HORRIBLE DEATH OF A WOODSMAN
A terrible accident is reported from Carroll county, Ark., in the northern part of the state. Thomas Fultz, a laborer, had been engaged for some weeks past in cutting sawlogs in the mountains. He erected a temporary camp under the trees, and remained almost constantly in the woods, returning at intervals to see his family. A night or two ago a violent storm of wind swept through the mountains, destroying vast tracts of timber. A large tree was blown across the rude hut occupied by Fultz, who had retired and was sound asleep, leaving the campfire still burning. A limb of the tree fell on the sleeping man, pinning him to the earth, and wounding him fatally. He was conscious, but unable to move, and his cries of agony could not be heard, as he was in the midst of a lonely forest, miles away from human habitation. To add fresh horrors to the calamity, the tree by whose branches he was imprisoned took fire from the smouldering coals of his camp fire. Fanned by the wind the flames spread rapidly, quickly consuming the main body of the tree and spreading to the branches. Fultz, held as by a vice, could do nothing, and the fire soon reached him. When discovered by his friends he was dead, both legs being burnt off and a large hole burned in his side. [Jackson Citizen, Nov 8, 1881]

We do not know a citizen who could not as least have been as well spared. He was the leading merchant, member of the school board, and for the past 25 years has been identified with the growth and welfare of his city and community. A public meeting was called by the mayor of Lewiston when learning of his death by telegraph, and resolutions befitting the demise of this noble man were passed. The funeral was largely attended, and Mr. Harris was generally mourned by all its citizens." Both Geo. and Miss Lucy Harris attended the obsequies.

Died At Eureka Springs, Ark., Friday July 15, 1881, David McCranie, a citizen of Ouachita parish; born in South Carolina, February 3, 1809. Sorrow for the death of this aged man is becoming the writer of this, and its most appropriate expression would be a quiet submission to the natural law which terminated his long and industrious life. It was no part of his nature to appear and be more than a quiet, good citizen, and he was in no respect desirous of posthumous praise. His exit from the walks of life, like his course living, was in perfect keeping with this trait of character, so that a peaceful life, though lot unmarked with afflictions and hardships, found happily a close, submissive and resigned. This event had not been, for some years, unexpected; but was looked to, at each alarm, with resignation and without murmur. He was strong and brave in all these trying emergencies. His visit to Eureka Springs, was not undertaken so much to prolong life - its early close being fully anticipated - as to be rid of bodily pain. The long and tedious journey, after but a recent illness, was too fatiguing for one so far advanced in years. So the writer feared, but the force of will and purpose which marked Uncle Dave's acts, carried him forward. The result was physical prostration, and death. His remains were brought to this city and interred in the Monroe Cemetery. These few sentences will supply those who knew David McCranie for many years, with such information as they will be most likely to seek concerning his death. It remains to be said, in a personal view, that he was the uncle of the writer, and the writer's brother, S. M. McCranie, and that their father and mother died while the former was a little boy and the latter an infant. David McCranie inherited his brother's business and the care of his two children, he was careful to educate these children, and equally careful to teach them to act like men. Whatever they have failed to do in following this council is due to no lack of discipline or care on the part of their deceased Uncle. The task, for one who had no children himself and was a bachelor until his death, was not, perhaps, one without its trials, but the writer is not doubtful as to the satisfaction his dead Uncle's efforts afforded him.
