NEWS was received here last week of the death of Fred., eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. John GILBERT, who formerly resided in Cedar township but are now near Ft. Thomas, Arizona. Deceased was sixteen years of age. He was thrown from his horse while out on the range fifty miles from home and died the following day. His parents did not know of his injury until he was dead. Many friends here will sympathize with the family in its trouble.
