From the Gary, Ind., Evening Post, of the 15th July, we glean the following particulars respecting the sad death of John Coleman, son of Mrs. Wm. Anderson, Peel Street:- "John Coleman, an engineer in the employ of the Indiana Steel Company, met instant death last night by an electric shock while at work in the steel plant. Mr. Coleman was repairing some broken machinery shortly after eleven o'clock when the accident occurred. In some manner his arm came in contact with a live wire, and the shock passing through his body caused instant death.
The tragedy is made more pathetic by the fact that the deceased leaves a young wife who was nearly distracted over the terrible news, this morning when as customary she prepared to meet her husband on his return from work. The couple was exceptionally devoted, their every thought being of each other.
Mr. and Mrs. Coleman have been here only a few months, having from here from Indiana Harbor. Mrs. Coleman was formerly Miss Gertrude Hoslich, of Cleveland, Ohio, and the young couple came to the Calumet district shortly after their marriage a year and a half ago. Mr. Coleman's former home is Acton, Ontario, where his mother, Mrs. Wm. Anderson, now resides. It is probable the remains will be taken to Cleveland for interment.
