FATAL ACCIDENT- Edwin E. Brown, son of the late Judge Jeremiah Brown, of Fulton township, Lancaster County, a young man of much promise, was almost instantly killed on Monday while working at a threshing machine in the barn. The machine was driven by an endless chain tow horse power, and it appears that Mr. Brown applied the brake to the driving wheel for the purpose of stopping the machine, when the wheel, being stopped too suddenly, bursted, the fragments flying in every direction. One of the pieces struck Mr. Brown on the breast, and another on the forehead, killing him almost instantly. The decease was between twenty-five and thirty years of age, unmarried, and enjoyed a large circle of friends and acquaintances, who sadly regret his loss.
