DROWNED - Yesterday afternoon about four o'clock, Hiram
Calhoun was drowned
in Canandaigua Lake some forty or fifty rods from the end of the pier
at this place. He lived up the lake about ten miles
and had brought down a scow load of wood. After unloading this
his son and William Sanford got the scow out into the lake to
go back home. Mr. Calhoun in attempting to adjust some of the rigging
fell overboard, the scow passing directly over him. He
struggled first to gain the boat and a plank was thrown out, but he was
unable to reach either as the high wind drove them away from
him. His situation now became known on shore, when John Pinkerton and
William Mack went out in a skiff and brought him in to O. W. Taylor's.
Dr. J. T. Smith was called and every exertion made to resuscitate him

Chapinville, N. Y. - The sad news reached us last Saturday morning
from Shortsville announcing the death of Ira M. Callister, a
former resident of this place. He lived most of his life among us and
was a young man who was liked by all who knew him. He suffered a long
illness which came upon him a few years ago. We have long felt that Ira
would soon leave us and that death would be his gain. We believed him a
christian man. For the last few days he lived he expressed a desire to
go home and join his little daughter who died but a few months ago. He
leaves a wife and one child to mourn his loss. His mother came from a
bed of sickness to see him a few days before his death. His parents and
his family have the sympathy of all in their affliction. The deceased
was in his 33d year. The funeral was held in the Presbyterian church at
Shortsville on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. Since writing the above, Mrs.
William Callister, mother of the deceased has received the news that
her father, E. Munson, of Tyre, N. Y., is not expected to live and that

for indeed this is one of life's great trials and she certainly has the
of all who know her.
