    Notes 
    • What came near being a fatal accident happened at the Bowen Bros. Mine last Monday, just at noon. While the company's foreman, M.H. Means, with some others, were doing some work at the road bed, a fall of slate and rock came down, catching a young man named Green, and cutting and crushing him. The fall came down on Mr. Means as he was running back from it, fracturing his back bone. He was hoisted to the top and Dr. Pollard, after a hurried examination, phoned to Clinton for Drs. Shakland and Gibbons. They found he had received a fracture of the back and it is thought it may be necessary to perform an operation to remove some bone particles. The Drs. placed him in a cast of plaster paris to hold his back in place and await developments. Mr. Means lost his wife over a year ago, leaving him with seven small children. The great calamity that has befallen him will render his little ones in a manner homeless and without any means of support.
