Accidental shooting Dr. H.H. Isaacs suffered a painful wound on Tuesday afternoon. He was loading a 25-calibre pistol. The cartridge stuck and in forcing it into the chamber the gun was discharged, the ball taking effect in his left groin. Mrs. Isaacs and the office girl, Miss Margaret Moody, were in the room at the time. At first the doctor refused to believe that he was wounded. Dr. Straughan was called from his office across the hall and under his direction the wounded man was taken to Crawfordsville. Mrs. Isaacs accompanied him with Chas. D. Barr driving. Dr. Warren, a brother-in- law of Dr. Isaacs, of Marshall, was notified by phone and reached Crawfordsville but a few minutes after them. The x-ray examination showed that the ball had passed around the peritoneal cavity and lodged in the back of the hip. Dr. Warren took Dr. Isaacs to Terre Haute to have the ball removed and to have serum administered to ward off danger of infection. The ball was removed on Wednesday. A small piece was chipped off of the hipbone. It is thought that he will be home in a few days. Mrs. Isaacs is with him. Waveland Independent Waveland, Montgomery County, Indiana Dec 31, 1926 - Stricken Dr. and Mrs. Isaacs and daughters went to Marshall Sunday to visit Dr. and Mrs. Warren. While eating dinner, Dr. Isaacs developed a severe headache, such as have been troubling him lately. Dr. Warren made an examination and found a severe case of acute high blood pressure. He immediately took him to the Union Hospital for treatment. He will probably be there for some weeks.
