Mr. Nielsen’s death was caused by an accidental fall from a 125 foot water tower in Rosehill Cemetery, Chicago, where he was employed as a painter. Part of the steel ladder upon which he was working gave way, and he fel to the ground, a distance of about 80 feet. He is survived by his wife and two children, and his father, Jorgen Nielsen.
Mr. Nielsen had been called to Withee only last week to attend the funeral of his mother, and had returned to his work at Chicago, starting Monday morning.

The bereaved relatives have the heartfelt sympathy of a great many friends in their time of sorrow.
