SMITH, A.D. - A.D. Smith, a farmer living near the John Rakes farm, three and a half miles northwest of Bentonville, was killed instantly by a tree falling on him while he was at work in the timber. The accident occurred about three p.m. Wednesday. While Mr. Smith was trimming a sapling, a large dead snag nearby which had been fired the day before, began to sway and his son, who was working near him, warned his father to look out that it was going to fall. Mr. Smith replied that there was no danger. As the burned tree started to fall Smith stepped to one side but not in time to avoid the falling tree. Had he remained where he was at work he would have been unharmed. Mr. Smith was about 63 years of age and a widower, his seventeen year old daughter, Nola, keeping house for him. Besides the daughter he is survived by his son, Hobart, who is fifteen years old, Mrs. C.D. Plumlee, a daughter living near, and three sons and a daughter living in other states.
