A KHIGIITKL'L ACCIDENT AT T11K l'APKR MILL. Ou Friday of last week at 1 a. m., an accident occurred at the boxshop the re sult of which has saddened the whole community. While at work in the lower part of the mill Arthur L,ewis received injuries which resulted in his death. His sleeves caught in some machinery and in trying to extricate it, the upper part of his right arm was crushed beyond all hope of saviig it. With the courage which has always characterized Mr Lewis he found his way alone to the upper part of the mill, where other em ployes were, and there in the midst of all his suffering, his first thought was of his family. He was assisted to his residence, which is near the mill, and DrShephe d called, who bound up tbe arm as well as possible and advised his removal to tbe hospital at Waterbury. He was taken there on the 8 a. m., train accompanied by Dr Barnes and Harry Carpenter asDr Shepherd was unable to leave town that day. At the hospital the arm was am putated at the shoulder; he seemed to en dure the operation well, but toward night grew worse and Mrs Lewis was sent for. He died the following morning at 6 30 a. m. The funeral was attended from the chapel Tuesday at 1 p. m., Rev J. O. Munson officiating:. Mr Lewis leaves a wife and seven children, and the whole community join with them in mourning the loss of a father, a friend, and an honorable Christian gentleman. He had been for many years a member of the Methodist church and' with each added year of his life, has-renewed and increas ed his eff irts to promote the cause of Christ and to help his fellow men to a higher conception of life and & better understanding of Him "who doeth all thing well," and his devotion to this cause was only paralelled by his devotloa to his family.
