ACCIDENTS AND FATALITIES.
Upon inquiring at the hospital we were informed that the man M’Millan, thrown from hia horse on Wednesday, is now out of danger, and in a fair way to recovery. A man named Eobert Kirkpatrick died rather suddenly at Officer's Hotel, Kelso, on Wednesday evening. It appears ho had been drinking rather heavily for some days previously, and during Wednesday evening he was seized with an apoplectic fit, from the results of which he died.
A man named Peter Kano was driving into town from Merton this morning when he met with a nasty accident. He was coming down Mount Cargill road with a dog cart when he saw another and a larger vehicle approaching. When the two drew close to one another he attempted to guide his horse across to the left side, but the road being covered with frost and very slippery the horse stumbled and slipped on its haunches as the vehicles collided. Kane was pitched out of his cart on to the road, and was picked up in a semi-unconscious state. He was conveyed to the hospital, whore ho was attended to by Dr Copeland, who found that he was severely cut about the face and head, while his back also was hurt. Under medical treatment, however, he soon came round, and hia present state gives no cause for uncasineES.
