Charles Chester

Fatal Accident to Charles Chester.

Charles Chester, who was running a saw in a tobacco-box factory at Definance, Ohio, was struck last Saturday by a piece of board which was caught and thrown out by the saw. It struck him in the pit of the stomach, inflicting internal injury from which he died on Monday. His brother-in-law, James Maxwell, started from here directly on receipt of a telegram, but arrived at Defiance too late to see the unfortunate fellow alive.

Mr. Chester was generally and favorably known here, and well liked by his employers. Two surviving sisters, Mrs. James Maxwell and Mrs. John Marine, of this county, and a younger brother in California, remain to mourn his death, their parents having died when he was but a small child.

The body of Mr. Chester was brought to this city for interment, and the funeral ceremony was conducted at 2 p. m. yesterday, by Rev. N. L. Brakeman, at the Methodist church.
