In 1883, Henry Ziegland of Honey Grove, Texas broke off his engagement to Miss Maysie Tichnor.
Heartbroken and devastated … Maysie committed suicide.
When Maysie’s brother heard the tragic news, he paid a visit to Henry’s farm.
Upon his arrival … he pulled out a pistol, shot Henry … and then himself!
However, Henry did not die, as the bullet had only grazed his face … and lodged itself into a nearby tree.
20 years later, Henry decided to chop down that same tree.
As he chopped away, he found the axe he was using could not do the job!
So, he bored a few holes into the tree and placed a small amount of dynamite in each hole.
Better to be safe than sorry, he moved about 50 feet away … and set off the explosion.
The bullet … (which had lodged into that same tree, some 20 years earlier), was instantly blown out of the tree … striking Henry in his left temple – and killing him, on the spot!
