunting party to hear that Jack KATZENMEYER, one of the young men of the party, had accidentally shot the top of his head off dying instantly.  The hunting party consisted of John ZIMMERMAN, George MILLER, H. H. HOSSLEY and the unfortunate young man.  They left the city early in the week in a gasoline boat and went to Diamond Island, near which point the accident happened.  There were no witnesses to Mr. KATZENMEYER's death, but the young men believe from what they could see when the body was found that Mr. KATZENMEYER had slipped down a bank and the gun was in some manner discharged, sending the load through the top of his head.  KATZENMEYER was interested in the KATZENMEYER Brothers' Bakery.
