    Another life was sacrificed at the Combined Locks Paper company's mill early Monday morning when Edward Voecks, 18 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Voecks, was instantly killed while employed on the re-winder of No. 3 paper machine.

    Young Voecks was trying to start the paper to winding again when his hand caught between the reels and before the machine could be shut down he was drawn into the machine and his head forced backward so far that his neck was broken causing instant death.

    Frank Noie, machine tender on the same machine witnessed the terrible accident and tried to rescue the doomed man from his horrible death. Mr. Noie caught him around just under the arms and tried to hold him back, but the pull of the running machinery having caught both hands was too strong a resistance to overcome and was obliged to see his associate workman drawn to his death by the irresistible force exerted by the swift revolving rolls between which his whole body was drawn. The reels were both nearly filled with the loosely wound paper which condition helped to protect his body from being crushed to a pulp.

    One of the mill hands was dispatched immediately for the home of his parents to break the sad news and ascertain what disposition was to be made of the body. Undertaker Jansky took charge of the remains and removed the body.

    Mr. Voecks, the father, at once telegraphed his married daughters residing at Stevens Point, Mrs. Chas. Hass and Mrs. Albert Lang, also his daughter, Miss Sadie Voecks who is there spending the winter.

    It was a sad family reunion Monday evening when they arrived at the stricken home from which the youngest member had been so suddenly taken in the bloom of life, while trying to help maintain the family circle.

    Edward Voecks was born in Kaukauna and lived here all his life. About eight months ago he went to work for the Combined Locks Paper company as a helper to learn the art of paper making and his uniform and faithful work and abounding good nature and willingness to work earned him the esteem of his companions and the good will of his employers.
    Surviving are his parents Mr. and Mrs. Herman Voecks, old residents of Kaukauna, his sisters, Mrs. Laura Lang and Mrs. Matilda Hass of Stevens Point, Miss Sadie Voecks at home, and William Voecks, his brother, also of this city.
