DEA TH.
Mr. Thomai Cloud, of Warren coun
ty, was returning home from Stras
burg, in a two horse wagon, on Friday,
(Sept. 30th.) when one of the front
wheels came off, breaking the spindle,
and throwing him headforemost out
on the doubletrees. His feet got en
tangled in the trices, wich allowed his
head and a portion of his body to be
draged back under the broken axle,
I dislocating his neck, tearing off all his
clothes and mutilating him beyond
recognition. He was draged from the
old Pittman farm, (whore tho accident
occurred) to a gate at his barn, a dis
tance of throe fourths of a mile, where
his body was found by one of the
neighbors, still under the wagon.

and several barns and houses were
m re or less injured, All the fences
were blown away. While Ralph Dur
