Hamilton, June 8. Captain McLeod, Wild Weßt showman, who was recently fined at Auck land for random shootiDg with a pea rifle, brought! himself into further prominence on Saturday night at the Waikato winter show. A part of McLeod's performance is to bore boles with bullets through three fancy pieces held up by members of the audience, and shoot off the ash on the cigarette in people's mouths. While a young man named Leslie Wilson was standing talking to some others smoking a cigarette, McLeod is alleged to have fired a bullet which entered Wilson's cheek, and found an exit through the mouth, grazing the tongue and knocking out three of his teeth. A prosecution is probable.
