David Blackey, a well known mining man of Garnet, Mont.
, has been killed as the result of a somewhat singular accident. He had just purchased a horse and was riding it for the first time when a dog dashed into the roadway and snapped at the animal's heels, causing it to become unmanageable. Blackey was thrown violently to the ground and died soon afterward.
