At ten o'clock on Monday morning, March 9th, while assisting with a gang of men working with a circular saw in cutting stove wood at the home of Robert Pruner's immediately north of the village of Smithville, Louis Culp, a well known resident of the Township of South Grimsby, in some manner had his clothing catch in the revolving shaft which stripped every stitch he had on from his body from the waist up.

The men working with him,according to report, apparently did not see the accident until they discovered the unfortunate man lying beneath the saw frame, with his ear cut, his eyes open in a vacant stare, and unconscious.

Dr. Zumstien was hurriedly summoned by phone and later Dr. Mowbray, of Hamilton, was called.

The unfortunate man's neck was broken. He was removed to his home nearby, and passed away early Wednesday morning. He leaved a widow and large family.
