      Charles Frederick Dudenhoffer died at the Orillia hospital on Friday afternoon about 6 o'clock, as the result of injuries sustained in an accident near Atherley the same afternoon. Deceased was employed on the Canadian Northern railway construction at Atherley, and with a gang under Chas. Paulson, foreman, was engaged in making a 9 foot cut on the Doolittle property. They were digging between two walls of earth which was covered with a thick frozen crust. In order to break this crust of earth away, the men were undermining it about a foot all the way along and then loosening it from above.
      About 1:45 Friday afternoon when the crust had been undermined to what was thought the right exxtent, the men tried to loosen and break off the ledge above. They worked fo about 15 minuted and were not successful, so work was stopped from above and the men together with deceased went down to take another load of loose earth.
      While there the crust broke and caused a big cave in, over two thousand pounds of earth and stone being dislodged. A large quantity of it pinned deceased down crushing him terribly and breaking several bones. The others rushed to his rescue and got him out quickly.
      He was taken to the Orillia hospital, but lived only a couple of hours. Coroner Dr. Jno. Mclean made a thorough investigation of the circumstances and decided that an inquest was not necessary. Deceased was in his 34th year and a son of Mrs. Dudenhoffer of Atherley, where he lived with his mother. Orillia Times.
