A Fata! Fall,
Waterloo Reporter:—On Friday evening last, Albert Hurley, familiarly known as "Bub" Hurley, met a sad death. He and several companions were walking around after indulging in a keg of beer. They were at the east end of Fifth street bridge when Hurley said “I'll show you fellows something: good-bye." He put his hands upon the railing of the bridge, and, throwing his left leg over the railing, he fell head foremost into the bed of the river, the water only being three or four inches deep where he fell. The men with him notified an officer and got him out as soon as possible and conveyed him to his home. A physician was summoned, and the injured man made as comfortable as possible, death coming at 2:30 Saturday morning. Hurley was 29 years old and leaves a wife and two children. The funeral was held at 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon. The general impression is that it was an accident and not a suicide.
