The sad news reached our town last week of the sudden and untimely death of a 12 year old son of  Aaron Sapinsky, formerly of this county but now of Louisville.  The boy was working as errand boy at his fatherŐs furniture factory in Louisville and last Friday afternoon his coat caught on a belt and he was carried to instant death without a momentŐs notice.  He was hurled to the pully shaft and his head and arms were severed from his body.  Our people sympathize with the bereaved.
