Clinton, Feb. 19. - Mrs. M. Trollinger died from fright Monday near Leesville. Her son was cutting down a tree and the lady was sitting in a wagon watching him. The tree fell toward the wagon and the boy called to her to get out of the way. She seemed unable to move and the tree crashed down in the rear of the wagon. As it did so the woman fell back dead. Physicians who examined the body found no evidences of injury and gave the cause of death as paralysis of the heart from fright.
