Mr. James Yeager, a substantial young man and partner in the firm of Reeves, Blevins & Co. was terribly mangled in the machinery of their saw-mill about two miles and a half from town, Friday morning at ten o’clock. He was caught in the belts, thrown forward on the pulleys, his arm was broken in two places, his skull fractured, and his ribs broken by the fall. He lived in great agony until 3 o’clock p.m. the same day, when death released him.—Hartselle Index.
