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 but of no avail.

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 two of her brothers are dangerously sick. We trust that providence will keep her in her deep sorrow, for indeed this is one of life's great trials and she certainly has the sympathy of all who know her.
