A sad accident occurred at the mills of J.A. and S.J. Durkee last Wednesday, when Allen Jewett received a fatal injury by a log rolling over him, from which he died early Thursday morning. Dr. Minard was immediately summoned but all efforts at saving his life were unavailing. He was a hard working man, a good citizen, and his sad death is a fearful blow to his family. He was about 55 years old, and leaves a widow and one son.
