          Eden Levitt,  the eighteen-yer-old son of the  Widow Levitt,  of Geneva, while shooting a revolver at that place Tuesday, was shot in the left hand.  The bullet, which was a thrity-two, passed through the left hand, tearing off the little finger and making a frightful wound.  Walter Jones,  who was standing near Levitt, was struck in the right arm by the bullet.  His injuries are not serious, however, Levitt is old enough to know better than to be handling a revolver around in a crowd in that manner, and has learned a lesson which will last him a life time.
