Farmer Cut To Death By Binding Machine Knives

Falls In Fron Of It As He Tries To Stop Runaway Horses

Killed when he fell into the knives of a wheat binder after an unsuccessful attempt to stop the runaway team attached to it, James M. Halstead, 40, will be buried at Meridian tomorrow afternoon.

Halstead died on the farm of Fred Whiting, Cross Lake Rd., three miles south of Meridian, while a small boy looked on.

The boy, a neighbor's son, was playing in the field where Halstead was working, when a rabbit darted from one stack of wheat to another.

Halstead saw the animal & left the team of horses for a minute while he tried to catch it for the boy.

The instant he left the team on the steep hillside of the farm the horses started to run. Halstead forsook his rabbit chase & ran in front of the team. He grabbed one of the horses by the head & hung on but the team continued its mad pace down the hill.

For a few hundred feet the farmer maintained his hold. Then his strength failed. He slipped & fell in the path of the binder knives. Death was instantaneous.

As the horses crashed into a fence at the foot of the hill, badly injuring themselves & smashing the wheat binder, the neighbor's boy ran to the farmhouse & brought help.

A physician summoned from Cato pronounced Halstead dead & an undertaker removed the body to his home, adjoining the Whiting Farm. Mrs. Halstead died in the influenza epidemic a few years ago. Surviving are his father, James Halstead; three brothers, Caetna (Chena), who lived with him, Edward of Meridian & Ora (Oren) J. also of Meridian.

Mr. Hiram Hunter, one of Westfield's most substantial and respected citizens, died of heart failure Saturday morning between the hours of eight and nine o'clock. He had arisen as usual and eaten a hearty breakfast and was not, to any outward appearence, ill. He went to the chicken coop to attend to the chickens and as he did not return after a reasonable time, his wife went out to see what was the matter and found him lying down and evidently dead. Men were summoned and the stricken man was removed to the house and a doctor summoned, but it was apparent that he was beyond earthly help when picked up.

Mr. Hunter has for years been a resident of Westfield and was a man that enjoyed the respect of all. He was honest and straightforward. There was never any enterprise for the benefit of the town that did not find in him a ready champion. He was always one of the heavy taxpayers, but he never grumbled at taxes so long as the town was being improved. He was Burgess of Westfield Borough from 1884 to 1887 was was reelected in 1889. He also served on the Council and was one of the men to whom the town could always look for aid and counsel in matters of importance. His sudden death will be deeply regretted by all and in his demise Westfield has lost one of her stalwart sons.

Mr. Hunter was for many years engaged in mercantile business here. In partnership with Burtis, later with W. N. McNaughton. He built two brick stores on Main street and a few years ago erected a fine brick residence at the corner of Lincoln and Main streets.

The deceased was born at Jasper, N.Y., Sept. 26, 1834 and was the son of Dr. Charles Hunter. When a young man he moved to Harrison Township where he followed the vocation of farming for some time. January 8, 1855 he was united in marriage with Mary Burtis and shortly afterwards engaged in the mercantile business with his father-in-law, Mr. Burtis. No children were born to them but in February 1869 they adopted Mary Outman, now Mrs. E. M. Tucker. July 13, 1894 Mrs. Hunter died. On May 5, 1897 Mr. Hunter was united in marriage with Mrs. Ellen Farr, who survives his death. He is also survived by a brother, Charles Edward Hunter, of Whites Corners, and two nephews, W.H. and R.C. Outman and two nieces, Mrs. E. M. Tucker and Delphia Outman. The funeral was held from the M.E. Church Monday afternoon, Rev. D.A. Parcells officiating. The Masonic fraternity of which Mr. Hunter had been a member for many years, attended the services and at the grave on Mount Pleasant cemetery, conducted the burial services.

Source: The Free Press Newspaper, Westfield, PA, July 19, 1894 edition:

Mrs. Mary Burtis Hunter was born at White's Corners, Potter Co., Pa., August 15th, 1839 and died at her home in Westfield, Pa., July 13th., 1894. When she was thirteen years of age she removed with her honored parents from her childhood home to this place. She was married to Hiram Hunter, Jan. 8th, 1855 and soon after began house keeping in Harrison, where they lived for the twelve following years, after which they returned to Westfield, where she spent the remainder of her life, having lived in this place about twenty-eight successive years. In this home no children were born to them, but she nobely supplied the kindly offices of a mother to a niece, who having been deprived in her early life by death of her mother, became to Mrs. Hunter as her own daughter.

When but fourteen years of age she experienced religion and united with the Methodist Episcopal church, of which she remained a faithful, intelligent and honored member until her death. In her life was exemplified the highest ideal of a Christian wife and mother.

In the community in which she lived, she was loved and respected by all who knew her as kind neighbor and a true friend.

Her character was the embodiment of all these virtues and qualities of heart and mind of which true womanhood consists. After the patient suffering of a long and protracted illness in which all was done to restore health that love could suggest or medical skill devise, she passed peacefully away.

"To life and not death,
From darkness to life's native skies;
From sickness and from pain,
To health and immortality."

The funeral services were conducted by her pastor at her late home Sunday afternoon, July 15th.

The reverent and tearful interest manifested in the services by the many neighbors and friends in attendance, testified to their universal sense of bereavement and their deep sympathy for the family of the deceased.

A motorcyclist was killed and his passenger seriously injured early today when their vehicle was struck from behind by an automobile at VanSlyke and Williamsburg roads in Flint Township.

A Caro man lost his life when his auto ran off M 81 in Tuscola County and struck a cement abutment early today.

Killed in the motorcycle-car crash was Kelly R. Hutchinson, 22, of 2254 E. Whittemore Ave., Burton Township.

Ramoi who with Hutchinson was thrown from the motorcycle, has skull and pelvic fractures and multiple cuts and bruises.

Sheriff's deputies said they are still investigating the accident which happened at 12:10 a.m.

They were told by the driver of the car, Arlen R. Wallace, 4292 Ashlawn Dr., Flint Township, that he did not see the motorcycle traveling ahead of him because another auto was approaching from the opposite direction. After the auto passed by, Wallace said he saw the motorcycle and started to swerve to the left.
