This community has again been most forcefully reminded of the uncertainty of life, this time by accident. Monday about noon while Mrs. Jorgine Rustad was returning from a trip to Mona where she had often gone on business and pleasure, she was struck at the grade crossing by a way-freight on the Illinois Central and instantly killed.

The deceased was born in Lellahammer (sic), Faaberg, Norway; April 27, 1841. In 1862 she was united in marriage to Christian Rustad and immigrated to America the same year. The family settled on the old homestead near Mona where she made her home until her death. Her husband died in 1881. She is survived by one daughter Daisy Dorrow of Osage and R. C. Rustad of this vicinity, also four sisters and two brothers. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon by Rev. A. E. Moe and interment was made in Pleasant Prairie cemetery
