Obituary

FATAL ACCIDENT -- A sad accident happened last Monday. Mr. John Davidson by some means received a kick from his horse in the stable, and was found by his son under the horse, insensible. The son received two kicks, one on the arm and one on the leg, before he could get his father out of the stable. Mr. Davidson died in the afternoon of the same day, his skull being badly fractured. He leaves a wife and three children.
