p.3 Fatal Accident - A sailor was unfortunately killed by falling from the rigging of the Schooner Eleonora last Friday. He and a comrade were amusing themselves with running about the vessel and the rigging, and this man slipped when half way up the mast, and pitching on his head on the ice his skull was badly fractured. He was taken to the hospital, and every attention paid to him, but he died yesterday morning. He was a stranger in this place, and we have not been able to learn his name.
