Full Text

Seriously injured in an accident on his farm earlier in the week, the tragic death of Joseph Fletcher, popular and prominent 25-year-old Binbrook farmer, occurred suddenly in St. Joseph's Hospital early Saturday morning. After an outstanding scholastic career, Mr. Fletcher, son of Niram A. Fletcher, reeve of Binbrook, was well-started on what promised to be a brilliant agricultural career. Friends and relatives throughout the entire county and the province are joining his grief-stricken bride of 10 weeks, his mother, father, and two brothers, in sincere sympathy.

Earlier in the week, Mr. Fletcher had been kicked in the back by a cow on his farm and suffered internal injuries. Doctors operated on him twice in an effort to correct the damage done, but to no avail. When he rallied later, his family and friends held high hopes that, with his strong constitution, he would recover. On Wednesday, complications set in and despite every effort by attending doctors, a relapse occurred, and Mr. Fletcher succumbed early Saturday morning.
