It is always sad to report a death and it is doubly so when a father, the head of the household is taken from life without a moments warning. It is however our sad duty, this week, to chronicle the death of another respected resident of this community, Julius Baumgartel, who came to an untimely death, Tuesday, while at work at the home of his neighbor, Dan Carter.

Mr. Baumgartel was cutting wood with a buzz saw and had worked only about an hour when his coat caught in a pulley and twisted him around, striking his head on a block to which the saw was fastened. His head was cut open on the left side and badly bruised. He lingered until six o'clock in the evening when life was extinguished. Mr. Baumgartel was about 55 years of age and leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss. He was a social member of the Modern Woodmen in the Lyle Lodge, and was an honest and industrious citizen.

The funeral will held from the house this (Friday) noon and interment will be made in Enterprise cemetery. Rev. Bear will preach the funeral sermon and the Woodmen will take charge of the services. Their friends in this vicinity extend sympathy to the family in their bereavement.
