Special to The News-Star.

JONESBORO, Aug. 6. - [S. P. Harville], 40, a timber cutter employed by the Southern Advance Bag and Paper company of Hodge, was instantly killed late yesterday when his neck was broken by a falling tree in the woods near Friendship.

The accident occurred while several workmen were cutting pulpwood. Just as a group of timber men completed severing a large tree, [Harville] walked directly into its path. He apparently failed to hear cries of warning from those who had cut the tree.

When the tree crashed to the earth [Harville] was pinned underneath. After his fellow workmen had succeeded in extricated him from the branches an examination revealed that the timber man's neck was broken. He apparently had died immediately.
