Sad and Fatal Accident.
One of W. A. Elliott's little boys, Charlie aged 7 years, was killed last Monday night. The little fellow was leading one of the horses out to water, when the horse lay down to roll and on getting up jumped, it is supposed in a playful way, knocking Charlie down and stepping on his spine. His father saw him trying to get up and went to him and said to him, "Are you hurt?" He said, "I don't know." He was taken to the house and died in a short time.
