Killed by a Thrashing Machine.
Clear Lake Mirror:—A very sad accident occurred near Whittemore Saturday afternoon, which resulted in the death of August Heyer. He, with his brother, was running a threshing machine, and was finishing a job, when his foot slipped and it was caught in the cylinder, drawing his leg in to the hip, and cutting it all to pieces. He lived about four hours after the accident happened. He leaves a wife, two children and a sick mother.
