BAILEY, A.H. A.H. Bailey was killed at the Rogers White Lime Co. Plant at Limedale Monday morning by falling from the tramway that leads to the lime kilns. He was unconscious when found by his fellow workers and although the doctors were summoned from Rogers and reached him within half an hour nothing could be done for him and he died about eleven o'clock. The injury was at the base of the skull and the fracture a severe one. No one saw the accident but two of his fellow worker saw him standing on the little lime car as it started up the tramway. The cars are pulled up this tramway by a long cable from the power house and the men walk or ride just as they like. The cars start quite slowly and the car was only a short distance up the tramway when the accident occurred. The men said Bailey was standing on one foot on the front of the car waving his arms at them as he disappeared form view. When they heard the car fall they ram to the tramway and found Bailey on the ground unconscious and the care was bottom side up a few feet further on. Bailey fell about ten feet. The heel of one shoe was crushed and twisted and it looks as though he had fallen in front of the car, which ran over his foot and was thrown from the track. Those who visited the place were of the opinion that Bailey was struck on the back of the head by the car before it left the tramway. A careful examination showed no defect in the rails and it jumped in the middle of the rail and not at the join. This is the first serious accident at the lime plant during the twelve years of its history under its present management. Mr. Bailey was 28 years old and leaves a wife and one child. He lived on the Joe Thomas place south of Limedale. He had been at the lime plant about eight months and was one of their most trusted men. His parents live at Johnson in Washington county and he had several brothers in Madison county. Funeral services were held Tuesday morning and interment was at the Pleasant Grove cemetery west of Limedale.
