|Death: ||Mar. 17, 1886|
Last evening about 8 o'clock W.O. Stanley, the well-known expressman, drove home and to the stable for the purpose of putting up his horse. As he was engaged in this work one of his little step sons, Charles Frederick Dale, a boy about 8 years of age, ran out with the view of assisting in his boyish way, and as Mr. Stanley was carrying some hay he heard a commotion among the horses and also the cries of the boy. He rushed to his assistance and found the little fellow beneath the feet of the two horses almost helpless. He was carried to the house and Dr. Hunt summoned as soon as possible. The doctor arrived in a very brief space of time and found that the boy had sustained fatal internal injuries, from which he died in about an hour. The funeral is to be held at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W.O. Stanley, in the north eastern part of the city, this afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. W.H. Bonnell officiating. Mr. and Mrs. Stanley have the sympathies of the entire community in their sad affliction.
