A FATAL ACCIDENT
Joseph Miller Killed Yesterday in Vergennes. VERGENNES, Aug. 27. - Joseph Miller was fatally injured this afternoon while at work with a gang of men with a derrick building a wall at the horse nail factory. He was struck upon the head by a large pulley swinging around, caused by the giving away of a guy rope, which let the derrick fall. His skull was crushed in, and he died at 6 o'clock this evening. A widow and six adult children survive him.

Joseph Miller was fatally injured last week Tuesday while at work hoisting stone at the dock of the National Horse Nail company, being struck on the head by one of the iron guy rods, which fell, owing to the giving way of the supports. His skull was fractured and he survived but a short time. He was a stone mason, had lived in Vergennes for a long time, and is survived by a wife and six children. He was 50 years old.
