MANTUA MAN DIES SUDDENLY
While in the act of feeding his animals shortly after five o'clock Wed. evening, Ole Olsen, prominent resident of Manuta fell over dead. Mr. Olsen & his son Scott had been into the canyon during th early part of the day and got a load of wood. After his return home he put up his team, had a bite to eat then went out to saw some wood. Shortly after 5 o'clock he went into the barn to feed his animals and when he failed to return to the house his wife went to the barn to investigate and was horrified to find her husband lying on the hay with a pitchfork in his hand, dead. Heart failure was the cause of death and it must have caught Mr. Olsen while in the act of putting hay into the manger.
