Freak Accident

 R. M. Wilkinson, of Toano, was killed some time Saturday night near Walkers Station, in New Kent county. He was a sewing machine agent and was driving from Providence Forge, when, it is presumed, his horse ran away, overturning the wagon. A sewing machine fell on him, breaking his back.
