died at his residence in Big River township on the 1st of June, aged
69. He leaves a widow and eight children. Mr. HUNT was a natural
mechanic -- his genius for manufacturing articles of wood or metal,
often attracted attention.
J.T. McMULLIN, Sr., our paternal relative met with a painful accident
last week. He was riding along when a dizziness or fainting spell came
over him and he fell, pulling the horse over onto him. One arm,
shoulder and side were badly bruised, and one ankle badly sprained, but
he managed to crawl to a house, where he got assistance.
Mr. STEERMAN, near House's Springs, was run over the other day by a
reaper, and had one leg broken in two places and his hand badly mashed.

Since the above was in type we hear that Mr. STEERMAN is dead, he having
only survived his injuries a day or two.
De Soto will probably pass 1880 without John SMITH's boy, which arrived
one day too late.

roadmaster of the Cairo division, had his little son die at Charleston.
It was brought here for burial.
