Reaching the woods, they separated, and in the course of the day, one of them spied a squirrel and fired at it. he killed the animal, but, sad to relate, the bullet which sped from his rifle also sought lodgment in the heart of his brother, inflicting a would which proved fatal in a couple of hours.

Probably Fatal Accident

On Saturday evening last at about 5 o'clock, Mr. John Overmire, foreman of the bricklayers on the Normal School at this place, met with a terrible accident. Mr. Overmire at the time the accident occured, was on the elevator used for carrying brick to the upper stories of the right wing. When about twenty-eight feet from the ground floor, the elevator gave away, and overmire was hurled to the floor beneath, alighting upon his head and shoulders. He was conveyed to his house, and Dr. St.Clair was called in to examine into the injuries sustained. It was found that the right lung had been ruptured, and tow or three ribs fractured and completely disconnected from the spine. At this writing (Monday) Mr. Overmire's recovery is deemed doubtful.
Mr. Gregg, one of the contractors of the building, says the elevator was entirely safe, but at the point from where it fell, had become locked, and the horse continuing to move forward, broke the pully overhead, thus causing the disaster.
Mr. Overmire is about sixty years of age, and is a man of great physical ability, and, it is not unlikely, may recover from his terrible injuries.


Another Whiskey Victim

Coroner McCallin held an inquest last evening on the body of Francis Agnew, says the Pittsburgh Gazette, aged forty years, who was found dead in a house on Washington street, belong to Mr. Anderson, opposite the elevator. Deceased, who peddled tea for a Mr. Mooney, was of very intemperate habits. On Sunday night he retired on the lounge, where he usually slept, and yesterday morning he was discovered lying along aside of it, apparently asleep. The man who saw him walked out on tiptoe, so deceased should not be awakened from his slumber, not knowing that he was sleeping his lasst, long sleep. In the afternoon he returned about 3 o'clock, when he discovered the body lying in the same position and found that the man was dead. Reports had spread that the man had been killed by breaking his neck on the bucket, upon which he fell, but Dr. Foster, who made an examination of the body, stated that the man died of intemperance. The ruling passion was strong in death in this case, for in the hands of the deceased was a bottle of whisky partially drained of its contents. he leaves a wife and family in Ireland. The remains will be buried by the county.
