Eau Galle Miller Hurled To Death

One of the most horrifying accidents that ever occurred in Southern Dunn County was that in which Alson Drake lost his life in the Eau Galle power house Monday.

Mr. Drake, who was the miller at the plant, was caught in a rapidly revolving shaft and his life was literally beaten out as his body was whirled through the air with no help at hand.

The accident occurred in the morning, when Mr. Drake was alone in the plant with his little daughter, Merle, who is only 10 years old. Mr. Drake sent the child to the house on an errand, while he went to attend to the machinery in the story below. The little girl did as she was bidden, and then waited for her father to return. As he did not come the child went below, where she saw a sight that made her blood run cold. The lifeless form of her father being hurled about the shaft by the rapidly revolving machinery, the body being mutilated in a manner too horrible to describe.

Frantic with horror, the little girl ran screaming for help and her brother quickly came and shut off the power.

It was found that in the some manner the man's clothing had become engaged in the machinery and was torn to shreds while his body was drawn into the joint and swung about the shaft. The lower limbs were frightfully mangled, but fortunately the head and upper part of the body were not badly crushed. It is said that he was thrown with such force that the cement floor showed the marks of his shoes.

Mr. Drake was well-known to everyone in the vicinity of Eau Galle, where he grew to manhood and his tragic death has cast a gloom throughout the section. His grief-stricken family receives the tender sympathy of a wide circle of friends.

Note: Allison Edwin Drake, b. 16 Jul 1869 in Eau Galle was the son of Edwin Harvey Drake and Myrtie Mack. He died on 31 Aug 1911. His given name is Allison Edwin Drake commonly called Alson and he died on 28 Aug 1911.
