BENALLA Thursday

A young man named Lloyd is now lying in a precarious condition at a hotel here through the careless use of firearms. On Tuesday Lloyd was playing with a seven chambered revolver at Greta, and having fixed the six chambers, he supposing the weapon was empty, brandished it about, when the other chamber went off, the bullet lodging in his temple. He was immediately brought into Benalla, and placed under the treatment of Dr Nicholson, who probed the wound yesterday, but has not yet extracted the bullet which is near the brain. Lloyd is brother to the unfortunate man who was killed in a scuffling match about six months ago, at Greta, by his cousin (another Lloyd)
