PAT GORMAN, a prominent farmer residing six miles east of Lineville, was found lying in his barn yard Thursday evening, March l5th, in an unconscious condition. There were two gashes down the back of his head and his skull was fractured. His l3-year-old daughter had been helping him with the work at the barn and had gone to the house for a few minutes. Upon her return, she found her father lying in a pool of blood. She summoned assistance and the injured man was carried to the house. Physicians were called, but he died the following day without regaining consciousness. It is supposed that he was kicked by one of the horses standing in the barn lot. He was quite an old man and his eyes were defective, which probably prevented his seeing the danger until too late. He leaves a wife and two children.
