part of the state, where Gerald
was employed by tin» White Pine

no witness to the accident, but
it is supposed that he fell into

and one leg being severed. He
lived only a few minutes after
the accident.

after the loss of another son bv

ago. The family has the sincere
sympathy of their many friends
in this locality.
