ORANGEVILLE BANNER
October 11,p.5:John Rutheram - John Rutheram, a 16-year-old Barnado Home Boy from England, who has been employed at Joseph Kendrew's, Primrose for the last year and a half, was one of those who were working at Samuel Buchanan's threshing, lot 19, Prince of Wales Road, Mono, on Tuesday. When quitting time came in the evening, Rutheram, who was on a stack of straw, undertook to slide off with his fork in his hand. By some means he held the fork by the tines instead of by the handle, and on landing he fell forward on the tines, which penetrated his abdomen above the lower rib and doutless into his heart, as he put his hands to the injured part, said, "I'm hurt here!" fell foward, gasped a couple of times, and was dead before the startled onlookers scarcely realized what was the matter. Coroner Steels, of Shelburne, viewed the body, but deemed an inquest unnecessary. The funeral takes place to Shelburne cemetery this (Thursday) morning at 10 o'clock. - Economist
