Killed By Tree
The Sad Death Of Hugh McNab
Wife Was A Witness
The Distressing Accident Near Peck Yesterday - The Deceased Was Well Known
Peck, Dec. 21. (Special to the Tribune)
Hugh McNab, a well known farmer, met death in the most distressing manner this afternoon a few miles from Peck.
Mr. McNab was engaged in felling a tree when a limb struck him on the neck, the blow almost severing the head from the body. Mrs. McNab was nearby watching her husband while he was at work and became a witness to the sad accident. She immediately mounted a horse and rode to neighbors who hurried to the scene.
The death of the young man had undoubtedly been instantaneous, considering the character of the injury he received.
The deceased was well known and very popular in this section. Mrs. McNab is the daughter of A. J. Dryden, a prominent resident of this place.
