W. R. Gordon, one of the oldest residents of Montgomery county, was fatally injured on his farm near Red Oak. While riding a roller the horse ran away, throwing Mr. Gordon off. A cement block, which had been used to weight the roller, hit Mr. Gordon on the head. An operation was performed at the Red Oak hospital, but without avail. Mr. Gordon died the next morning. A widow and three sons survive.
