A SAD OCCURRENCE

Mrs Rae, widow of Adam Rae, who was accidentally killed three months ago by a fall of earth, was this morning found dead at the bottom of a well at Green Island. An inquest was to be commenced at four o’clock this afternoon, and, pending the result of this inquiry, full details are not obtainable. But we understand that Mr Andrew Pollock went out of his house in a hurry about seven o’clock to see whether the gale had not damaged his chimney ; that while in the garden he noticed the lid of the well open, and on looking down he saw the body. Mrs Rue had resided in the district for about twenty-five years, and was a quiet old body about fifty-six years of age. She was of late mainly supported by a bachelor sou, who saw her alive and well at nine o’clock last night.
