We learn from the Holt county papers that Marion Williams, a wood chopper twenty-eight years old, met with a horrible death three or four miles south of Oregon in that county last week. It seems that he went to the timber to chop down a tree and was caught by it, and pinned against some cord-wood. He extricated himself after almost super-human efforts and the loss of nearly all of his clothing and a great part of his skin, and with a broken thigh he crawled sixty yards to the side of a small wood road, where his dead body was found the next morning. It is thought that the accident happened between three and four o'clock on Monday afternoon and that he died shortly before he was found at about ten o'clock on Tuesday morning. The suffering that he must have endured during the long cold evening and night can neither be described or imagined. A man of the same name and same description, used to live near Linden in this county, and it is undoubtedly the same one who so terribly died in Holt county last week.
