What proved to be a happy deliverance
from death occurred at the
farm home of Jacob Bauer, three or
four miles southeast of town (Exira), last
Friday morning. Mrs. Bauer had
gone down into the cave to skim
the milk for the calves, and by the
way that cave is a very deep and
wide one, and is covered with a
ponderous weight of dirt and brick
and timbers, and the good lady had
finished her task, came on the outside
and was turning around to
close the door, when, with a tremendous
crash, the whole top and
sides of the cave fell in. Had Mrs.
Bauer been but a few moments
later in coming out of the cave, she
must certainly have been crushed
into an unrecognizable mass, for
her husband informs us that the
debris was piled so high that no
human hand could have reached
her in time to have saved her life.
It was a happy deliverance from
death, and her friends are exceedingly
glad of it.

Note: Parents of Lucy M. Dutler were Samuel Dutler and Anna Maria Graham. Lucy was married to John Jacob "Jake" Bauer, noted Exira butcher.
