Gored To Death.
A horrible accident occurred, Sunday night, on O.N. Shedd's place, northeast of the city. Mr. Jos. Barbarick, who lives on the place, went out to see his cow, about nine o'clock, and found a little calf in the manger. He then thought he would lengthen the rope with which the cow was tied, to make matters a little more comfortable for the animal. As he passed in front of her for this purpose, the cow, made savage by the presence of her calf, gored him with her horns with terrible effect. One horn passed into his body and through his heart, killing him instantly. When found he was lying in the manger, stone dead, in a pool of blood.
