W. C. PARSONS

Monday about 11 o’clock W. C. Parsons, who lived five miles west of town, was leading two mules through a gate by ropes when one of them pulled back.  The ropes got tangles around his wrists and the mules ran away, dragging him some distance.  He struck a post and sustained injuries, from which he died at 10 o’clock this morning.

His remains were interred in the Peoria Cemetery this afternoon.  He left a wife and three sons and daughters.  He was a highly esteemed citizen.
