' -Hhle accident occurred on the
nil road side track at Cannon ville,
hrre the Cannon and Odell siding
;:'v,f ths main line.
The victim of this horrible acci
; : w v7di a widow iady, Mrs. Lizzie
I:nds, 59 years of age, and who
lived with Rush Sherrill, just across
track from where the killing
'curred. The particulars are about
s follows :
Mrs. Bonds was returning to her
home from carrying dinner of Mr.
herrill, who works at the Cannon
r;i!I-- Her most direct route from
te mill home was out Mill siree
extension, which ends at the place
"ro phe met her death, thence
v:wn the track. Mrs. Bonds bad
r.-it been blessed with the best of
h tilth for several years and was
lightly deaf. She was wearing an
old -time sunbonnet and was facing
wind, and quite naturally car
rving her head with the face toward
;-.i:t. El Patterson's train was
tnrowicg in a car at the bleachery
i.d from neccessity detached the
three box cars from the engine,
which had by the time they reached
the bend in the track, gained con
querable speed. A brakeman, Jule
Hargrave, was on the car next to
the woman, but owing to the ob
struction to the view by the ware
house between the cars and the
victim, Jule did not see the woman
'jr.til within a few feet of her. He
hollered, but of no avail. He could
not stop the cars until the poor old
voman was mangled beneath the
Messrs. II J Dis and W A Russell
e:e standing in the door at the
b-eachery and saw the whole aiTiir,
These gentlemen told a Standard
reporter that the three cars were
oing down the track at a moderate
speed, and just a3 the woman stepped
eti to the track the cars were within
i few yards cf her. She was carry
ing several pieces of plank, which
ull on the outside of the track
l"vhi!e she was knocked flat between
Luc rails when the car struck her.
There were no brakes on the front
u:d uf the car, but on the rear
trucks the brakes caught the wo
man, striking her head first and
throwing her body under the wheels.
ITf-r head was mashed into crumbs,
while her body was terribly man
gied. Death was instantaneous.
This marks the fir3t fatality on
this Biding, and is greatly deplored.
The accident, under the circum
arises, was an unavoidable one.
Mra. Bonds was the mother of
Mr. Cicero Bonds, a well-todo
' 'r-?r, who lives at Poplar Tent.
i be remains of the dead woman
u taken charge of by relatives
at:u conveyed to the home of Mrs,
dipt. Patterson and his crew were
learn tiiut Robe:
was shot "i-a instantly killed by
Esquire Ed. Barber, ne:ir Cleveland,
Rowan county, Wednesday night.
The facfs connected .with the
case seem to be Hbout as follows:
Jones was a tenant of Mr. Barber's
and living on Mr. Barber's land.
The house in which he lived was
about .200 yards from Mr. Barber's
hsrse. A difference arose about
so-ne local affairs and Jones was at
Mr. Barber's at a corn shnckino
Feelings of warmth arose and Jone3
went off cursing Barber all the way
home and there became more vio
lent. Mr. Barber ordered him to
desist from his insults and with his
shoe gun m hand proceeded to
enforce the demand hen Jines be
came more tierce instead cf becom
ing quiet. Mr. Barber struck Jones
with the muzzle of nis gun when,
to his horror the gun fired, blowing
off the top of Jone'i Ld -d kill
ing him instantly. Mr. Barber
proceeded te Salisbury and employed
Lawyers Overman and Clement and
secreted himself till further devels
A coroner's jury rendered a ver
diet of accidental homocide.
Mr. Barber is highly esteemed in
his neighborhood and much regret
is felt for the unfortunate partici
pants in this calamity.

We are pleased with the Blford
The acrobatic performances are
amazing and display the possibih
ties of the human body when sub
jected to thorough training, and
they tend to heighten our concep
tions of man physically, in harmony
with man intellectually.
The contortions eh.ke us up in
onr ideas of man's construction and
we wonder that there are not differ,
ent anatomical classifications of the
human body that treat of one kind
of joints, tendons and muscles for
common people and another kind of
joint for such as Mr. Crawford.
"A little nonsense now and then
is relished by the best of men" and
the clown makes you laugh at him
and then laugh at yourself for do
i is: so.
But we have no terms in which
to speak our praises for Mr. Burr's
band. It is simply superb and we
are glad that Concord is being
treated to music of such high order.
We rarely have an opportunity to
listen to such flowing harmony t-.nd
such pleasing rhythm.
The show as a whole is modest
and chaste and needs no menagerie
to make it admissible for all who
are not religiously opposed to show?.
