The entire community was shocked Sunday morning to learn that George Eberhart, who had been fireman at the light plant ever since its establishment, had been electrocuted about 11 o'clock Saturday night. Mr. Eberhart was eating his lunch and had a bucket of coffee in his hand. He reached out adjust some part of the machinery, when the metal of the bucket came in contact with the wires, forming a current. The full strength of the electric current, about 2,200 volts, passed through his body, killing him instantly.
