The whole neighborhood was shocked yesterday by the sudden and unexpected death of our esteemed neighbor Herman E. Sether of Lynn avenue. Mr. Sether had been in his usual good health and had helped his two sons, Hans and Ole to do some killing and preparing the winter meat. Going to the house to wash his hands he fell just at the doorway. Physicians were summoned but it was found that his death was instantaneous.

Mr. Sether had lived in Moscow for quite a number of years and having his farm a few miles beyond the city limits. He was a busy man, kind of heart and greatly esteemed. His "walk and conversation were upright."

Mr. Sether was 68 years of age. His widow and seven children survive him, with many other relatives and a host of friends. The children are Mrs. John Foss, Mrs. Robt. Otness, Mrs. O.W. Nelson, Hans Sether, Ole Sether, of Moscow; Mrs. A.H. Bjorklund of Winchester, and Mrs. Geo. H. Lee of Jackson, Minn.

Mr. Sether was a loyal member of the Norwegian Lutheran church, and the funeral will be conducted by Rev. M.A. Hall from the Norwegian Lutheran church on Third street Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. [November 17].
