Wednesday evening, August 31, about 8 o'clock, Frank S. Bowman, aged 14, son of Silas Bowman, who lives about two miles south west of Osterdock, was killed. The accident occured as follows: The boy accompanied by two of his brothers and another boy, started out for a horse-back ride. When about one fourth mile south of their home, the horse on which Frank was riding stumbled, throwing him over its head, falling upon him, and killing him instantly. His neck and jaw were broken and he was otherwise badly disfigured. He was buried Friday afternoon at Bethel cemetery. The school children of Dist. No. 5, Mallory twp. where he attended school assisted in the obsequies. We extend our sympanty to the parents in their sad bereavement.
