BAD ACCIDENTt John Walt, Jr., of Llvermore, in Scuffling With a Comrade on a Hay Stack, Falls and Is Mortally Injured From the Livcrmore Gazette, A very sad accident happened on Joe Fahrmann's farm north of town last Tuesday evening. The threshers wore at work there, and young John Watte, son of oar Presbyterian minister, was assisting. During an interval in the work ho indulged in n friendly souffle with one of his companions on the top of a stack, with the result that both got too near the edge and slid off. His companion ran on around the staok, attending to other matters not knowing that anything serious had ocoured. But Waito, in his fall, dropped onto a pitchfork which was standing upright in the ground, the handle entering the body at least six inches. He was held in this horrible manner for some few seconds, faintly trying to give an alarm that would be heard, and finally pushed himself away from the stack, bending the fork tines in the earth by his weight is he was carried to tho ground upon the handle. His calls were heard and his fellow workers came to his assistance, with considerable effort withdrawing the fork handle from his body. He was conscious, but in great pain. Ho bore it heroically, however, while he was placed on blankets in a wagon and the team driven very slowly, tp avoid jolting, to his home, many stops having to be made when tho pain became unbearable. Dr. Malin was summoned, and the sufferer was soon made much easier although the Dr. entertained grave .hopes of his recovery from the first. He passed a fairly comfortable night, and the next day Dr. Welch of Humboldt was summoned for consultation, and his opinion oonsided with that of Dr. Malm, that there was very small hope, and the family were told accordingly. On Tuesday last he breathed his last. Paralysis was the direct cause of his death. Tho remains wore iute.-red Pri day of last week. H. 0. Smith Is in Llvermore. •J: 1 H.

Selina Wright, who left here the 27th of last month for Independence, is getting along nicely. Dr. Hill, superintendent of the hospital, writes that Selina >is holding his own and can take plenty of liquid food but that his mental condition does not improve. An examination leads to the belief that his mind is permanently impaired and that It willbe necessary for him to stay in the hospital for the rest of his life. He may be able to write letters home at times. He is pleasant and seems to be contented with his new surroundings. Smoke the Quail. LECTURES.
