Antti Tuominen, 55, Gorham Township farmer,
was killed instantly at 7:30 this morning when a truck in which he was a passenger failed to go up a steep hill near the Gorham School on Kivikoski Road, about
sixteen miles from the city, skidded backward on the road made icy by the melting of recent snows, and yoppled over a ten foot embankment. The truck turned over
to the right once and came to rest right side up in a small creek thirty feet below the roadway. Tuominen was killed when the truck rolled over on him when he
attempted to get out of the cab through the door on the right hand side. Waino Johnson, 138 Secord Street, owner and driver of the truck, escaped injury by
leaping from the door on the left side. The two men were driving toward Port Arthur with a load of pulpwood being deliverd for Tuominen to the Provincial Paper
Mill. As the truck turned over the pulpwood was thrown to the side of the road as though it had been piled there. The truck was only slightly damaged and the
opinion expressed that Tuominen might have escaped had he remained in the cab as it rolled down the hill after dropping ten feet from the roadway. Coroner Dr.
Charles Powell investigated the accident in company with Provincial Constable Harvey Blair and decided an inquest was not necessary. Mr. Tuominen was born in
Finland and had been farming in this district for twenty-three years. He is survived by his wife, two sons, five daughters and six grandchildren. Sons are
Aarne of Pike Lake and Olovi, at home. Daughters are Alli, Mrs. Fred Maki, 63 Algonquin Avenue, Port Arthur; Agda, Mrs. Fred Korhonen, Gorham; Aini, Mrs.
Fred Maunu, Pike Lake; Lissa, at home; and Aune, Mrs. W. Kuusisto, Gorham.

The funeral of the late Mrs. Turk was held from the
Union Church on Sunday afternoon. Rev. Mr. Lewis conducted the service, who spoke comforting words to the bereaved. The late Mrs. Turk was born in London, England,
shortly moving with her family to France, returning after the Franco-Prussian War broke out and sailing for Canada in a sailing vessel, when she was but 8 years of
age, settling at Apsley, Peterboro County where she lived and married the late Isaac Turk; four children blessed their union. In 1900 the Turk's together with the
Couch's, Dr. Caldwell and some more decided to come to New Ontario. They located in Gillies township and made themselves homes worthy of mention, despite the
hardships with which these staunch pioneers had to contend, having to drive to the cities with their produce. Six years ago Mr. Turk passed on, and Mrs. Turk
with her son Bruce, still carried on the farm. On Saturday May 30, Mrs Turk was suddenly taken ill with appendicitis, a very acute attack and although everything
was done to ease her suffering, she passed away in St. Joseph's Hospital at 7:30 a.m. on Friday morning. Much regret is felt in the loss of a kind friend, a good
neighbor and a loving mother. The pallbearers were old friends: G.E. Hymers, M. Witenshaw, J. McLaren, A.N. Johnston, A. Parker and Jas. Winters. Mrs. Jordan sang
"Sometimes We'll Understand." Interment took place in Riverview Cemetery, Hymers.
