A sad accident took place at Ripton on the 27th of January. Mr. Peter Stone, whose house is in East Middlebury, went to Ripton to chop cord wood. He went into the woods in the morning, and with another person had fallen several trees which fell at random and crossing each other. Stone was standing on the body of a tree that was elevated somewhat from the ground, and under it was was the body of another tree. In the course of cutting he slipped and fell backward, striking his head upon the lower tree and breaking his spine between his shoulders and the base of his head. He lingered nine hours and died.
