observed that some oC the ma chines oiled by Fritz were showing lack of care He oiled the machinery then set out to look for Fritz finally finding him prostrate on the floor His head rested face downward on a low plat form while his feet were under a line shaft that is about three feet above tho floor Art eightyarc light Wood dynamo stands three feet to the left of the platform on which Fritzs head rested It is supposed that Fritz acci dentally brushedone of the two pro truding brass knobs of this machine and after receiving the fatal shock fell backward and rolled into the position

his pres ent wife then MissBusby No child is left to mourn his He has been in the employ of tho Electric Light company for three years past and has always borne an excellent rep utation as industrious
