      FORFAR - FATAL ACCIDENT AND CHARGE OF CULPABLE HOMICIDE. - Yesterday William Millar, carter, Steeple of Restenneth, near Forfar, was judicially examined before Sheriff Robertson, and committed to prison,pending further inquiry, on a charge of culpable homicide in connection with the death of John Masterton, weaver, Southmuir,Kirriemuir. It seems that on Friday evening Masterton was purchasing fish from a cart in Southmuir, when another cart, driven by the accused, came up and crushed him between the wheels of both carts.Masterton, on being relieved, fell to the ground in a state of unconsciousness, having had several of his ribs very severely crushed,and he was also injured otherwise. As the result of the injuries inflicted, he died on Saturday night. Millar, it is stated, was at the time the accident happened under the influence of liquor. The deceased was upwards of sixty years of age.
