The Family Circle Broken. The tragic death of Luie E. marks the first death in Mr. and Mrs. John Nuzman’s splendid family.

The tremendous voltage of the Havensville-Soldier-Circleville transmission line passed through the
body of Luie Nuzman of Soldier when he picked up a live wire near Soldier Monday night. Death resulted instantaneously. Mr. Nuzman was 37 years old and a son of John Nuzman …. It was discovered that the line had been wired around the switch at Circleville. This was likely done last spring when the line was being constructed and when Soldier was using lights before Circleville was
ready. No one seems to have remembered to have the wiring disconnected.
