Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis. Headlight: A sad accident happened in Mr. Buker’s camp Tuesday evening, which resulted in the death of Henry Klocke, a young man who was working for him. They were about to quit work for the day, and were felling a tree, which in falling struck another dry tree. This came directly towards the men as near as we can learn, striking Mr. Klocke, killing him instantly. He was a brother of Mrs. Phillip Vollrath, living west of here, and resided with his parents near Dorchester, and was the only child they had left to take care of them, they being quite aged. His head and one leg were badly crushed. He was taken to his home for burial.
