Lovel Mead

About 8 A. M. last Thursday, Lovel Mead, aged about 25, a single man living with his father on Morgan Prairie, in this county, fell from the fence upon a hay knife so that it cut through his right breast into the lungs and stomach. Being alone he rose and walked about 8 rods to Mr. Weiderman's gate when he fell from faintness, and was taken home where he died the evening of the same day. He was a granger, and his funeral conducted by the Washington Grange at Luther's School House last Sunday. The same young man is said to have suffered several misfortunes during his life, and, among others, one year or two ago, in having his hand shot and permanently crippled. Abundance of pity for his fate and sympathy with his mourning relatives are felt by the community around.
