Bio: Cornick, Will--blackest eyes 2-1880

Will Cornick, of Humbird, who has been trying his hand in the woods for a few weeks past, was brought to town last Saturday in a badly damaged condition, having been thrown from a load of logs on Friday morning, narrowly escaping death and coming out with the blackest pair of eyes that have been exhibited in this place for some time, and many other bruises, that render him unit for service, The accident was caused by the load he was driving coming in contact with a tree standing at the side of the road. He was thrown under the horses feet and in front of the sled. And had the team been able to start the load, the accident which is now treated with levity by Will’s friends would undoubtedly have been a fatal one as he was unconscious at the time he was picked up by a passing team and must have been crushed to death had the sled proceeded in its course.
