Two Brothers Come to Blows and Fall Down Stairs in the Melee -
Both Badly Hurt -
Bruised Heads, Broken Bones and Internal Injuries.

One of those unpleasant episodes which a newsmonger is occasionally called upon to chronicle, happened just across the line in the town of Cuyler, on Tuesday of this week. A family quarrel, disgraceful enough in itself, was rendered very serious by an accident in which both participants were badly hurt. In an endeavor to give the facts in the case we have learned the following:

The late Calvin P. House left a wife and five children. He also left a will, duly drawn and executed by W.E. Burdick, Esq., December 17, 1885; but when the proper time came for commencing a settlement of the estate, the will could not be found. A little investigation showed that the instrument had been burned, it is said by the deceased's widow, at the instigation of one or two of the heirs who were dissatisfied with its provisions. It seems, however, that the late Mr. House was fearful that something of the kind would happen, for, after leaving 'Squire Burdick's office he returned and directed him to draw an exact copy of the will and send it by mail to his son, Alvin House, at Fabius. This was done; and this copy, in the absence of the original, was duly admitted to probate, the 5th inst., by Judge Knox of Cortland. C.H. Maxson, Esq., was appointed administrator, and George Lewis and Horace Benjamin appraisers. The will provided, first, that a monument costing $400 should be erected to the deceased, after which his wife should have the use of the real and personal property during his life, and use form the personal if necessary; at her death one-fifth was bequeathed absolutely to his son Elisha, one-fifth to Abbey A., wife of his son Alvin, and one-fifth to his daughter Diantha, wife of Lyman Rose. The use of one-fifth was given to Morris House during this life, and the same to Seneca House, both sons.

Tuesday forenoon, Messrs. Maxson, Lewis and Benjamin met at the late residence of Mr. House, deceased, to appraise the personal property. Alvin and Elisha House, Lyman Rose, Mrs. Morris House, Mrs. House senior, and Wm. Kinney Jr., who worked for the deceased, were also present. After dinner, Alvin and Elisha House were discussing some question concerning the liability of an administrator, in which they differed widely and became greatly excited; after shaking their fists under each other's noses a minute or two they clinched and surged across the room and against the cellar door, which unfortunately opened outward. Elisha's back went against this with such force that it burst open and both were precipitated head-long to the cellar bottom. Wm. Kinney, Jr., who came with Alvin House, ran down cellar and soon returned with him. He was a pitiable looking object, his face being covered with blood, one eye nearly closed and the left arm badly broken and dislocated at the wrist. After scrubbing off the blood, he and Kinney departed. Elisha failed to appear, and some one cried out that he had been killed; the gentlemen present hurried down stairs and found him breathing heavily and insensible. He was carried up stairs and soon restored to consciousness. The back of his head was seriously cut, one shoulder badly bruised, and he received internal injuries of a grave nature, the extent of which cannot yet be determined. He was conveyed home about three o'clock and Dr. Truman was called. At last accounts he was raising blood and suffering considerable pain. Alvin was around town yesterday, with one eye under an eclipse and one arm in a sling.

The appraisal at the homestead was finished that afternoon, and the chattels at the farm now occupied by J.R. Burdick were appraised yesterday morning.

Dr. A.D. Smith's Champion Truss.
To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to call attention of the public to my recently invented Truss. It makes one-fourth less pressure than any other truss, yet it always holds. It is the simplest in construction, the lightest weight and the most easily kept clean. Remember that it is spring all the way round the body and makes far less pressure than any other truss in the world. Call and see it or apply to your physician who will tell you all about it and order one for you. Price $6, $8 and $10. Never wears out.
New Woodstock, N.Y., Aug. 4, 1886.
