The Camden Home Ruler announces the death of little Leslie Cook, the son of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Cook, who was bitten last week by a poisonous snake. The child was struck on the instep, and though restoratives were given him within fifteen minutes after he received the wound, and whisky was administered, it was of no avail.
The Pine Apple Enterprise says Captain Cook, of Allenton, was the victim of a probable fatal accident yesterday. He went into a room in the gin-house through which the shafting runs near the floor and tripped over one of the shafts and fell. His leg was caught by the shaft and was drawn up to the thigh, from which the flesh was stripped. Captain Cook is a very old man, and it is thought he will hardly be able to rally from the shock.
