KILLED BY FALLING TREE.

TAREE, Saturday.

Frank Towers, a bullockdriver, who resided at Coopernook, was killed while felling timber in the bush. Finding that a large tree which he was cutting would not fall in the proper direction, Towers walked a few yards to remove his bullock team to place it in safety, when a gust of wind came and blew the tree down. Death was instantaneous. Deceased was married, and leaves a family.
