Died From Lockjaw
Yesterday afternoon, Earl, the sixteen-year-old son of Henry Shively, pressman at the Staats Zeitung, who lives at No. 87 Zane street, died of lockjaw. About two weeks ago he accidentally ran a rusty nail in his foot. The matter was not given the proper medical attention at the time and in a short time afterward the wound healed up sufficiently to permit the boy to go out and walk around. There was no thought that the matter would terminate seriously, but several days ago he was taken very ill and physician sent for. He grew worse, however, until a few days ago his jaws became perfectly locked and rigid. Not a particle of food could be passed through his mouth and death came as a relief to his sufferings.
