The Vicksburg Times, of May 15th, says: Information was brought to this city last evening of a horrible death that occured near Delta yesterday morning. A colored man, whose name we are unable to learn, started to drive a team loaded with provisions from his home near Delta to the interior of the parish. H had been gone about fifteen minutes when the team came dashing back to the house without the driver. Suspecting something wrong, the inmates ofthe house started to find what had become of the missing man. They walked nearly a mile, when they came upon a scene that almost took their senses away. The body of a man was lying in the road and a huge panther standing over it, eating one of the shoulders. The people ran back to their houses for their fire arms, and returned to kill the animal. When they got back the panther was still engaged in eating his victim. They fired, but did not succeed in killing it, and it ran away in the woods. They then went to the body and found that the panther had eaten part of the head, one shoulder and one foot off. The body was taken home and interred.”

Serious Runaway Accident

On Monday last, while on her way to town in a buggy, Mrs. Buterbaugh, of Green twp., met with a serious accident. The lady with a child, and in company with her sister were thrown from the buggy, the wheels of the vehicle passing over the person of Mrs. Buterbaugh. The other lady and the child were thrown to the ground. Dr. St. Clair was summond, and after careful examination pronounced the wounds of the injured lady ver serious, but not ncecessarily fatal. The babe and the other lady were bruised somewhat. The horse was check by Mr. Henry Wissinger, who was slightly injured by the effort.


Gibson – Shultz – On the 1st inst., at the residence of the bride’s parents, by Rev. B.S. Sloan, Mr. James D. Gibson to Miss Anna M. Shultz, all of Indiana county, Pa.


Hadden – On the 12th ult., Ira Clark, infant son of W.J. and Nancy Hadden, of Cherryhill twp, aged six months and twelve days.

Widdowson – Of consumption, May 23nd, 1874, at her father’s residence in Rayne township, Indiana county, Pa., Clara, daughter of Thomas and Jane Widdowson, aged 24 years, 3 months and 24 days.
Deceased left home for Nebraska, Nov. 25th, 1872, where she resided over a year and formed the acquaintance of a large number of friends, but neither kind friends, medical skill or pleasant surroundings could arrest the work of the destroyer, and she reluctantly bade adiu to all, and returned home, where she patiently lingered until released by death. She ever maintained a cheerful serenity, rarely lingered until released by death. She eever maintained a cheerful serenity, rarely witnessed, selecting her burial place, the hymns she wished sung, and the text from which her funeral sermon was to be preached. Her selection is found: 1 Thess 4:-14; Rev., 14:13, and then passed from our circle, one of its brightest members. One loved and esteemed by all who knew her. We cannot look upon her as dead. True, the lifeless form lies there, but the soul has gone to the fair climes of immortality, where it will live and grow eternally.
Her faith in Christ was unwavering. Her hopes of Heaven bright, and sure. No intervening doubts to cloud faith’s vision, and she serenely passed from earth to heaven, bidding all her friends an affectionate farewell. With Clara all is well,
Mourn not, fond parents, ne’r your daughter dear;
Banish your frief, and dry up every tear –
You soon may meet her on that blissful shore
Where friends unite to seperate no more.

Gailey – On the 1st Inst., at the residence of his son-in-law, Jos. W. Kenan, in Grant tp., Cornelius Gailey, aged 77 years.

Dickie – on the 8th inst., of diptheria, Annie Edith, youngest daughter of J.D. and Mattie J. Dicke, aged 1 year 1 month and 13 days.
Alas how changed that lovely flower,
Which bloomed and cheered my heart,
Fair fleeting comfort of an hour,
How soon we’re caled to part.

And shall my bleeding heart arraign
That God whose ways are love;
Or vainly cherish anxious pain
For her who rests above.
