Killed in the Mines.

John Leake, a negro boy about nineteen years of age, was killed at the Dobbins manganese mines last Friday morning by a falling bank.  It seems that he was at work under a slight embankment when several huge lumps fell upon him, breaking his back, from which he died a few minutes afterwards.  The company is in no wise responsible for the accident, as the superintendent had warned him not to go near or work under this particular place.
