JOHN  A. YOUNG  DIED  MONDAY
----------
Well Known Local Man, Native of County,
Died at Age of Eighty-nine Years
----------
PARALYSIS  CAUSED  DEATH
----------
Had Been in Ususal Health and About House Sunday
Ill in Early Morn
----------
                   
         John A. Young, age eighty-nine, native of Shelby county, and one of the oldest native-born residents of the county, died Monday morning at 9:55 o'clock at his home, 159 West Mechanic street.  His death was caused by paralysis.  Mr. Young had appeared to be in his usual health Sunday.  He was up and about the house. Early this morning he suffered a slight stroke.  His condition became rapidly worse.  He entered a comatose state, from which he did not recover before his death.
          For sixty-two years Mr. Young had been connected with business of banking in Shelbyville.  His record for years of service in the banks is believed to surpass that of any other man in the state.  The first charter of the First National Bank here was issued in 1865.  Mr. Young was with the bank when it was started and he held a position there at the time of his death. He entered the service of the bank as a bookkeeper.  Through work and effort and interest in his position, he rose step by step, being appointed to the position of cashier.  For fifty years he held this responsible post, during which time he saw the business of the bank expand many times.  When the condition of his health would not permit him to continue in the arduous duty of the office of cashier, Mr. Young retired, and was appointed as auditor of the bank.  Many residents of the county were attracted to the bank because of their liking for Mr. Young.  He was always ready with a smile, or a bit of helping advice when it was needed.  His good cheer and splendid spirit was widely known through the county.
          Mr. Young was also widely known as a Mason.  He was a member of all branches of the order and for many years had served as treasurer of all the branches.  He gave up that work several years ago, after a long record of service.  For many years he had been a member of the First Methodist Episcopal church here.  He was one of the leaders in the church, having served in several official positions, including that of superintendent of the Sunday school.
          Mr. Young was born in Shelby county June 22, 1838.  All of his life was spent in the county.  He attended the schools, and when a young man came to Shelbyville.  He was married, his wife having died years ago.
          Surviving are a son, E. H. D. Young, of Shelbyville, and two daughters, Mrs. M. G. Tindall, and  Miss Elizabeth Young, both of this city.  Mr. Young married  Hester Davis  November 20, 1860.
          Funeral arrangements will be announced Tuesday.  The Knights Templar will have charge of the services.  Funeral announcements will be made tomorrow.

AWFUL  ACCIDENT
----------
In Washington Township Monday Morning
The Boiler of the Portable Engine in
Smith and Young's Saw Mill Explodes
With Terrible Force and
Instantly Kills the Former and
Blows the Latter Thirty Feet
Mangling Him in the Most Horrible Manner
-Still Alive, But Probably Fatally Wounded
----------
          The saw-mill three-quarters of a mile west of Winchester Chapel and eight miles south of town, was the scene, between eight and nine o'clock a.m. Monday, of a horrible and fatal accident.  At the time above mentioned a heavy report startled the residents of that locality for a mile around, and as neighbors began to flock in, it was discovered that the boiler of the portable engine which furnished the motive power to the saw-mill had exploded with terrific force, and a closer investigation discovered the lifeless body of  George Young, one of the owners of the mill, lying in a pool of blood within about fifteen feet of the engine, which had turned over on its side, after having been blown some ten or twelve feet from where it had been standing when the explosion took place.  On the other side of the mill, which is but a rough shed open on all sides, the body of  Harry Smith, Young's partner, was found lying all in a heap and covered with blood and dirt, part of his clothes having been blown off.  The body of Young which was perfectly nude, every stitch of his clothes having been torn off by the force of the explosion, was picked up and conveyed to his home, about one hundred yards distance, while Smith, the other victim, who was still alive, although battered out of almost all semblance to humanity, was conveyed to the residence of  Mr. Henry Dunlap, about the same distance from the mill as Mr. Young's house.  Here the Democrat man found them, and from those who were there, learned something about the awful accident.  It seems that Young and Smith have been running the mill in partnership for about two years, using the engine, which as said above, is a portable one, to thresh wheat when not running the mill.  This morning both were on hand at work time, and started up as usual.  At the time when the explosion took place both men were standing right by the engine, which was standing just outside the mill, the hind wheels resting on the sill, and a man named  Johnson  was engaged in sawing slabs with a small saw a few feet to the north.  While so engaged the saw stuck fast in the wood, not having the velocity enough to cut through, and Mr. Young pulled the lever out to let on more steam, and in another instant he was launched into eternity.  His body was viewed by the reporter and presented a horrible spectacle.  The left leg was broken in two places, and bruised its whole length.  The right leg was broken square off at the ankle and the foot badly smashed, hung by a strip of skin.  Over the left eye was a hole which went clear through into the brain, and another cut on top of the skull, either of the two last named injuries being sufficient to have caused instant death.
          Mr. Young was thirty-eight years old, and leaves a wife and five children, whose sobs and cries made the scene heartrending.
          Leaving this place, a visit was paid to Mr. Smith, who, as said above, was lying at the residence of Mr. Dunlap, just east of the mill, and the appearance he presented was sickening.  His face was swollen out of all semblance to a human being and black an blue with congested blood, while his tossings to and fro on the bed in agony, revealed his back, which had been parboiled by the super-heated steam, and from which the skin rolled up on strips. It was enough to appall the stoniest heart, and it is feared that nothing but death can bring the suffering man relief.  Smith is 33 years of age, is unmarried and is a native of England.  Going back from Dunlap's to the mill for a closer view of the wrecked engine, it was found that a piece about eighteen inches long and six or eight inches wide had been torn out of the side of the fire-box, the force of the escaping steam pushing the engine, which weighs six thousand two hundred pounds, some fifteen feet from its original position and overturning it, breaking both axles, and tearing off the steam-gauge whistle, and all the other small parts of the machine on top of the boiler.  The smoke stack was blown some twenty feet and stood leaning up against the shed, while scattered all around were pieces of the blood-stained clothing torn from the body of Young, the same awful red stains showing up on the pieces of lumber lying around the engine.  As to the cause of the accident no one seemed to know, but the supposition is that the water was allowed to get low in the boiler, the general cause in such cases.  Coroner Capp was on the grounds and will investigate the matter thoroughly.

          DEATH  OF  MR. JOHN  YOUNG. - Again we have to chronicle the death of one of our oldest and most esteemed citizens.  Mr. Young came to this county some forty-four or forty five years ago and settled on a farm just east of the river where he died.  When he came, there were only three or four families living in what is now Shelby County.  The ground where now stands the beautiful city of Shelbyville, was then a wilderness, without a tree disturbed.  Mr. Young has witnessed the growth of Shelbyville from its very commencement.  He was a hale hearty old man till within a few months.  He died from the effects of a cancer with which he had been suffering three or four months.  His remains were followed to the grave, on Monday last by a large contingent of friends.
