FATAL ACCIDENT - On Monday afternoon at about five o'clock, a young man by the name of Wm. H. Yeaton, while at work at Harvey's Mills, in the lower part of this city, was suddenly killed. He was at work about the saw mill, and while roling a log into the pond, in some way he was thrown under it. He was alone at the moment, but it is supposed that while he was endeavoring to move the log his cant hook slipped, and striking him threw him over it upon the timbers. The log rolled over upon him, and he was found under it with his head and breast badly crushed. He must have died instantly. Hon. Jacob F. James, the coroner, was called to view the body, but the facts were so apparent that he did not deem an inquest necessary. He was a native of Epsom, and was twenty-seven years of age, and was the son of the late William Yeaton of that place. He has been in the employ of the Messrs. Harvey about three years, and was regarded as a very active and worthy young man. He was unmarried. His remains were taken to Epsom for interment.

"We deeply mourn with you the sudden, and to us, untimely death of our young friend, L. Burton Young. He had endeared himself to us and we esteemed and loved him. The whole town and community are touched with the say providence of his death as was evidenced on a stormy night by the presence of about 250 persons at a solemn service on Sabbath night at 9 o'clock. Among them were some elderly people who seldom go out at night. He unite with our Presbyterian church by letter and was a loyal, interested and beloved member. He lived a useful, good life in our midst and went with good people. Like Daniel, he was true to God. We regret his departure and truly weep with those at home. It was the Lord's will and may He give his bereaved loved ones grace and strength to bear the sorrow and may we all meet by and by as the Lord's people, to part no more.
"Yours in Christian sorrow and sympathy,
