A SAD ACCIDENT
The accidental death of John Treat on the C. S. Ry., on which he was employed as brakeman, last Monday threw a thrall of sorrow over his friends, which means the entire comunity here for John was universally liked. It is probable that it will never be known just how he happened to get killed, more than to know that he came by his death on the train, supposedly by falling off. His remains were brought in and taken to Dr. Sayles' hospital, where they were taken charge of by the I. O. O. F. fraternity, of which order he was a member. He was interred in the cemetery here [Shell Lake] Wednesday. The funeral was from the M. E. church, under the auspices of the Odd Fellows, and was one of the largest and most representative seen here, which in a measure speaks for the way deceased was esteemed.
He was one of those fellows who was fortunate to have nothing but feelings of good will from all whom he knew. It is consoling for his friends to think of this and to know that his life here was spent so as to leave nothing but fond remembrances; no apologies need they make for any of his acts; no enemies has he left, and nothing have they to regret for him, only the unfortunate circumstance of his untimely death, which is regretted by us all. His wife and relatives are entitled to our sympathies as the very nature of his death was almost enough to paralize.
He was in his 27th year; was born in Blue Earth county, Minn.; was one of a family of five children; was married and has a wife and one child surviving him, also his father, one brother Am., and sisters, Mrs. Les. Walker and Miss Bessie. The shock was hard for the members of his family to bear, but we must all bow to the will of Him who doth all things well.
