McDONALD, Rich - }from The Fayetteville Review} While Rich McDonald, living in Cove Creek township, was grinding meal at his mill last Friday, he met instant death by the top stone striking him on the head, knocking the top of his head entirely off. Another piece of the stone severed his left arm from the body, throwing it fully sixty feet. Four other men, Messrs. Abshire, Jones, McCornish and King were badly hurt. The cause of the explosion is not known.

Inscription:Blessed are the dead which died in the Lord.
