Just before reaching what is known as May's crossing Mr. Look was talking with a farmer on the east side of the track and, as the train was coming at a very high rate of speed, and the engine quite still, and probably did not blow for that crossing, but that is not certain, Mr. Look failed to observe the train. The horse was shocked so it lived but a few minutes, but Mr. Look was instantly killed. The train was going so fast that it did not stop until it reached the bridge. It then backed up and took the remains to the Pulaski station and from there they were taken to Enos & Morton's undertaking rooms. Mr. Look was born in the town of Amboy, March 4, 1853.

Look of this place is left to mourn his less. About thirty years ago he purchased the farm now owned by Eugene Filkins about one mile east of Pulaski village, which he successfully filled until health failed him. He sold it and purchased a smaller one adjoining it where he lived at the time of his death although he had been a constant sufferer for several years he was never known to murmur or complain. Some twenty years ago he united with the Methodist church at Pulaski, and being in poor health he was not an active member, yet his kind and gentle spirit and patient ways and trust in the heavenly father was satisfactory to his friends. His funeral was held from his late residence; the Rev. Webster of the M.E. church officiated and preached a very effective sermon from Numbers II chapter, 10 verse. Some very beautiful flowers were furnished by friends. Although a kind and thoughtful neighbor, a loving husband and an indulgent father has passed away we fully believe that what is their loss is his gain.

One by one we are passing away. We are stricken down like the stars in the sky. The kind and patient ways of the deceased has twined around the hearts of her dear home circle so closely that each fiber seems a part of their own being. None knew her but to love her, and in her death we feel that a gem has been dropped from our circle that cannot be replaced.
