June 4, 1885 died – Joshua Rau, and a citizen of North Lima, came to his death last Monday in the following manner. A rope had been attached to the limb of an apple tree which someone was sawing off. Mr. R. was pulling on the rope to keep the limb from falling on a pump underneath. When the limb fell it struck the old man on top of the head, producing an injury that causes death within a few minutes. The deceased was the father of Samuel Rau, residing a few miles from this place. His age was about 76 years.
