"Another Horror - While our paper was on press last week, we were called to the side of an old resident of this county, Martin Gore, whose life was ebbing away from the effect of a cruel kick from a horse. - Mr. Gore was engaged in his business, stock breeding, at Barton's stable, at the time and received his death blow by a kick from one of the team belonging to Frank Guernsey. He was standing with his back to the animal and never knew what gave him his death. The hoof of the animal struck him just at the base of the brain and broke in the skull. By the use of restoratives life came back to the apparently lifeless form, but no consciousness, and soon the life went out from the aged tenement, and the good old man was in the possession of that rest which was his heritage by reason of the sixty years of upright life that he had lived. His family was summoned and took the body home, from whence his funeral occurred on the following day. He was buried in the Murphy graveyard near where he had lived
