Fatal Accident.

LAZETTE, Nov. 22, 1878.

DIED. A very serious accident befell Robert Armstrong yesterday. He and his daughter started to Lazette in the wagon. Just after crossing what is known as Goose Creek, the team took fright at the noise made by persons gathering corn in a field close to the road. In making an effort to hold his horses, Mr. Armstrong broke one of the lines, when the horses ran, circling around toward a steep bank, over which they plunged. The fall was ten or fifteen feet. One horse was killed immediately, the girl was bruised some little, while Mr. Armstrong was seriously and fatally injured internally. Dr. Wilkins was sent for at once, and upon examining Mr. Armstrong he pronounced his recovery as extremely doubtful. Mr. Armstrong settled in Harvey township, six miles north of this place, is widely known and generally esteemed for his industry, his honesty, and his habits in behalf of law and order. He died Friday and was buried Sunday.
