ANOTHER DEATH
--Chas Keetch was found dead in the Paris bottoms Thursday afternoon. It is supposed while raking hay, he was taken with a fit and fell in such a manner that his neck caught in the rake wheel choking him to death.
--The deceased had lived long in the valley and was widely known. He leaves a wife and several grown up children.

St. Charles, Idaho September 6, 1896 Brother Charles G. Keetch Senior was brought home dead last Thursday. He went to the hayfield last Monday, about fifteen miles distant, in his usual health, to put up hay. About noon Thursday his son and brother-in-law, S. Matthews, went to dinner, expecting him to come in a few minutes, as he had about 20 minutes more raking to do. And as he did not come, they became uneasy, and on looking out they saw the rake horse was standing still. The son mounted a horse and rode to where his father was. He had fallen from the seat, one of his feet had caught in the lever of the rake, while his head was between two spokes of the wheel. Life was extinct. It is supposed that he died in a fit {fainting spell}, as he has been subject to them for a number of years. Brother Keetch was one of the pioneers of St. Charles, coming from Grantsville, Utah, in 1864. He died a faithful Latter-day Saint. Funeral services were held in the meeting house yesterday at 11 a.m.
