- Fatal Accident.
On Wednesday the 18th of July, Jacob Gotbold met his death very suddenly, near St. Mary's, Canada West. He was employed as a brakesman on the Grand Trunk R. R. He was standing on the roof of a freight car, as it was approaching a deep cut where the road passed under the bridge of the National Cross Road. Not seeing the bridge, he struck his head against it, and was instantly killed. His body was taken in care by the superintendent of the road and brought to Berlin, Waterloo Co., where his parents reside and on Friday the 20th it was deposited at the Mennonite grave-yard (Eby's), there to rest free from all earthly pains. He was about 19 years of age.
