      F.N. Sherfick, 64 years old, a farmer from near Paonia, died from the effects of wounds received when he was gored by a bull in the corral back of his home. Sherfick's wife played a heroic part in the incident, beating off the enraged animal with a club in a vain effort to save her husband's life. The bull attacked Sherfick, according to his wife's story, when he went into the corral to do some work. He attempted to jump over the fence, but was knocked down.
