A Fatal Accident.
Waukon Standard.—John Hilmo, of Round Prairie, Allamakee Co., met with an accident on last Thursday, that resulted in his death this morning. He was drilling a well in Union township, and was on the horse power when the horses gave a sudden start which threw the platform from under him and he fell into the cogs. His foot was badly crushed and he received some internal injuries. On Sunday it was decided that amputatition{sp} was necessary, and the operation was performed. This did not have the desired results, however, and the unfortunate man died this morning.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born April 5, 1864 and died April 27, 1898. He is buried in West Paint Creek Synod Cemetery.
