C. J. BEACH, was instantly killed at 9 o'clock last Thursday morning by
being run over by a hay press while on his way to the Powers school a mile
east of this boro. He had ridden from home to within a few rods of the
school house when hearing the last bell he tried to get off or fell and
was caught beneath one of the heavily loaded rear runners which passed
over his body just above the hips. He was immediately carried to the school
house and his parents and a physician summoned, but death had apparently
been instantaneous from the crushing of the spinal column. No blame attaches
to anyone for the sad accident. He was a bright promising boy, eight years
old, and a favorite with his playmates and all who knew him. Intelligence
of the accident was received in this boro with utmost sorrow and unstinted
expressions of sympathy for the bereaved parents. Funeral services were
held on Saturday at 1 o'clock from the house, the Rev. E. J. Rosengrant
officiating,assisted by the Rev. L. M. Gates. The late schoolmates of the
departed attended the obsequies in a body. Numerous floral offerings bespoke
the loving sympathy of mourning friends. The burial was in Oakwood cemetery.
