His Own Manufacture


The lifeless, frozen body of James Harrington, a farm laborer, employed on the Alex Moug, Sr., farm, about twelve miles from Buffalo, was found by the roadside between Ayr and Buffalo, about 5 o'clock Thursday morning. The remains were brought to Buffalo where an inquest held by Coroner Savage last night, revealed the fact that the deceased had come to his death by freezing, the result of an accident.

On Wednesday morning Harrington and Tony Farrell, both employed at the Moug farm, started for Buffalo with stock which was to be marketed. Each man drove a team attached to a common bob sled. Harrington had two steers and Farrell had a load of pigs. The stock was sold to Baker in Buffalo and after securing dinner and a goodly quanity {sp} of booze, the men started for home about 4:30 Wednesday afternoon. At 9 o'clock that night they reached the house of Alex Moug Jr., where they stopped and secured a cup of coffee and then proceeded.
