Obituary

Warren Hescock was seriously injured about the head and face Wednesday afternoon by falling from one of the rafters in the barn of Luther Dustin at West Dummerston. Hescock was mowing hay when he lost his balance and fell to the floor, a distance of about 20 feet. He was unconscious when picked up. Drs. Webster and Pratt were immediately summoned, and it was found that there were severe contusions about the forehead. It is thought, however, that the skull is not fractured.
