          A special from Shelbyville, Friday, says:  While working in the veneering room of the Birely & Co. table factory today,  Willis Pile,  age 19 and single, pulled an iron press over on himself, a flange on which penetrated his skull, killing him.  When falling Pile, doubtless not anticipating the result, shouted to his fellow workmen, “Good-bye, boys.”
Note:  William R. Pile.  Date of birth, 8 Sep 1880 - Indiana.  Date of death, 30 Nov 1900 – Shelby County, Indiana.
