    • Meets Death In Fa11 Off Load Of Hay

      Edwin Moyer, aged 56, a wellknown farmer on the Preston Breslau road, was fatally injured on his farm last night when he fell off a load of hay, which was being drawn to the barn. Mr. Moyer died in the Galt general hospital at noon today, as a result of a fractured spine. He was attended by Dr. Claude Reist of Preston. From what can be learned Mr. Moyer and his son were rushing in the hay crop and on taking his last load into the barn Mr. Moyer lost his balance falling to the ground. Gray Brothers ambulance from Preston, was called and removed the injured farmer to the hospital. The accident happened about, seven o'clock.

      The late Mr. Moyer had resided on the Preston Breslau highway all his life, having been born on the property which until his death was his farm and was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Noah Moyer, both of whom survive and reside on the Preston Breslau road. There also survire his wife, one daughter, Elsie and four sons, Elton of the Preston Breslau road, Howard of Peterborough, Herbert at home and Lloyd of Mozetta, Alberta. Coroner Dr. Anthony Oaks of Preston was notified of the deat, early this afternoon and no inquest will be held. The funeral will take place Saturday afternoon at 2.30 o'clock.
