The Shelby DemocratOn Monday afternoon about 6 o'clock, a fatal accident occurred at St. Paul, resulting in the instant death of Martin Donahue. He was engaged with several others in working for John Eck, who had the contract for building the piers of the I. C. & L. R.R. bridge. While they were raising a heavy stone, the derrick gave way, and knocked his brains out, killing him instantly.

Deceased was a native of Ireland, about fifty years old, and leaves a wife and four children, all of whom are grown. He was an industrious man, enjoyed the esteem of his acquaintances, and will be missed at the stone quarries of St. Paul, where he had worked for a number of years, and was looked upon as one of the best hands. This makes the fourth man killed in these quarries the last three years.
