A sad accident happened in our vicinity the other day. H. D. Hazel went to thresh over at Mr. Eggen’s and while climbing on a stack it was first thought he slipped and struck against the seperator and fracturing the spinal cord, but is now thought it was a paralytic stroke, as he did not try to help himself. We extend our sincerest sympathy to the friends and relations in their sad bereavement.
