Mr. Johnson & Lewis, of Elk Falls, are building a good grist and saw mill, on Mr. Mann’s farm on Grouse Creek. Work on the dam has begun. It is estimated the cost of the mill and dam will reach $16,000. By cutting across a bend in the creek and building a twelve foot dam, he gets a fall of nineteen feet and eight inches.

RUNAWAY. An accident of a serious nature occurred on Thursday morning inst., to a son of Mr. Abraham Mann, of Grouse Creek. It would appear that the boy was engaged in hitching up a team of mules, when they became scared, and ran away. The front wheels of the wagon to which they were attached passed over the boy’s chest, severely injuring him. At last accounts he was progressing favorably.
Winfield Courier, March 7, 1878.
We learn the particulars of a serious accident which happened to a son of Mr. Mann, an old settler on Grouse Creek. He and his son were raking up corn-stalks, when the team became frightened and ran away, throwing the boy violently to the ground, the wheel passing over his breast. His recovery is considered doubtful.
