Salí Accident al Saglnaw. Saginaw Citï was the stcne oí asail accident on tbc morniug of the lOth inst, when H.Hartlèy Bamwy ract hls death at the hands of his brotln-r Will E. Ramf ay, brok keept r of the well-known flrna of Wells, 9:oue & Do. The brotfeere Hvcd in tbé same house. Iietwien oue anti twp o'dock In the morninir Hartlej rushedintothe roem where his brother and wife wcre slepiug, and .-xclaiüied that burglars wcre in the house, and telliug hls brotW to ei hto revolver at once. Will tprang frora the boO, eceureii hls revolver, and started to leaTetho room. Just as he reached the door Hartley with the same degree of px citement with whieh he entertd the room, rushed bsck, and in the darkuess ran agajDSf the muzzel of Wil.'s revolver, diseharginK it. ]ie cxelaimed, "Will, you hive shot me." He ] was placed upon a ljed, and two physicians :.u:mHuned, who arrived in about 10 minutes. Too late, Uowever, to do augnt to relieve the wounded man, whoexpired in about 40 minutes aftcr tüe accident. ïhereare two thcorlcs as to the cause of "lXartleyEamsay's alarm. One, and the most probable, is that he Wta sutterlus: from a horribl" dream or uigútinans and was ie a soinnambuüslic state and was not fair'y awake nnti! lie retnrtcá from outdoors, and probiWj uot tbeii. The other theory would b? that these rcally wete burglars about tbc house, but thcrc. areno kmv.vn fact? to support tlils.
