It is with sad hearts that we heard of the terrible accident that happened to Robert Muncie, Wednesday morning. He was helping hull stumps with a machine when something gave way, striking Robert in such a manner as to throw him into the air with great force. Everything was done for him that loving hands could do, but he could not stand the shock and his life went to its Maker. Words can not express the sympathy that everyone feels for the relatives.

Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 31 Oct. 1918. Volga column.

Robert Frame Muncie was born at Carluke, Scotland, August 6, 1882, and died October 24, 1918, aged 36 years, two months and 18 days.

He was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. James Muncie, of Carluke, Scotland, both of whom are living in the homeland, and he is also survived by six sisters and five brothers: Mrs. Susie Thompson, of Highland township; Mrs. Bessie Gibb and the Misses Barbara, Nessie, Belle and Jeane of Carluke, Scotland; James, now in the United States, and William, John, Aleck and Archie, of Carluke, Scotland.

In February, 1913, he came to the United States and worked for two years with Richard Probert, then for one year with Allan Longmeier and his brother James, and since then he has made his home with his sister, Mrs. Susie Thompson.

His sudden and tragic passing away came with a saddening shock to us all, and our hearts go out with deepest sympathy to the relatives here who will miss him so much and to the parents and relatives far away across the sea.

Robert became a member of the Presbyterian church of Scotland at the age of 22. The age indicates that the act was the deliberate choice of his mature manhood. On coming to this country he transferred his membership, first to the Wadena church, and later to the Volga church.

He was enrolled in the last draft and stood ready to respond to the call of his adopted country when needed, but in the Providence of God he has been drafted for a higher service in a higher kingdom. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

This is our hope and comfort as we stand in the dread presence of death today, - that our departed brother is not dead but alive forevermore, for this is Christ's word of promise to all his followers: "He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live" and "He that liveth and believeth in Me shall never die."

A brief service was held at the Thompson home at 1:00 o'clock Saturday, and interment was at Wadena.
