Thirty Years Ago
The little son of Argen Geerdes, who lives near Wellsburg, met a horrible death Saturday afternoon. The father had been acting as engineer for a traction engine used in threshing grain. The little fellow had been playing about the machinery and had told his father that he wanted to ride on the wagon and to be hauled by the engine. The little fellow crawled into one of the wagons without his father's knowledge and lost his hold and fell to the ground, the wheels of the wagon passing over him. He lived about one hour.
