Obituary

A PROBABLY FATAL ACCIDENT

A serious accident, which will probably cost one man his life, occurred Wednesday morning at Mr. M. F. Kelly's farm near Dunbar's Hotel.

Marble Bissonette, with his son, and Bert Robinson, were at work putting an iron roof on Mr. Kelley's barn. The staging gave away, and the elder Mr. Bissonette and Robinson fell to the ground, a distance of 40 feet. Robinson struck on one leg, breaking an arm, and badly sprained one wrist. Bissonette struck on one leg and then fell over. Besides other severe injuries he is suffering from a concussion of the brain, and it thought his skull was fractured at the base. He was picked up unconcious. At the last account he was still in the same condition. Young Bissonette caught a ladder that was on the roof when he felt the staging go away, and pulled himself up on the barn.
