Peculiar Accident Results Fatally to an Allegany Man.
ANGELICA, May 21. — Joseph ARNER of Belmont, the county seat of Allegany, met with an accident at Johnsonburg, Pa., which cost him his life. A chisel which he had in his hand was caught in the turning shaft while his attention was called to another part of the machinery. The chisel was knocked from his hand, striking him in the chest, near the neck, with so much force as to cut the main artery and in two minutes he was dead from the loss of blood. The body was brought to Belmont and buried.

E. M. OLNEY of Rushford was chasing his cows of the yard when he ran into a clothes line, which threw his back onto the ground in such a forcible manner as to break his collar bone.

Laura GLEASON, a pupil of the school at Marshall, was playing with the other scholars and in some manner got hit on the head with a stick of wood, which rendered her unconscious for a time.

Late Allegany county deaths are as follows: Mrs. Margaret CORCORAN of Cuba, aged 46 years; Jane STANLEY of Allen, died at Craig Colony for Epileptics; Rollin HOUGHTON of Houghton, died at Chillicothe, Ill,; Ransom TUTTLE of Cuba, aged 74 years died at Anaconda, Mont.; Charles H.

The fire which so seriously damaged the house of D.O. TRIMMER on Saturday morning, is still much of a mystery as regards origin. No fire had been in the building that day, except a gas fire in the kitchen, and that was not then burning. Mrs. TRIMMER and daughters were below stairs, and one had cause to go above and open the garret door, when flames burst out. The slate roof and the intricate construction of the garret made it a most obstinate fire to handle, and before it could be controlled the entire upper story was gutted. Mr. TRIMMER was not in town. The house was insured for $2,000, and the contents for $1,000.

Sarah E. COREY died at her home in Larzelere's Hollow Friday from heart disease, aged 72 years.
