Miles Campbell

   A man named Miles Campbell, who was employed at E. C. Diffin's camp on the Tittabawassee, was struck on the head by a falling tree last Wednesday afternoon and instantly killed. He had just eaten dinner and gone to work in apparently excellent spirits, when the first tree fallen produced the above fatal result.
   His body was brought to this place Wednesday night, a coffin procured, and taken to Sanford station on the F & P. M. R. R., from whence it was sent to Lagglin, Ont., where his friends reside. Campbell was a single man, 28 years of age, and had been in the state only about six weeks.
