Judd, aged about 65, fell from the dock In the rear of the 'Uncle Tom's" restaurant Friday forenoon and broke his neck, death following immediately. He had gone from the restaurant to clean some fish, when he stepped on a rotten rlank which broke and he fell to the ground beneath, a distance of about twenty feet. While this death was accidental, and on the morning following the triple tragedy of the murder of Mrs. Stout and Mrs. Todd and the suicide -of the murderer, Wm.

John Foster, and May or Morton pronounced an eulogy over his grave. COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES.
