+  Victor Man Sorely Afflicted - While Ambrose T. LANE was building a wire fence on his farm west of this village, last Friday afternoon, a piece of wire, which he was cutting, snapped into his face badly lacerating the right eye.  Mr. LANE caught a Rochester and Eastern car for Rochester, almost immediately, and went to a hospital for treatment.  so badly was the eye injured that it was found necessary to remove it that evening.  As Mr. LANE is suffering from what is thought to be a cataract on the left eye, the loss of the other is a doubly sore affliction.  The injured man is making a good recovery from the operation and expects to return to his home this week.

+  Sneak Thieves Raid Victor - Clothes Lines Robbed - House Entered

Victor, April 17. - On Monday night of last week, sneak thieves were active about the village and several rear porches were entered, together with cellars and cellar entrance ways.  Maple avenue and Covill and East streets were the places visited.  Garments were taken from the clothes lien at the residence of Rev. J. J. DONNELLY and the miscreants left traces of their calls at the homes of John BRADY, A. W. SMITH, Mrs. Julia ROSE, Wells PARMELEE and at the residences of Mrs. Delia REEVES and Mrs. Elizabeth GOULDRICK, articles were taken.  The tool house at the Locke factory was also entered on this same night, but nothing evidently taken.  Two strangers, who were seen about the streets here on the day before the houses were visited, were suspected of the work and officer John T. CONCANON and H. Elmer CORNFORD started out on their trail and they were followed to Pittsford and later to Twelve Corners, where the trail was lost.  No further clue has been obtained.  On the following night, Tuesday, the Lehigh Valley station at Tuttle's the first station east of here, was entered by taking a latch off a window in the waiting room.  About five dollars in change was taken and a pair of new shoes belonging to the agent at the depot, L. B. LAWRENCE.  No clue to the thieves has been found. 

Theodore WILSON, son of W. H. WILSON, who resides on C. Lewis SIMMOND'S farm, south of this village, was taken to Rochester last Wednesday afternoon by Detective MC DONALD of that city.  Young WILSON is about 21 years old and has not lived with his father for the past few year and only came back here several days ago.  He was married 3 years ago to a girl then employed at the home of E. R. REED in this town, who was an orphan from New York.  They lived in Rochester and it appears that in February last, some sort of a quarrel took place at their home in that city and the wife was shot in the head by her husband.  This story never reached the Rochester papers until last week, when the wife wanted the husband arrested.  The charge against him is assault with intent to kill, it is understood, and the outcome of the affair cannot as yet be determined and it will be watched with interest by the friends of the young man in this village.  

+  The MUMMEROW residence burned on Friday last.  This house is in the town of Farmington, east of the this village.

Many hearts were saddened by the sudden death, shortly before five o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, of Thomas J. Mead, a well known and popular resident of Victor.
For some little time Mr. Mead had not been feeling as well as usual, and he had recently consulted a physician about a severe  pain in his chest, but he had kept about his customary work as agent of the New York Central railroad.
On Tuesday afternoon, Charles A. Moore drove to the station to transact some business and entered into conversation with Mr. Mead. As Mr. Moore started to leave, Mr. Mead spoke of not feeling well and Mr. Moore offered to take him to his home on Maple avenue. The two talked over the probable causes of the illness, and suddenly Mr. Moore observed that his companion had become unconscious. He supported him in the carriage and drove as rapidly as possible to the Mead home, where help was summoned from nearby houses. Mr. Mead was lifted from the carriage and laid upon the lawn, and physicians were summoned.
Dr. William B. Clapper, who was the first to arrive, saw at a glance that Mr. Mead had expired. An autopsy showed that death was
caused by neuralgia of the heart.
Thomas J. Mead was born in the town of Victor on June 26th, 1860, a son of Bartholomew and Mary Mead.
Twenty-five years ago he entered the employ of the New York Central railroad at Rochester, where he remained for six years. Nineteen years ago, he was appointed station agent in Victor, and to the day of his death he performed his duties there in a most efficient manner, winning the confidence and esteem of the community.
Mr. Mead was married in November, 1883, to Nellie Malone of Victor, who survives him, together with four children, Mrs. Stephen
Barry of Canandaigua, and Frank, Florence and Harold, all living at the family home. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Ellen Keefe, of Victor.
He was a a prominent member of St. Patrick's church, of the Victor Branch of the C. M. B. A., Lodge No. 24, Rochester Elks, and the Knights of Columbus of Rochester.  Much sympathy is felt for the stricken family in their great bereavement.
Funeral services were held at St. Patrick's church, Thursday morning, and those assembled to pay a last tribute to this good citizen
and loved friend filled the church to the doors.

best wishes.

 OBITUARY     Cornelius E. Tobin
A man who had spent his entire life in Victor and whose energy had done much to promote the up-building and the prosperity of the
community passed from this sphere of activity when Cornelius E. Tobin breathed his last, early Sunday morning. The news of his death was a great shock to all who had known him, for death came suddenly, without the warning of any continued illness. 
Mr. Tobin had been out of town on Saturday and returned in the early morning. He stopped at the market of E. C. Bristol to make some purchases and while there engaged in conversation with friends. They observed that he did not appear to be in good health and it was suggested that it would be well to secure a conveyance in which to take him home. Before the vehicle was ready he had become unconscious. After the home was reached a physician was summoned and everything possible was done to revive him, but without avail, and he died without regaining consciousness, shortly after midnight. Heart failure was the cause of death. 
Cornelius E. Tobin was born in Victor, December 28th, 1863. He was the eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. James Tobin, who survive him, together with five sisters and two brothers, Nellie, the wife of Frank Granger, of Rochester, Hannah, the wife of William F. Keating, Katherine, the wife of Fred Keating, the Misses Mary and Julia Tobin, and James Jr., and Daniel Tobin, all of this town. About fourteen years ago Mr. Tobin married Miss Elizabeth Hinch, of this town, who survives with four children, Raymond, Vernon, Elizabeth and Edward. 
Mr. Tobin's business interests were many and varied and gave him an acquaintance throughout Western New York. He was in partnership with his brother, James Jr., under the firm name of Tobin Brothers, and they carried on an extensive produce business, dealt largely in horses, cattle and sheep, and operated several farms.  They had recently started a feed mill here. In all of these
enterprises they were remarkably successful and the elder brother contributed his full share to that success. The deceased was one of the organizers of the Victor Preserving Company, and a member of the board of directors until he sold his stock a short time ago. 
Mr. Tobin was shrewd but kindly in his dealings. His tremendous energy and business sagacity commanded the respect of his associates. He was a member of the Board of Education of Victor High School at the time of his death, and in recent years a member of the Village Board, being wise in counsel and progressive in thought in his relations with public affairs. In his home life Mr. Tobin was a tender and generous husband and father.   The deceased was a member of the Victor branch of the C. M. B. A. and Rochester Council of the Knights of Columbus. 
The funeral services were held on Wednesday morning, at 9:30 o'clock at the home on East Main street, and at 10 o'clock at St.
Patrick's church. A Requiem Mass was said by Rev. John J. Donnelly assisted by the church choir with Edward J. Ryan as soloist. The latter rendered two solos at the close of the service. The funeral was one of the largest ever held here and the church was filled, many being unable to gain entrance. 
The members of the C. M. B. A., with a delegation from the Knights of Columbus of Rochester marched as an escort to the procession and attended the funeral in body. Many from surrounding towns were in attendance upon the services. The village places of business were all closed during the services. 
A profusion of beautiful flowers was sent by sorrowing relatives and friends, and in the procession was a carriage completely
filled with them. A beautiful floral tribute was sent by the businessmen of the town, this being in the form of a large wreath of roses on a high standard, and testifying to the important place which Mr. Tobin had occupied in the business of the town, and of the loss which the business men feel in his death.
 The Knights of Columbus sent a beautiful wreath, and the C. M. B. A. a huge bunch of American Beauty roses. The members of the board of education and faculty of the High School sent a tribute of calla lilies and sweet peas. Beautiful wreaths were sent by the firm of L. G. Loomis and Son, the Bacon family of Canandaigua, Mr. and Mrs. John Brady and Mr. and Mrs. Keating, Mrs. Honore McCarthy, of Rochester, sent as a loving tribute to the family a Mass card, signed by Rev. John Sullivan, of Corpus Christi church, Rochester. Among the other floral offerings were beautiful tributes sent by Mr. and Mrs. Shaw, of Irondequoit, Mr.
and Mrs. Hutchinson, of Pittsford, Herman Lepedia, Mr. and Mrs. McGibbon, the Misses Minnie and Catherine Burke, Mrs. Erwin and family, Mr. and Mrs. Perrez, all of Rochester, W. H. and M. L. Spencer, of Canandaigua, William Dailor, Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Ellis, Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Hathaway, Homer E.

Keefe - Guinan  -  There was an attractive wedding on Wednesday afternoon, June 19th, in St. Patrick's church, when Miss Gertrude B. Guinan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Guinan, of Mertensia and Maurice Emmett Keefe, son of Mrs. Ellen Keefe and the late Maurice Keefe, were united in marriage. Rev. J. J. Donnelly performed the ceremony at 2:30 o'clock.
 The wedding was a quiet one, owing to the recent death of an aunt and uncle of the bride. The ceremony was witnessed by many
relatives of the young couple, and a few near friends, the guests coming from Rochester, Fairport, Lima and Webster. Miss Anna Ryan played the bridal march. 
Frank Guinan, brother of the bride, and John Keefe, brother of the groom, officiated as ushers. The couple was unattended. The bride was becomingly gowned in tan messaline, and wore a hat to match. The altar was prettily decorated with daisies and other white blossoms and ferns.
 After the ceremony, the bride and groom went to the home of the bride, and shortly left on a westbound New York Central train from Mertensia, for a short wedding journey. The bride's going away dress was a tailored suit of navy blue, with a hat to correspond. The bridal couple were met at the station here by a party of friends, who to the former's surprise boarded the train and accompanied them to Rochester. 
Both the bride and groom are well known in this vicinity, where they have many friends, who extend congratulations and all good
wishes. The bride received some handsome gifts, including many pieces of household furniture, silver and money. They will reside here, where the groom is a successful young farmer.

CARD OF THANKS - Through the columns of the Herald, I wish to thank the friends and neighbors whose sympathy and aid were so helpful in the hour of my bereavement.   JOHN BUNCE.
