      Mrs. Caroline Ernst, aged 91, and nearly blind, met death accidently some time Monday when she fell into a creek on her son's, Dan Ernst, place, with whom she made her home. The aged woman was entirely blind in one eye and nearly so in the other. She with her son resided on a farm 12 mile northeast of Bloomfield. On Monday, the son was absent from home, plastering for a neighbor, and did not return home until evening. On missing his mother, he began to search for her and found her in the creek. The aged woman had descended quite a steep bluff and while walking along the bank of the stream stepped off into the water where the bank dropped off suddenly.

      Coroner Heady was called and the Coroner's Jury rendered the verdict that death came from accidental drowning.
