On Thursday of last week it was the sad fate of Charles Sherman, a former well known Langdon resident, to be brutally trampled and gored to death by a bull on his farm near Bridgeford, Sask. From the meagre details which have reached Langdon friends in a let ter received during the week, it must have been while tending his stock after nightfall that the terrible tragedy was enacted. It was about half past nine o'clock, when his wife, formerly Miss Mollie Comstock, of this city, becoming anxious at his remaining away longer than usual went in search of her husband only to find him lying unconscious al most buried in the straw and litter of the barn yard where he had been at tacked by the bull, a young Jersey that he had bred and raised himself. After being taken to the house he lived less than an hour and never really regained consciousness, although Mrs. Sherman believes that her husband knew and re cognized her towards the last. There were over a hundred wounds and bruises on his body where the angry bull had trampled and gored its defenceless vic tim his skull was crushed, an eye gonu aud the back broken. The funeral held Saturday was attended by a large con oourse of sympathizing friends and neighbors for miles around.
