      DU MONTIER'S DEATH.
      The Proprietor of the Boston Tea and Coffee Store
      Thrown From His Own Wagon, and Fractures His Skull on Vitrified Brick Pavement.

      It was a peculiar accident which brought about the death of Joseph E. Du Montier yesterday Morning. He was the owner of the Boston Tea and Coffee Store, and yesterday morning, at nearly 10 o'clock, he made up his packages and set about to deliver them by wagon. He drove down Claiborne Avenue, and when between Frenchmaen and Elysian Fields Streets, reached up with the lines, preparatory to hooking them to the wagon cover. The lines, instead of catching in the hook, slipped and, falling across the horse's back, caused the animal to pitch forward. Mr. Du Montier reached down to pick up the lines, and this causing the animal to swerve, Mr. Du Montier fell forward on his head striking the vitrified brick pavement. The horse dashing off at this moment, the wheels passed over the body of the prostrate man lenghwise, and he sustained injuries that were fatal.

      Several citizens who witnessed the accident, happening as it did at 9:45 o'clock when the streets were crowded, rushed to the scene, picked the young man up, for he was unconscious, and carried him to his home, No. 1620 St. Bernard Avenue. Drs. Richard, Gabert and Archinard were summoned, but their services were of no avail, for in striking the pavement the unfortunate man had fractured his skull, became unconscious and never revived for a moment, dying at 12:45 o'clock. The intellignece of the young man's death got in circulation immediately, so that last night the family residence was swarmed with sympathetic friends.

      The deceased was the son of Emile T. Du Montier, one of the old landmarks of the Third District. He was 44 years of age, unmarried and strictly a home man. As the owner of the coffee and tea store he was building up a fine business and making it all it should be, looking even after the delivery of big sales. The wagon he was driving was a light one, and probablyw ould not have injured him sufficiently to cause death if he had not struck his head on the pavement.

      Deceased lived with his father, brother and two sisters in St. Bernard Avenue, and the body will be buried from there this afternoon at 4:30 o'clock, the intermnet to take place in St. Louis Cemetery, on Esplanade Street near Bayou St. John.
