Mr. STRONG ( -1806)

UNION.....JANUARY 6.
MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE!

   On Monday last, Mr. Hugh Cunningham, and Thomas Johnston, both of this county, and Mr. Strong, of Kentucky, were unfortunately drowned in the Youghiogeni river, near Connellsville. It appears that Mr. Cunningham was about to descend the river to Kentucky, with a cargo of Iron, and had received into his boat near three tons of iron at Col. Meason's Forge, and set out from thence accompanied by the above persons and two negro men, with an intention of landing his boat below the bridge, to receive the residue of his loading;-- that owing to some mismanagement of the boat, she was brought sideways against one of the fenders of the bridge, which caused the iron to roll to one side, and sprung a plank:--the water immediately poured into the boat: Upon seeing this, one of the negroes on board became alarmed and clung to one of the piers of the bridge, by which he saved himself. Mr. Cunningham, and the others on board, appeared to exert themselves to effect a landing, but the boat filling so fast with water, their exertions were unavailing;--she sunk about a quarter of mile below the bridge, near the middle of the river. The only person saved was the other negro man who swam ashore. The bodies of the deceased have not yet been found.

Agnes Henrietta STROSNIDER ( -1974)

AG Bus Crash
1 Child Is Dead,
29 Hurt

   PhotoPhoto  Shock, grief and some anger hang over the Lake Lynn and Nilan areas this morning in the wake of a tragic school bus accident which claimed the life of a Lake Lynn girl. The mishap occurred on a legislative route in Springhill Twp. in a rural area about two miles east of the Point Marion bridge yesterday afternoon about 4:30.

  Agnes Strosnider, 11, was pronounced dead at the scene by deputy coroner Richard Herod at 5:20 p.m. Herod said the child suffered a fractured skull and multiple head injuries and possibly a fractured neck. Herod aid the girl probably died on impact.

   Emergency vehicles rushed 29 other persons including the bus driver to the West Virginia University Hospital in Morgantown and Uniontown Hospital. The driver of the bus, Raymond Gerald Murray, 34, of Smithfield R. D. 3, was reported in fair condition in Uniontown Hospital last night. All but three of the other injured children were treated and released. The students were all from the Friendship Hill Elementary School. Uniontown State Police, who are investigating the accident told the Herald-Standard last night the bus was traveling east when the accident occurred. Police said the bus went down a slight grade but failed to negotiate a 90 degree right turn. The bus struck a B&O railroad overpass abutment head-on. Police said the bus attempted to stop but was unable to do so. It was snowing lightly at the time of the accident and the roadway was dry and ash-covered according to troopers at the scene. Troopers also said there will be further investigation of the bus and the vehicle will be “torn apart” probably by the State Police garage investigator to try to determine if there was mechanical difficulty in either the steering system or brake system or elsewhere. There will also be a coroner’s inquest into the mishap. Meanwhile, emergency vehicles rushed to the scene following the accident including State Police, Point Marion Vol. Fire Dept., both on and off duty Point Marion Borough Policemen and ambulances from Bobtown and Smithfield. The injured were helped out of the bus by the bus driver and a nearby resident who was identified as William Bair.

   Most of the injured were taken to the Blair residence while some children reportedly ran home. Those students admitted to the Morgantown hospital were identified as Viola McClain, 12, and Kim Strosnider, 6, both of Lake Lynn. Both were reported in fair condition last night. Meanwhile, six-year-old Jennie White Summerfield of Point Marion was reported in fair condition last night in Uniontown Hospital. Uniontown Hospital identified the students who were treated and realesed as Sheila Huffine; 10, Deanne Huffine; 9, Victoria Johnson, 7; Delores Stewart, 8; Donna Jo Crites, 7; Michael Sapp, 7; and John Sapp, Jr., 8, all of Lake Lynn and nine-year-old Sonya Pruitt of Point Marion. The Sapp boys are brothers and the Huffine children are sisters, according to the hospital. The Morgantown hospital gave the identities of the children treated there but could give no information on the ages, addresses or relationship of the youngsters. They were, Alcesta Wade, Charles Wade, Ricky Ruble, Samantha Strosnider, Annette Strosnider, Jerry Cobb, Joyce Stewart, James Stewart, William Stewart, Diane Diehl, Carol Strosnider, Robert McClain, Beverly Morland, and Norma Stewart. Carol and Samantha Strosnider are sisters of the victim. Meanwhile, the bus itself, owned by the Dundard and Springhill Bus Co. of Point Marion was totally demolished. State Police estimated the loss at $2,500. State Police and Point Marion officials tried to keep some order at the scene for the roadway to be clear for ambulances.

   Ambulances from Point Marion, McClellandtown and Uniontown were also called to the scene but the injured had already been transported to the hospitals by the other ambulances, according to some reports, and private vehicles. The force of the impact reportedly torn several seats loose and moved the bus forward about two feet off the frame. The victim was found on the left side of the bus about six feet from the front. No date has been set for the coroner’s inquest which will be held at the office of Fayette County Coroner Dr. W. Ralston McGee in Uniontown.

   Agnes Strosnider was a fifth grade student at the school and a member of the Nilan Apostolic Church. She is survived by her parents, Calvin and Betty Chipps Strosnider; four brothers, Jack, Calvin, Jr., Frank and Heath, all at home; and four sisters, Cathy, Samantha, Brenda, and Carol, all at home. Friends will be received at the Richard Herod Funeral Home in Point Marion after 7 o’clock tonight. Funeral arrangements were incomplete last night.

   Albert Gallatin Area School District Superintendent George Plava last night expressed shock and sympathy. “The administration and the school board are deeply shocked,” he said. “The death of Agnes and the injuries to the others have been felt and we express our sympathy to the children and the families.” Plava went on to say “safety is always a matter of deep concern.” He pointed out the district transports about 5,500 students a day and the 36 busses log over 2,900 miles a day. “It only takes one such accident to make us realize now fortunate we have been in the past years,” he said. Plava also said in all his 23 years as an administrator he couldn’t recall any other serious mishaps although he said there have been some minor ones. Plava added the Friendship Elementary School instructs children in kindergarten through sixth grade.

   Louis Rudolph, a Point Marion funeral director, owns the bus involved in the mishap and has operated the business but the past two years. Previous to that, according to Mr. Rudolph, the bus lines has serviced school districts in the area for about 30 years. Rudolph told the Herald-Standard last night the 1966 had had not previous record of trouble and had been inspected in January. Rudolph said the driver, Mr. Murray, has been with the company for about two years and is a regular driver and mechanic. Rudolph also said this was the first mishap the lines has had since he took over and the first one that he personally knew of. According to the Point Marion resident, the bus has a capacity of 66 passengers and as far as he knew, there were between 35 to 40 children in the vehicle at the time of the mishap. Rudolph was at the scene of the accident but said he didn’t know what went wrong and wouldn’t know until the bus was inspected by State Police this morning.

He leaves a distressed father and mother and sorrowing brothers, sisters and numerous friends who deeply feel their loss, but it is God that has borne him away and He can all our sorrows heal.  God takes the young as well as the old and therefore all should be prepared.  The deceased suffered for ten days with that awful painful disease, and at last God called him home where "the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest."
Samuel had never united himself with any Christian Church, but when disease arrested him, he fled in prayer and supplication to the Savior of the world for forgiveness and found peace in believing..  He called his associates, parents and friends around his bed, and warned them not to put off their return to God to a dying bed.  His last words were that he was going happy.

Henry W. STULL (1899-1943)

One Killed, Five Injured
in Blast At Shultz Mill
By United Press

SOMERSET, May 12—The owner of a saw mill which, admittedly, hasn’t been inspected for the past 10 years, was faced with an involuntary manslaughter charge today, a few hours after the mill’s boiler exploded, killing one employee and injuring five others, four seriously. Denver Shultz of Connellsville, Fayette county, owner of the mill, had the manslaughter information filed against him by Somerset County District Attorney Archibald M. Matthews.

 Matthews said the charge was based on “negligence” and added that Shultz admitted not having the mill inspected for the past decade.

 Killed instantly in the explosion earlier today was Henry Stull, 43, of Berlin, R. B. 5, who was thrown over 100 feet through the air by the force of the blast. The injured, all confined to the Somerset Community Hospital, are:
Willard Nicholson, 18, and Emerson Hoffman, 23, both of Berlin, R. D. 2; Lloyd Shultz, 43, and Ralph Johnson, 45, both of Somerset, R. D. 5, Harrison Hoffman, 54, father of one of the more seriously injured, was treated at the hospital and released.

 The accident occurred when the men were firing the boilers of the mill, preparatory to beginning the day’s work. Somerset County Coroner P. C. Dosch said he could not immediately determine the exact cause of the explosion but added he planned to hold an inquest.

Schultz to Face Grand Jury
In Sawmill Blast

Newpaper image is poor quality. Transcription may not be exact.

SOMERSET, July 25—Recommendation that Denver Schultz of Connellsville be held for grand jury investigation as owner of a Somerset county sawmill at which one worker was killed and five others injured in an explosion, May 12, was made Friday night at an inquest conducted by Coroner P. C. Dosch in the courthouse. Members of the jury ruled that Henry Stull, 43, of Indian Head, Fayette county, met his death instantly in the blast due to the “negligent and careless manner in which the sawmill was operated.”

 Five men injured in the explosion testified before the jury composed of James A. Casey, Richard C. Miller, E. J. Farling, Charles I Metzler, G. F. Gorman and H. W. Boyds. The men injured when the boiler exploded were Lloyd Schultz, brother of the mill owner, Emerson Hoffman, Berlin, R. D. 2; Willard Nicholson, Bakersville; Ralph Johnson, Berlin, R. D,. and Harrison Hoffman, father of Emerson.

 A charge of manslaughter was lodged against Schultz by District A. M. Matthews after the explosion and the sawmill operator furnished bond of $2,000 fixed by the court. The report of the coroner’s jury stated.

 “Henry Stull came to his death as a result of an explosion of a steam boiler, said boiler being part of the equipment of the sawmill owned by Denver Schultz. The explosion happened on May 12, 1943, and was due to negligence and careless manner in which said mill was operated. We therefore recommend that the owner of the said sawmill be held for grand jury investigation.”

 Following the explosion Coroner Dorch had ordered the arrest of Schultz as the result of “gross negligence.” He said that Schultz admitted that the saw mill and equipment had not been inspected for the past 10 years. The opinion was expressed during the inquest that cause of the explosion probably was due to the low water in the boiler which was used to generate steam to operate the mill.

 Schultz failed to register his mill with the Department of Labor and Industry and had carried no compensation on the employees, it was charged.

 Stull was killed instantly while standing on the gangplank when the blast occurred. His badly mangled body was found about 100 feet from the scene of the explosion. The other workers were showered by particles of steel and hot water, when the blast ripped the boiler apart and were hospitalized until recently.

 The owner of the mill has been operating saw mills in Somerset county for the past three years. The mill had been located on the old Harvey Wall farm.

Schultz Acquitted Of Manslaughter
In Boiler Explosion

SOMERSET, Sept. 20—A Somerset county jury Saturday acquitted Denver Schultz of Connellsville, a saw mill operator, of an involuntary manslaughter charge placed against him after a boiler at his mill blew up on May 12, killing one man and injuring six others. The jury returned its verdict after a deliberation of two hours. Schultz, 55, was ordered to pay the costs of prosecution and the hospital bills of the injured.

 The trial was marked by testimony of boiler experts. Alfred McCarthy, State boiler inspector, said the boiler at the mill, five miles from here, had not been registered with the State and had not been inspected. William Hower, a boiler maker, testified that the explosion was due to abnormal pressure.

 Henry Stull of Dunbar was killed in the explosion.

 Schultz took the stand to testify that he had purchased the boiler from his brother-in-law, Samuel Clark, of Fayette county in 1936 and he did not know boilers had to be inspected and had never done so. He professed to knowing nothing of boilers, saying his brother, Lloyd, who almost lost his life in the blast had complete charge of it while he only paid the bills for supplies and necessary repairs. Lloyd Schultz, walking feebly and with apparent effort due to the fractured pelvis and internal injuries he received, testified that on the morning of the explosion the water guage bobbed up and down in a rapid manner which it had not done previously.

 William Doppelheuer of Connellsville, boiler maker and master mechanic, said the blast was not due to the thinness of the metal around the under seam but due to abnormal pressure which caused it to explode from the inside.

   In Baltimore, May 23, 1862, Mr. David Ross Sturgis, of Dunkard, Greene Co., Pa., aged 32 years, 9 months and 25 days. He was one of fifteen of the same family connection, whose patriotism drew them, in this hour of their country's trial, from their loved homes to the hardships and dangers of the camp and the battle field, to suffer, and if need be, to die in support of the Constitution, law and order. He was a private in Company G, of the 85th Regiment of Penn's. Volunteers, and was in the service about 9 months, and parted from the army at Yorktown on account of a decline of health. Mr. S. was a gentleman of a fine personal appearance, of respectable talents, good social qualities, and decidedly Christian deportment, having been an esteemed member of the Baptist Church ten or twelve years. Mr. Sturgis left a companion and three children, parents, brothers and sisters, and an extensive circle of relatives and friends, by whom his loss will be deeply lamented. But his friends will not mourn as those without hope.

 Shall rise in full, immortal prime;

Harold Sturgis
Is Laid to Rest

   Simple but impressive was the service conducted yesterday afternoon at the funeral of Harold G. Sturgis, at his home, 313 Morgantown street, after which one of Uniontown's most prominent and most sincere workers for community betterment was laid to rest in the family plot in Oak Grove Cemetery. The Rev. Frank Hollinshead, pastor of the Great Bethel Baptist church, to which Mr. Sturgis belonged and in which he was such an active worker, was in charge of the funeral, assisted by Rev. Dr. J. S. Bromley, former pastor. Because of their long and intimate association with Mr. Strugis, both Rev. Hollinshead and Dr. Bromley in short talks spoke of the great service he had rendered his church and community. Dr. Bromley spoke of the immortality of the soul and the fact that death through life leads to eternity. "Abide With Me," "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," and “Crossing the Bar" were the hymns sun by the Bethel church quartet, composed of Mrs. J. Wayne Martin, Miss Dorothy Dilgarde, Curtis McBurney and Clarence Barclay, with Miss Garnet Jefferies at the piano. Attending the services in a body were Class Ten, of the Great Bethel Baptist Sunday school and the Rotary club. Mr. Sturgis was teacher of Class Ten and charter member and second president of the Rotary Club and its representative to the international convention in Edinburg, Scotland, in 1921. The active pallbearers were members of Class Ten, Lindsey Bierer, Isaac Bryte, Russell Umbel, Howard Ankeny, C. C. Catrow, Evans Crow, Charles A. Ellis and Russell S. Isiminger.

Coldren and E. W. Kennedy, were the honorary pallbearers. The commitment ritual at the grave was read by Rev. Hollinshead, with a brayer by Dr. Bromley.

Judge Henry J. STURGIS ( -1933)

JUDGE HENRY J. STURGIS

   Judge Henry J. Sturgis, one of the most prominent members of the Oklahoma bar and a brother of the late Attorney W. J. Sturgis of Uniontown, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George D. Wassam at Enid, Oklahoma, on January 3rd, according to word reaching Uniontown Friday. Mr. Sturgis arose two weeks ago after a month’s illness and resumed work at this office only to receive a setback. He was 71 years old.

   Born in Fayette county, and a resident here during his boyhood days, Mr. Sturgis migrated westward after graduating from the University of West Virginia Law School. He settled first in Kansas City, moved from there to Great Bend, where he married and then four years later with the opening by the government of the famous Cherokee strip, he made the “run” with thousands of others into Oklahoma.

   There he became prominent in legal and political circles for the remainder of his life. He was active in Republican circles just as head his family been in Fayette county.

   The Enid Daily Eagle, reporting his death, says:
   “Judge Sturgis held but one public office. He was county attorney in 1901 and 1902, winning the reputation by being one of the most vigorous prosecutors this county ever had. He was a candidate for district judge and was once nominated by his party for justice of the supreme court but was not elected either time. More than four years ago he was selected by his party as a delegate to the National Republican convention which nominated Herbert Hoover for the presidency.”

   Continuing a most interesting recital of Judge Sturgis' career, the Eagle declares:
   “News of his death brought expressions of sorrow and grief from all members of the bar in Enid. ‘He was a loyal friend and once your friend always your friend,’ one prominent member said. At the opening he was on the south line and rode a freight train into the Strip. When the train did not stop at Enid, the Rock Island at that time recognizing North Enid, he jumped off with a number of other noted pioneers and staked a town lot on East Main street. Taking an active part in legal work, Mr. Sturgis was personally acquainted with most of the older members of the Oklahoma state bar throughout the state. He was a life member of the Enid Elks lodge and had held most of the chairs and had been a member of the board of that lodge for years. Judge Sturgis, John F. Curran and Judge J. B. Cullison of the state supreme court all came to Enid the day of the opening and began the practice of law. Justice Cullison has been on the bench for years and Judge Curran has been out of active practice for the last few years. Possessing a deep knowledge of the law, a keen sense of humor and valuing friendship above all other possessions, Judge Sturgis was personally known and loved by all who knew him.

   “Although Judge Sturgis was reluctant to talk much about his early day experiences, he was perhaps one of the best informed men on the early day happenings of Enid in the city. Judge Sturgis helped draw up the first provision government for Enid, which he always referred to when talking to friends as the 'Kangaroo city government.' Up until over a few years ago when his health began to fall, Judge Sturgis took as active a part in the building and development of this section of Oklahoma as any man in the legal professional. His name was linked with innumerable important law suits, both civil and criminal, that have gone down in the records as important landmarks in the history of the Cherokee Strip. Fellow attorneys both loved and respected Judge Sturgis. They knew when they met him in legal battle across counsel table they encountered a worthy foe, but one who battled fairly and honestly.”

Mrs. Sturgis joined the Cumberland Presbyterian church on the 7th day of February last, and was peculiarly favored with rich manifestations of Divine love and favor. Her faith was very strong— her heart and soul trust in the Savior seemed complete. She not only rested in hope, but rejoiced in prospect of an “eternal weight of glory”—and a joyous immortality. She exhorted her friends in the way to heaven and sung even in her dying hour these two precious hymns—“I would not live always,” and “What’s this that steals, that steals upon my frame?” She died in the triumphs of Faith. May God take care of the three dear little children—Console, Bless and Comfort the mourning husband, widowed mother, and the many true friends of the deceased.    B.

Marshall SULLIVAN ( -1938)

WIFE OF THREE MONTHS SEES HUSBAND KILLED UNDER FALLING TREE
MARSHALL SULLIVAN

   Funeral arrangements were being planned today for Marshall Sullivan, 35 years old, of Mt. Independence, killed at noon on Tuesday when caught under a falling tree in front of his home. Sullivan, a bridegroom of three months, and Albert Miller of Dunbar were clearing dead trees and wild shrubbery around the newlywed’s home when the accident happened. The two men had used a saw and alternating in wielding an axe. The Bride was sitting on the front porch, watching the two fell a large dead tree a little over a hundred feet from the cottage. They chopped in such a manner to have the tree fall in the opposite direction from the home. As the tree started to sway in the breeze, Sullivan gave a shout and he and Miller ran to safety. But the tree toppled in another direction and a large limb dropped on Sullivan as his wife looked on. The man's neck had been broken as were his right leg and collar bone. Death was believed to have been instantaneous. Sullivan is survived by his wife, two step- children, his mother, Mrs. Flora Sullivan of Coolspring; three brothers, Carl of Pitcairn, Todd of Coolspring and Guy of Lemont and two sisters, Mrs. Ruth McMann of Lemont and Mrs. Esther Moracle of Filbert.

  SUTTON— April 10th, of Congestion of the Brain, Calvin P. Sutton, in the 16th year of his age. Within a comparatively short space of time, the family circle to which our young friend belonged has been sadly broken by the cold hand of death. First an older brother was suddenly cut off by an accident, then ___ a loving and devoted mother, and now the younger brother, just in the morning of his life, has also fallen. May these solemn and afflictive providences admonish us all that we have no abiding or continuing city here. ___ to make haste to seek one that is to come.

In this world full of tears, of sickness and sorrow,
Of parting and woe and keen pain.
How sad – but for hopes on some blissful to mourn,
We shall meet one another again,
Where the fond ties of friendship of sister and mother,
Re-united shall ever remain;
Where the parent and child and the brother meet brother,
And never to be parted again.

Father dear ah! Can it be,
Thou art no more distressed,
That death hath kindly sat the [thee] free,
And thou art now at rest?
We will not call thee back; our world at best,
Is filled with moanings of the stricken heart;
And in the mansion of the Savior blest,
Grief never enters with its bitter smart.
Can we forget departed friends, ah! No;
Within our hearts their memory buried lies;
The thought that where they are we too shall go,
Will cast a light o’er darkest scenes of woe.

At Peoria, Illinois, April_ 1862, of wounds received in the battle of Pittsburg Landing, on the 6 th of April, W. THORNTON SWAIN, Capt. of Company H , 12 th Regiment, Illinois Volunteers, aged 45 years.
Capt. Swain was an old citizen of Uniontown, and extensively and favorably known throughout Fayette, Washington and Greene counties as a generous and kind hearted gentleman. He emigrated to Illinois some nine years since, and located in Tiskilwa, Bureau County, Ill., where he resided at the breaking out of the present rebellion. At the call of his country, he raised a volunteer company and was chosen Captain, a position he was well qualified to fill. He was at the battle and at the capture of Fort Donelson , Tennessee, and came off honorably and without a scratch. He again led his brave "sucker" boys gallantly at the battle of Pittsburg Landing against the overwhelming number of rebels on the first day of the battle, and was struck in the hip by a canister shot. He was placed on a boat and was proceeding home , attended by two physicians and some of his brave boys who had followed him in the thickest of the unequal contest of April 6 th. When he arrived at Peoria, some fifty miles from his happy home, his dear wife and little ones, he expired. His remains were conveyed to Tiskilwa , and interred in the cemetery with Odd Fellows and Masonic honors. When informed that he could not recover , he calmly said, " he was ready and willing to die, and that his hopes of the future were clear and bright." He died as a brave soldier dies.
He leaves a wife and three children to mourn their loss in the death of a kind and affectionate husband and father; but he also left to them an honorable name, gloriously won, not only in the private walks of life , but on the victourous field of the Union army, battling in a righteous cause. "
How sleep the brave who sink to rest, With all their country's honors
blest." COM

bullet Miranda SWAN died in 1854. Her obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(17)

Again has the archer shot his fatal dart into our midst, and cut down, in the prime of life a lovely and beloved member of the Presbyterian Church of Dunlap's Creek. —Mrs. Miranda Swan, consort of Presly Swan, died at the residence of her father, Mr. John Hibbs, on the 5th inst. Her disease was the rapid form of pulmonary consumption. She has left an afflicted husband and five young children to mourn their early and irreparable loss. To her death's sudden approach did not seem a surprise. Obedient to the divine injunction she appeared to have her "house set in order." Dying with her was truly like going home, such was the heavenly tranquility that reigned around her and pervaded her mind through all her last sickness. It was the edifying close of a truly Christian life, in which divine race wrought out its befitting fruits. — She had selected as expressive of her views and feelings in the prospect of her change, to be sung at her funeral service, that beautiful hymn —

"I would not live alway: I ask not to stay
Where storm alter storm rises dark o'er the way,"
"Her sun went down while it was yet day,"
to rise, we trust, in cloudless beauty,
where the sun of glory and felicity never sets."
Many fall as sudden, not as safe"
In the contemplation of her peaceful end,
once can hardly frain from the exclamation,"
O that I might die the death of the righteous"

Bud SWANEY ( -1905)

DEATH WON RACE
Fatal Finish to a Friendly Pony Race
at Mount Braddock.

   Death won in a pony race between Bud Swaney and his brother Jake, aged 15 years, at Mount Braddock last evening. In the friendly contest, Bud, who is 25 years old, was thrown from his pony and sustained injuries from which he died at the Uniontown Hospital last night at 11 o’clock. After their work yesterday the two young men, each of whom owned a pony, agreed to race from the street railway station to the brick works and return. The two ponies mixed up at the run and Bud was thrown to the ground. He struck his head and lay unconscious. His brother ran his pony on to the end of the course before it was discovered that Bud was badly hurt. The was hurried to the hospital as rapidly as possible. Both young men were well known around Mount Braddock and were popular. Coroner Hagan was notified of the death. It is not probable that an inquest will be conducted as the death was purely accidental.

Peter SWARTZ ( -1869)

Obituary is typed as published. Surname is spelled differently.

   On Thursday last, in the woolen factor, of Stewara & Tate, Sunny Side, near Saltsburg, Westmoreland county, Pa., Mr. Peter Swarts was killed instantly. The following are the particulars: Mr. Swartz in response to the 8 A. M. signal to go to work, repaired to his post and before going to work attempted to shorten one of the bolts, threw it off at the wrong side of the pully, which brought him in direct contact. It caught him around the legs, and in an instant drew him up among three metal pulleys, dashing his head with terrible violence against a beam which supports the second floor, mashing his head into almost innumerable particles, dispensing it in all directions. The skull was broken in many pieces.
