DEATH IN ACCIDENT
A most distressing accident happened at Garrison or in that vicinity last Friday in which one of the most popular young Fillmore boys met his death. Parley Robison, who was but 16 years of age was helping put up the hay on the Robison ranch at Garrison, when the cross arm of the derrick pole with which the hay was being stacked, broke and fell hitting him on the back of the head, from the effects of which he never fully regained conciousness.
Ernest Nichols of Fillmore, who was riding the derrick horse heard the crack as the timber broke and shouted to Parley to "Look Out", but the young man believing that his comrade was merely having fun with on account of a broncho horse he was riding at the time, did not move and the heavy pole fell and struck him in the place indicated.
Mr. Nichols did all he could for the unfortunate victim, but failing to staunch the flow of blood, quickly mounted his horse and rode poste-haste for his father, Mr. Frank Robison, who was working further out on the ranch and brought him to the scene of the accident. It quickly became apparent to Mr. Robison that his son was seriously injured so arrangements were made for his conveyance by auto to Milford where he could receive the best of medical attention. The party quickly got underway, but the boy died on Saturday night having only partially regained consciousness.
Mrs. Robison was notified of the accident in Fillmore but in some way delivery of the telegram was delayed so that it was Sunday morning before she learned of the accident. She made arrangements to leave immediately, but on reaching Meadow, having been taken that far by William Killpack, word was received by phone that the young man had died the evening before and that his body was being brought home.
The party arrived here about Sunday noon and the grief of the stricken parents and relatives knew no bounds.
The funeral ceremony was held on Tuesday afternoon from the L. D. S. Chapel the speakers being Messrs. J. A. Kelly, J. D. Smith and Rufus Day, all of whom spoke of the sterling qualities of the deceased. Special music was rendered by the choir after which interment took place in the City Cemetery the remains being followed to their last resting place by a large gathering of his relatives and friends all in automobiles.
It is sad to give up one whose influence among men would, doubtless have been for the good; who by precept and example was as well calculated to spread abroad the blessed influence of Godly living. Yet He, who doeth all things well, makes no mistakes. The human link snapped asunder on earth is forged anew in Heaven. The yearning parents mourn not as one without hope. It is true that when beautiful youth is gone not much of life remains; hence the dear one's eyes are closed to all earthly trials. In his springtime of enthusiasm and tenderness, ere the sunshine of hope and joy was extinguished, he passed to the Glorious Beyond.
He leaves besides his parents, three sisters and two brothers besides numerous friends and relatives, all of whom mourn deeply at his sudden demise. The school children of Fillmore showed their respect for him by attending the funeral in a body, and some of the most beautiful floral offerings ever seen here were placed upon his casket by loving hands. The grave was dedicated by Almon D. Robison.
