Heartrending accident.

--The Paulding (Ala.) Clarion gives an account of a most heartrending accident which took place in Perry county. Three children, aged two, five and seven, in the absence of their mother, found a vial of strychnine, and pouring water into it, each one drank of its contents. When the mother returned she found one already dead, and the other two speechless. They all died within a few minutes of each other, and were buried in the same coffin.
