Death Comes To John Wilson
    The remains of John Wilson, age 86, who died in Indianapolis from injuries received when struck by an auto driven by Thomas Mills were brought to this city Tuesday and taken to the Ebenezer cemetery for interment. Until recently the deceased resided in Vernon township. He is well known in this county having several years operated a threshing machine and at one time operated the old grist mill at Wilson ford.
    Mills was arrested on a charge of assault and battering following the accident. His case was set for hearing in Indianapolis, September 10. Now that the victim died, Mill will probably be tried on a manslaughter charge.
