November 15, 1882 - Arthur Spiller met with an accident at the Grand Detour Plow works on Monday which came near proving fatal. While putting a belt on a pulley, the fastenings of the belt caught in his clothing in an instant, whirling him up over the shafting and thrashing his feet and legs against the joints above. As his clothing was torn from his body he caught on the shaft with his arm, the friction burning the flesh to a blister. When taken down it was found that his feet and legs were badly mashed and lacerated and his body bruised, but no bones were broken.
November 22, 1882 - Arthur Spiller, whose severe injuries in the Grand Detour plow works was mentioned in The Sun last week, died on Saturday morning from inflammation of the bowels resulting from his injuries. His fellow workmen of the plow works, to over one hundred, marched in procession at the funeral. He leaves a wife and two small children.
