Horrible Death of a Miller.

His Clothing Caught in Machinery and All of His Bones Broken.

Mr. W. W. Campbell, miller at Kingston flouring mills, met a horrible death Friday. While passing around a belt which turned the rocks his clothes were caught and carried him round and round, breaking both legs and crushing into a pulp his arms and breaking his skull. He lived till 1 o’clock at night, when death relieved him of his sufferings. He was conscious when picked up after his daughter Nannie shut down the mill, and said that until she stopped the machinery he knew he revolved a thousand times. Mr. Campbell was a hard working, honest man and leaves a large family.
