Note: He is buried in the Riverside Cemetery.

A Sad and Fatal Accident.

Last Friday the two-year-old son of H. B. Engle, of Westfield township, was kicked on the left temple by a young horse and from the result of the injury death occurred in a few hours.

Dr. Clark was immediately summoned, but was unable to relieve the little sufferer. The skull was fractured and it was impossible to remove the tension from the brain.

What makes it more distressing is the fact that Mr. Engle had but recently removed from his old home in South Dakota. He had rented a farm in Westfield township and was getting in readiness to do his spring work.

Death came to his door and snatched away the lamb of the flock—the pet of the household. If others could have been less well spared, none could have been less well spared, none could have been more missed. There are a number of hearts that will ache when they are turned to mourn—as mourn they will-over that little grave in the Akron cemetery.

God be with them and comfort the. Rev. W. H. Swartz conducted the funeral services, and sympathetic neighbors assisted.
