In 1914, Herman Sixbey, a well known Mayville merchant and prominent G. A. R. man, suffered a severe fall while waiting on a customer in his store at Mayville shortly before noon this day. He had stepped upon a chair to get some article down from a high shelf, when he slipped and fell striking on his side on a corner of the counter. The fall rendered him unconscious.

Mr. Sixbey's friends were greatly alarmed over his injury.
