sawing wood with a machine on the property of the Dominion
Settlement Association Company on Wednesday, 18 Apr 1917, an
accident occurred which caused the death of one of our townsmen, Mr.
He was taking wood from a
pile of long poles which stood on end and placing them on the
machine when the remainder of the pile gave way, and in falling
caught him beneath it.
On being examined by Dr.
Boddy his injuries were considered so dangerous that he was sent to
the hospital at Hamilton, where he died Sunday morning last.
His remains were brought
here and the funeral held at the home of his mother on Tuesday at 2
He leaves a wife and mother,
two brothers and three sisters, who are in great grief at the loss
of one of their family, and they have the sympathy of their many
friends in this place.
