F. H, 01S0HIN6ER DIES
SUDDENLY WHILE AT WORK c
The people of Elmore and vi-. cinity were greatly shocked Mon- r day afternoon to learn that Frank Dischinger, b7, had died suddenly c while driving a corn binder on j ^ his farm south of town. The hand of death was laid on him as he was sitting in the seat of the corn binder about tnree o'clock Monday afternoon.
He had been feeling as usual during the day and that afternoon he was operating the corn binder while his sons, Edward and Clar¬ ence, did the shocking. The last j time he passed the boys he stop- ; ped a few moments to talk and then continued on his way around the field. Failing to return after j the usual length of time the boys j started to walk through the corn ; and up to the end of the field! where they saw the horses stand-j ing. On arriving there theyj found their father still sitting on j the seat of the binder with the j lines clutched in his hands but his head was leaning to one side and his face was blue. They has¬ tily lifted him off the binder and placed him on the ground but life was already extinct.
Mr. Dischinger had been suffer¬ ing sight heart attacks for sotre time and so the end was not alto¬ gether unexpected. He had evi¬ dently made the turn at the end of the field and had stopped the horses before the attack came up¬ on him as only a slight movement of the machine would have thrown him to the ground, probably un¬ der the main wheel of the binder. Always an active man with wide interests, he passed away sudden¬ ly while in the midst of his work with his interests still unabated.
Frank H. Dischinger was born March 17, 1366, at Port Clinton, Ohio, the only child of Henry and Charlotte Dischinger. His par¬ ents moved to Elmore when their baby was only two weeks old and he has always lived here, either in town or on the farm just south of town, which was his homedur- ing his entire married life. A cousin raised by his parents was as a sister to him.
In early manhood he married Miss Minnie Kinsting, a sister of Henry Kinsting of this place. To this union two sons were born, Henry and Edward. The wife did not survive the birth of a third child, that also died.
On September 15, 1898, he was married to Miss Clara Netcher and one son was born to them, Clarence, who continued to make his home with them after his marriage. h
