Fatal Accident Happened Saturday Afternoon at His Farm Home.

The death of Dan Lavelle occurred at his farm home about 10 miles south of the city Saturday afternoon at about 2 o'clock while he was engaged in helping unload a wagon of hay. He fell from the front of the load striking his head on the tongue of the wagon and died within an hour, death being caused by a clot of blood having formed on the brain as a result of the fall.

The deceased was a former resident of Minto coming there from Ontario, Canada, in 1878. He came to Grand Forks about three years later where he lived up to the time of his death. One brother, Owen Lavalle of Walle township, survives him.

The funeral was held from St. Mary's Catholic Church this morning at 9 o'clock, Rev. Father M. J. Fletcher officiating. Interment took place in Calvary cemetery.
