FATHER AND SON DIE BY ACCIDENTS
Walter Chase, a most highly esteemed citizen died Friday, following a fall on Monday while riding on a load of hay. He was brushed off by the limb of a tree, one of his legs being broken, which resulted in serious trouble and which later caused his death. Mr. Chase was a most devoted Christian worker and had never been found wanting. Where duty called he obeyed. He was 77 years old. He leaves one son besides his wife and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss. The funeral was held Sunday, Rev. I. P. Chase, a former pastor, officiating. The remains of Harry Chase were brought here the first of the week. Mr. Chase was kicked in the head by a horse and killed. He was the son of Walter Chase of this place, who was injured the same day. He leaves beside his wife one son to mourn his loss.
