Heise, Albert, formerly a resident in Town Washington, was killed in a terrible way in his saw mill in Meherrin, Virginia.  Mr. Heise operated a brick factory in Town Washington with great success until three years ago when he moved to the village of Meherin, Virginia.  He purchased a reasonable large piece of excellent forest land, which he enjoyed.  He built a saw mill, where he was found dead a few days ago.  The details of his accident are unknown.

The deceased was a very kind man and a good citizen, devoted to his wife, and a loving father to his children.  He was a member of the Meherin EV. Lutheran Church of the Missouri Synod.  The news of his death brought great sorrow to his friends and acquaintances in Shawano and Oconto County.
