SAD ACCIDENT -- At Cyotaville, in this county, on Tuesday last, says the Mountain Democrat, an interesting little boy of 4 years, the son of Mr. J.M. EKEO, met with a painful death. The little fellow, with other children, ran out to meet a wagon loaded with brick, and asked permission to ride upon it. The driver stopped his team and seated the children upon the wagon, and had barely started his team again when the little fellow fell between the wheels, and was almost instantly killed.
