ROCKLAND MAN SUCCUMBS TO
HIS INJURIES

IN HOSPITAL.
HE WAS FATALLY INJURED WHEN A TELEPHONE POLE UPON WHICH HE WAS
AT WORK
BROKE -- HE WAS WELL KNOWN AND RESPECTED.
Norman Pryor, 37, of Rockland, died in the Franklin Hospital
Wednesday evening at 6 o'clock from injuries sustained Sunday
by the
breaking of a telephone pole while he was repairing a wire that
led
into his home. He was thrown 15 feet and was injured
internally. The
young man was taken to the Hospital Tuesday in the hope that an
operation might
save his life, but he became so weak that the attending
surgeons were
unable to operate and he failed steadily to the end.

residents of Rockland and his untimely death has cast a pall of
gloom
over the entire community. The bereaved relatives have the
sincere
sympathy of all friends, both in Franklin, where Mr. Pryor was
well
known, and in Rockland. He was an active member of Rockland
Lodge,
Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and in his fraternal
relationship he
will be missed second only to that of the family circle.

four
children at home, Arthur, Helen, Agnes and Freda; by his
mother, Mrs.
John P. Pryor, also at home and the following brothers and
