FATAL ACCIDENT. CARL BUELOW, son of John BUELOW of Washington, had his skull crushed in by a falling limb on Friday of last week while felling a tree. He had just finished chopping the tree when the limb struck him. Two men who were sawing near by found him lying at the foot of the tree, shortly afterward, in an unconscious condition, and carried him to his home. Drs. McComb and Munn were called and found the boy still alive, though, on examining his injury, they found there was no hope of recovery. The force of the blow had crushed a hole through the skull about the size of a dollar, and from this was oozing the brain fluid. Several particles of bone and also a piece of the fatal limb were taken from the wound. The young man lingered in an unconscious condition until Sunday evening when life became extinct. He was about 14 years of age and his death is sorely felt by his parents.
