Singular cause of death.

--Sheriff Murray, of Clark county, Wisconsin, went on a hunting excursion one day last week with two friends. They separated with the understanding that they should meet at night at a certain ‘"corner section point."’ Two of the three met at the place designated, but Sheriff Murray was missing. After a search they discovered the body of the Sheriff. He had gathered boughs and made a bed near a large tree, which caught fire and fell upon him, rushing him to death while asleep.
