E. M. Stevenson, of St. Paul, was summoned to this place by the illness of his wife's father, C. H. Norman, who was seriously injured in a runaway accident. Mr. Norman had business which called him to East Pine last Thursday and when returning home that evening the hold-back straps on the harness broke, allowing the buggy to run against the horse and causing him to run away. On reaching the foot of the hill Mr. Norman was thrown out. He was unconscious when found and has remained in that condition until the present time. It is a very sad occurrence, especially so to the wife and daughter, who are both in every poor health.

Norman – At the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. Mosier, in Woodstock, Wis., at 2:30 P.M., June 13, 1910, Mr. Caleb H. Norman, aged 66 years and 26 days.
The deceased was born May 17, 1844, at Oro, Prov. Ontario, Canada, and came to Watertown, Wis., with his parents in the year 1850. In 1855 his parents moved to Henrietta, Wis., where he lived until Jan., 1865, when he enlisted in the U. S. Army, where he served his country as a musician until the close of the war. After the war he married Miss Angelina Brouhard, at Reedsburg, Wis., Nov. 10, 1867. To this union were born four daughters, the oldest Nettie, dying about twenty-one years ago; the others, viz. Mrs. E. M. Stevenson, of Fargo, N. Dak.; Mrs. J. Mosier, or Woodstock, Wis.; and Mrs. P. G. Lasche, of Ithaca, Wis.; together with the faithful wife, are left to mourn the loss of an affectionate husband and father, whose sudden death had brought sadness and gloom into their once happy home. The sad accident, which occurred June 9th, by a runaway team he was driving down a steep hill, was fatal, and all efforts for his relief were futile. The enemy, death claimed its victim; and the loss of one of our most valued citizens is keenly felt by the entire community. While we mourn his loss, we remember his kindly deeds, and mourn not as those without hope. Mr. Norman long ago confessed his need of a Saviour, met the requirements for remission of sins, and we expect to meet Him in the resurrection, then to be united and live again in a sinless world, where we will never say goodby.
Words of comfort were spoken by the undersigned from Psa. 90 : 5, 6. – J. C. Royer

5 You sweep them away as with a flood; they are like a dream,
like grass that is renewed in the morning:
6 in the morning it flourishes and is renewed;
in the evening it fades and withers.
