Obituary

James G Howard, a prominent farmer, was accidently killed last Sunday in the woods, while drawing logs with his horse. The body was recovered about 5 o'clock at night, with his neck broken.

Howard was in the employ of the Estey organ many years, and was an old soldier. He leaves a wife and one sister.
