A strange sad accident occurred at the residence of Stephen Hupp, Grundy County, last Monday. Mr. Hupp was lathing overhead, when the head of the hatchet he was driving flew off from the handle, and struck his child, 14 months old, on top of the head, cutting a frightful gash right through the brain, from which it was feared he could not recover. The blood spurted all over the room and presented a sickening sight. The prospect is now that it may possibly recover.
