Sad Accident.

Mr Magruder Turner, a son-in-law of Mr. L. Boyd, near Cotton Gin, was caught by the arm in a gin last week, and the limb was so badly mutilated it had to be amputated at the shoulder. Mr. Turner never recovered from the shock of the injury, and died about about twelve hours after it occurred. The accident happened at a gin near Angus, in Navarro county. The deceased was buried at Cotton Gin last Saturday
