Fond Du Lac

Torn To Pieces

Fond du Lac, Wis. - Dec. 31 - A report has reached here of the death of a former resident by a peculiar and horrible accident. Deceased was Jacob Avery, and he was owner and operator of the Greenbush, Sheboygan county, grist mill. On Christmas day, his family missing him, his son went into the mill to look for him, when Mr. Avery's mangles remains were found in the basement. He had undoubtedly been in a set screw on the main shaft, and whirled about till his legs and arms were broken and his head pounded to a jelly. The remains were completely shorn of clothing, and the mill was running unattended.
