Two little boys, the oldeet aged twelve years, the sons of a widow lady by the name of Thempson, went Into the wobd near the house to fell a tree on which they had been cutting before. The tree lodged and a large limb apen the falling tree was torn loose which was thrown back by the re bounding of the tree oa which the other had lodged with great force. This limb struck the larger of the boys on the head, crushing the skull sanl producing instant death. The older Iboy bad just before warned the younger to more back as there was danger. The yoanger boy moved back and got behind a asmall tree which was itruck by the limb and was all that saved the life of the younger boy. The I,raiins of the elder Iey were scatterede around where lie lay. A sad, ad accidenut. The flnet dinner we Ihave set down to ill nmany a day was given by Mr. ID. U. llarrisoni on New Year's day. Turkey, venison, nolsnslm and bear meats were all served in abundallce, besides all the othbe nice things tihat any one could desire. The socwial unatre of Mr. larrison brought a large number of guests around his table lieo partook heartily of the good thing a hich the beat of housewives had providel.
