Or sorrow woke the tear,

Rise to thy home of rest,

In your celestial sphere.

SAD ACCIDENT – Last Thursday a little son of J. M. Stowell, Esq., of Mt. Carroll and grandson of Maj. McCully, or our own town, came near losing his life by being hooked by and enraged cow and thrown under a manger, where it is supposed he was struck on the side of the head by the horse. Immediate relief was afforded, and about two inches square of the skull removed. At latest accounts it was thought he would recover.

A Sad Affliction

Mr. Tooke and lady of this city, with their only daughter and a little son about three years and eight months old, while on a visit to Courtland (sic) of this State, the past week, met with one of the most heart-rending accidents we have ever been called upon to record. Within the past eight months, Mr. Tooke has buried three children and now has but one living to comfort himself and wife in their affliction. Within two years he has lost four and all of them interesting and promising children.

Of the sad accident which resulted in the death of the last, a pleasant bright boy we are furnished with the following authentic account.

Prof. Tooke, having recently been appointed Dep. G. W. C. Templar of the state, was at Cortland by invitation to lecture and organize a Temple, and while stopping at the house of a friend and about to start for Chicago to attend a convention to be held there this week, the daughter in arranging her satchel observing a little toy pistol which was sent by a friend to her little brother, and handed it to him. In his ecstasy of delight he ran to show it to the lady of the house, who immediately stepped tyo the till of the bureau and took out a beautiful little silver mounted four barrel pistol, to show the child and compare with his.

Mrs. Tooke observing it cautioned her to be careful with it, as she was afraid it was loaded. To convince her that it was not, she held it up and snapped it, failing to go off. She immediately cocked it again, and on being requested to put it away, in the act of readjusting the hammer without reference to the direction in which it was pointed lodged the fatal bullet in the left breast of the dear little boy, who placing his hand suddenly upon the wound exclaimed. “Ma that hurts me.” The child soon began to fail and though conscious to the last, and anxious to comfort his heartstricken and unhappy mother, he exclaimed “Ma I am going to Freddie and Emma that is all.” – a little brother and sister who died last summer.

Little Eugenie lingered but a few hours and breathed his last.

DIED.

GAGE, -- In Dement Nov. 4th Chester Gage, aged 25 years, son of Roswell Gage

CULVER.—At Lincoln, Nebraska Nov. 2nd 1968. Mrs. Catherine Culver, aged 31 years; daughter of John and Lydia Lawrence of Canada Settlement in this Co.

Friends will recollect the affliction of the family a year ago, in the loss of another daughter, Mrs. Peck, at the same place. A little over a year a year ago these sisters moved to their new western homes. Mrs. Culver, like her sister, exemplified in death as in life, the power of the Christian’s faith and hope. To those around her dying bed she said, “Meet me in Heaven.” To a remark, she observed in reply, “If these are my last days, they are my best days, and brightest;” and a few moments before death “Jesus is always precious.” Thus do the loved pass on before.
