The following item we clip from the Dubuque Times of Sunday last:
Strawberry Point, Jan 20 - A sad accident happened Thursday whereby Mr. H.O. Farrington, one of the first settlers in this part of the state lost his life. About thirty-five years ago he planted a tree near the corner of his house, which had grown meantime to considerable size. While he and his son were engaged in cutting it down it fell in such a way as to cause a large limb to his Mr. Farrington on the head causing his death in a few hours.
