Injuries Fatal

William Sporey of Neshannock, a valued employee of the Ella Furnace Company for many years died at Buhl Hospital from the effects of injuries sustained yesterday afternoon while at work in the cast house.  He and others were changing a worn chill and he was caught with the bar with which they were raising it, when one of the hooks that was fastened to the chill slipped off.  He was thrown into the air and alighted on his head on another of the chills, fracturing his skull.  He was hurried to the Buhl Hospital in the Pettit ambulance and although everything possible was done for him his death resulted.

Mr. Sporey was a consistent member of Lebanon church.  The funeral will be held from the church at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon.  Rev Mr. Jordan will officiate and interment will be made in the church cemetery.
