          At Shelbyville, Shelby County, the other day  Percy Jeffers, the ten-year-old daughter of  J. S. Jeffers,  jumped into a bin of wheat at her father's elevator just as the spout was opened at the bottom to load the grain into a car.   A little boy who was with the child ran below and told Mr. Jeffers what had happened, but before the body was taken out life was extinct.
