Accidental death in Old Deer

On Saturday the 13th current, Mr Gilbert Beedie, at Lintmill of Quartalehouse, parish of Old Deer, a man nearly 70 years of age, while crossing the Mill-lead, on a plank, unfortunately fell in, and was carried down the stream a considerable way, when he was observed by some people passing at the time, who instantly went to his assistance.  Medical means were immediately used, but we are sorry to say without effect, the vital spark being extinct.
