Mrs. Harry Cobleigh of Carlyle, Passes Away After a Short Illness
- - - - -
The Advance is this week called ed upon to chronicle a particularly sad event in the death of Mrs. Harry Cobleigh of Carlyle, which took place at the Beach hospital, Thursday morning, January 6, at 7:55 o’clock.
On Monday, December 27, Mrs. Cobleigh gave birth to a fine baby girl, but a few days latter was attached by Peritonitis. She was at once brought to the hospital at Beach and everything done known to medical science to save life, but all proved useless and yesterday morning she passed to that great unknown from which no traveler returns. The anxious husband and relatives who sat tireless at her bedside, hoping almost against hope, have indeed the sympathy of the community.
Mr. Cobleigh came to the Golden Valley three years ago this fall and took a claim about five miles north of Carlyle, his wife joining him a years later. During her stay here she taught two terms at the Burke school house in the Lame Steer district and by her many acts of kindness and thoughtfulness of others had won for herself a place in the hearts of her neighbors and acquaintances seldom occupied in so short a time. She was a member of the Catholic church and was ever ready to assist in any movement for the up building of the community or to help a neighbor. Truly the world is better for her having lived and her untimely death will cause many to mourn.
She leaves besides her husband and daughter, a mother. Mrs. C. Murray of Hammond, Minn., came to Beach who Tuesday and was with her daughter at death, three brothers and six sisters, only one of whom are located in this part of the country, Mrs. H. C. Larsen of the Lame Steer district. To these sorrowing relatives is extended heartfelt sympathy.
Funeral services will be held Monday morning at 10:30 from the Catholic church in this city and interment will be made in the Beach cemetery.
“Verily in the midst of life there is death.”

The Blue Earth County Enterprise, published at Mapleton, Minn., gives the following account of the wedding of two young people now located at Beach, says:
“At the spacious home of Mr. and Mrs. John Schweitzer, our genial druggist, on Wednesday afternoon last, occurred the marriage of their son, Theodore, and Miss Clara Nelson, of Lemon South Dakota. It was strictly a home wedding, the guests being limited almost entirely to the immediate relatives of the contracting parties. It was, however, a very pretty wedding. The parlors were tastily decorated with roses and smilax while in the dining room the color scheme was green and white.
At three o’clock while Mrs. Ed Ulrich, a sister of the groom, played the wedding march, Mr. Schweitzer accompanied by Mr. James Cody, of Northfield Minnesota, took their places under the festoons of roses and smilax where they met the bride and her maid, Miss Leona Bond, also of Lemon, South Dakota. The ladies were preceded by little Louise Schweitzer, a niece of the groom, who carried the ring concealed in the heart of a beautiful white rose. Father Stack, pastor of the local Catholic church, assisted the young couple in plighting their vows and spoke the impressive and solemn words which proclaimed them mad and wife, after which the guests extended them sincere and hearty congratulations. Following the ceremony a most bountiful and delicious four course dinner was served. The bride was dressed in a beautiful creation of white satin mescaline with pearl and gold trimmings and carried a bouquet of pink La France roses. Her maid of honor wore a gown of light blue silk with Persian trimmings and carried a bouquet of white carnations.
While Miss Nelson is a stranger in this vicinity, she is of very pleasing appearance and during her short stay here can count all those she met among her friends. She has been the competent and efficient bookkeeper and stenographer in the First National bank at Lemmon, South Dakota, which position she has just resigned. That she is a young woman of thrift and push is evident from the fact that she went to Dakota and acquired on of that fair state’s claims. The four young people, she and her husband, Miss Bond and Mr. Cody, all having claims in the same vicinity.
Theodore Schweitzer is the second son of Mr. and Mrs. John Schweitzer, a young man of excellent business judgment and who has been very successful in his business pursuits.

To this union two children were born, James R. of Beach, N.D., and Minnie B. Stone of this place. In 1871 he left his native state and settled on a farm near Montezuma, where he had lived till growing infirmities made it wise to dispose of his farm and settle in Montezuma.
He was one of the “Boys in Blue,” being enrolled in Company H, 171st Ohio.
His end was peaceful and painless, at sunrise his soul took its flight. His departure is mourned by his companion of many years, a son and daughter, and a host of sorrowing friends who will miss his cheerful greeting and hearty handshake. - Poweshiek County (Ia.) Palladium

A Healthy Black Haired Baby
- - - - -
Left to the Tender Care of a Bachelor - No Trace of Who Are its Parents
- - - - -
Last Monday morning about 4 o’clock Agaard Carlson, a bachelor who lives some fourteen miles northeast of Beach, heard his dog making considerable noise, but dropped off to sleep and did not waken again until nearly 7 o'clock. Immediately after getting up he was attached to the door by the cries of a baby and upon investigation found a nice black haired baby girl on his doorstep, without other raiment than the shawl or blanket in which it was wrapped up. He lost no time in procuring the assistance of a lady of the neighborhood, who gave it every attention.
It is the opinion of those who saw it that the little Miss was not over twenty-four hours of age when discovered by Mr. Carlson: Mr. and Mrs. George Richardson heard of the affair and went out to Carlson's and took the baby home with the intention of adopting it as their own. It will be remembered that Mr. and Mrs. Richardson lost their only child, a little girl, not long ago and the vacant place in their home they hope to fill by this little one. The baby is strong and healthy in appearance and is reported to be doing nicely.
So far as can be learned no trace of the inhuman parents has been found.

In the early evening he told his wife that he was not feeling as well as usual and went to bed.

About 11 o'clock he made a peculiar noise, raised his hands and expired without saying a word or regaining consciousness.

Mrs. W. E. Kugel Went Into the Last, Long Sleep Wednesday Morning
- - - - -
The Advance is called upon this week to chronicle a particulary sad death, that of Mrs. W. E. Kugel, which took place Wednesday morning at 6:35, of typhoid fever.
Miss Elizabeth Kaminietz was married to W. E. Kugel on March 9 last, at Napolean, N.D., and came to Beach only four short months ago a bride. The panorama of the future looked bright and with cheerful hearts and willing hands these young people started to prepare for the time when a competency should have been layed away as a result of faithful labor and prudent expenditure and home and each others company would be their joy in declining years. But it was not to be. Five weeks ago last Sunday she was forced to take to her bed, suffering from typhoid fever and although everything human skill could suggest was done to battle with the disease, yet it proved unavailing and death claimed her Wednesday morning.
Mrs. Kugel was 22 years of age at time of death and her untimely taking away is doubly sad. The bereaved husband has been called upon to bury both his father and mother and now, on the very threshold of his wedded life, he places the mortal remains of his wife beside the final resting place of his parents. Mrs. Kugel was one of seven children and her death is the first in the family. During the latter part of her illness her mother was a constant attendant at her bedside and was with her when the final summons came. The surviving relatives have the sincere sympathy of the people of this community in their heavy and sad bereavement. The body was shipped to Napolean for interment.
Since coming to Beach Mr. Kugel has occupied a position in J. J. Bartley's general store and he and his wife made their home with them. May her ashes rest in peace.

J. W. Now Died Monday, July 4, After an Illiness of Several Months
- - - - -
While not unexpected, yet the news that J. W. Snow had died at his farm north of town, Monday, July 4, at about 10 o'clock in the forenoon, was a shock to his many friends in this part of the country.
Mr. Snow came to Beach something like two years ago from Lacrosse, Wis., and purchased the Doyle farm north of town. A short time afterwards he brought him family here and occupied the place, but much of his time was devoted to his profession as a veterinary surgeon
H was a promoter and a tireless worker for the organization of the Interstate Fair Association of Billings County and was much interested in its success. He was a thorough believer in the future of this country and did everything in his power to advance the interest of the community in which he lived and of Beach. For some time after coming her he improved in health, but he worked hard at his profession and last fall was obliged to go east to secure rest and look after some business matters. While absent he suffered two very severe attacks of sickness and had failed a great deal before he returned. Even after it was impossible for him to longer make the trip to town he would insist on going about the farm, to the barn and was continually looking after something. He made a most heroic fight for life and the end was indeed a relief from suffering.
His remains were taken to Onalaska, Wis., for interment and were accompanied by relatives. He was 73 years of age at the time of death and is survived by his wife and several children, two sons and a daughter living near his farm.
Mr. Snow was a man among men and his man acquaintances in the Golden Valley as well as in Wisconsin will indeed mourn with his bereaved wife and children for the loss of a husband, father and a friend.

Killed by Stock Train
- - - - -
Body Carried Four Miles Before Train Crew Learn of Accident
- - - - -
L. W. Berge met a sudden and violent death yesterday about noon at Sentinel Butte. He was expecting his son with a car load of cattle and had gone down to the depot to ascertain if something definite could be learned about it. He attempted to cross the tracks at the depot and was struck by a stock train going east. It is reported that the train was going at the rate of about forty miles an hour. The pilot of the engine struck him and he was thrown into the air several feet, coming down in such a way as to land on the pilot close up to the boiler. In this position he was carried to the next station, where the train went on to the siding for the through passenger. It was at this time that some one of the crew found the body and it was their first knowledge of the fact that they had killed someone. A livery rig from Sentinel Butte brought the remains back home.
In the way he attempted to cross the track his view of an approaching train from the west would be obstructed and whether or not he was aware of this fact will never be known. However, when some distance from the tracks he started to run and as he approached the danger a warning was shouted to him by Eddie Gilbert, but he evidently did not hear it and the extra haste cost him his life
The death is particularly sad. Mr. and Mrs. Berge came to Sentinel Butte from Black River Falls, Wis., where he was a respected citizen, only a few weeks ago, for the purpose of visiting their daughter, Mrs. Albert F. Bailey. They like the country very much and had decided to make Sentinel Butte their home. To this end he had purchased a lot and had dug the cellar over which their future home was to be erected.
He has many acquaintances here among the people of Wisconsin, all of whom speak of him as an upright man and a good citizen. He was also an old veteran. A wife, daughter and two sons survive him.

A Cold Blooded Murder
- - - - -
A cold blooded murder occurred at Wibaux last Saturday. A cowboy came to town and hired a saddle horse from on of the liverymen. About noon he tied the animal to a post after riding him all morning. The liveryman thinking he was probably through with the horse sent a boy, who was working in the barn after him, with instructions that he put him in the barn, and give him feed and water. The cowboy saw the lad when he was taking the horse to the barn, and immediately followed him to the stable, where he entered by the door and shot the boy dead on the spot, without any provocation whatever.
A blacksmith who was there tried to arrest him, but was driven back with a six-shooter. He then took the horse and started to make his getaway. The arm of justice was too fast for him, however, and just as he was leaving the deputy sheriff appeared on the scene. He succeeded in arresting the fellow after several short had been exchanged between them. The fellow fell off the horse claiming to be shot, but no wound could be found.
The citizens were for lynching him, but while talking it over the sheriff got his prisoner out of town.

Discouraged Over Financial Troubles Chas. Voller Ends His Life With Strychnine
- - - - -
Wednesday morning the citizens of Beach were surprised to hear that Chas. Voller had committed suicide in his slaughter house west of the city. In the morning he arose and had his breakfast as usual, after which he attended to his meat market until about 10:00 o'clock when he hitched up his horse and started up town. He went into tone of the local drug stores and purchased a half ounce of strychnine. As he was passing the City Bakery he stopped and bought three bottle of pop. The clerk told him that it was not necessary to pay for the bottles if he would return them when empty. He seemed anxious to pay for them, however, saying that he might forget the bottles when he returned. About 11:00 o'clock people who live in the vicinity of his slaughter house heard his agonizing cries for help and saw him run in the direction of his wagon. John Anderson was the first to arrive, and as he picked Mr. Voller from the ground, where he had fallen, he died in his arms. Not knowing the cause of the trouble. Mr. Anderson, hurried the body to the office of Dr. Stough, but nothing could be done to bring back the life that had flown.
Deceased came to Beach with his family from Bowbells, N.D., about a year ago and started in the butcher business. Since that time he has apparently enjoyed a satisfactory business from all outward appearances. Nevertheless, he worried considerably over his financial affairs, and, it is thought, that is what deranged his mind.
During his life Mr. Voller was looked upon as an honest and upright man, a kind neighbor, and in all, a very desirable citizen.
Besides his wife, deceased leaves to mourn the loss of a loving husband and kind father, three small girls, who have the sympathy of all in their deep sorrow.

Mrs. Joseph Denoyer Succumbs to a Hemorrhage Sunday Morning
- - - - -
A cloud of sorrow enveloped the home of Mr. Joseph Denoyer Sunday morning about 2:15 o'clock, when the Almighty God called to her heavenly home, the wife and mother, at the early age of 32 years. For some time Mrs. Denoyer had been ailing, but few thought but wheat she would rally from her sickness and regain her former health. Such, however, was not to be. About 12:00 o'clock Saturday night she was taken with a hemorrhage, and in a little more than two hours life was extinct.
A year ago last February deceased moved to Beach, with her husband and since that time, has endeared herself to many by her kind and pleasant disposition. She was a devote member of the Roman Catholic church, and never was the road too long or the night too dark, to go to the relief of a wanting neighbor.
Much sympathy is extended to Mr. Denoyer at this time. In the loss of his helpmate he is called upon to take the place of both father and mother to three small boys, the two oldest being only eleven years of age, and the youngest nine.
Besides her husband and three children deceased leaves to mourn her loss an aged father and mother who at present reside at Crosby, N.D.
The Advance extends its heart-felt sympathy to Mr. Denoyer and his three sons, in this, their greatest bereavement.
The remains were interred in the R. C. cemetery at Devils Lake, yesterday.

Sunday afternoon about five o'clock the infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Sheppard, passed peacefully from this world to her Father in Heaven. She was a bright little girl, and also the firstborn. Sympathy is weak in sorrow of this kind, as only the mother and father can realize the real sting of such a great loss. The little pet was just two weeks old, and up to the time of her death was apparently healthy. It was thought she was attached with heart trouble. Services were held Monday in the Congregational church, Rev. Good officiating. The remains were interred in the Beach cemetery.

A Very petty wedding occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. V. Knox on Wednesday, when the daughter of Mrs. Knox, Miss Leora Hutchins, was united by marriage to Rev. Alexander Douglas, a minister of the Congregational church. The ceremony was performed just at the noon hour by Rev. Chas. M. Good, pastor of the Beach Congregational church. While Mr. Carl Bratton played the wedding march, Lohengrin, the bride and groom marched to the altar. The bride was dressed in cadet blue with trimmings of Persian lace and carried bride's roses. She was attended by her cousin, Miss Mabelle Monet, who acted as bridesmaid and was dressed in pink silk voile. Mr. Carl Bratton acted as best mad. After the ceremony the whole company in attendance partook of the bounteous feast usually associated with such happy occasions.
In the evening they took the train for a visit in the east and on their return will probably take up some pastorate in the eastern part of the state. Rev. Douglas is a graduate of Auburn Seminary, Rochester, N.Y., and one of the pioneers of the Golden Valley. He located on a claim east of Beach about seven years ago, when there were but few people in the community, and it was thorough his efforts, perhaps more than any one else, that the work of the church was successfully started. Recently, he has been laboring along with line of the Milwaukee in Hettinger county, making his home at Mott.
Miss Hutchins was one of the most popular and virtuous young ladies in this city, and all who knew either of them join in wishing them a long life, happiness and success in their Christian work.

In the city of Elkhart, Ind., Thursday, August 11, 1910, occurred a very pretty marriage when C. L. Winkleman, of Beach was joined in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Martha Meyers of the former city. The ceremony took place in the Lutheran church, the pastor, Rev. Dressler, officiating.
Mr. Winkleman is one of the most learned and intelligent men in the Golden Valley. A few years ago he homesteaded 160 acres about eleven miles from Beach. By leading an economical life, he is today the proud possessor of 480 acres, which he has mostly in crop. He is an honest and broad minded man and is held in high esteem in his community.
The bride is a beautiful and charming young woman. Last June on a visit to the home of Mr. Mast she chanced to meet Mr. Winkleman; after this ties that bind stronger than friendship were knotted around them. She will be a blessing to her new neighbors, for, as is her way, she will devote her spare time to the good of the vicinity, whether it be in the church or at social gatherings.
The friends of the bride in Elkhart char varied the happy couple before they left there, and after wishing them God's speed started them on their journey for North Dakota.

- - - - -
With much regret The Advance chronicles this week the death of William H. Seeley, which occurred at him home in Woodhull's addition, Tuesday afternoon at 1:00 o'clock, in the fiftieth year of his age.
For many ears deceased was a resident of Melville, N.D., but learning of the possibilities in Beach through his old friend and former partner in the contracting and building business, A. W. Mason, came here last fall and worked for Mr. Mason through the winter months. This spring he purchased ten acrtes of land from W. H. Woodhull on which he erected a comfortable home for himself and family, and moved here along in May. After they were comfortably settled, Mr. Seeley started taking contracts for himself, and was just finishing a house of the farm of John Johnston about eight miles south, when he was taken sick. In less than a week the Great Reaper had summoned his spirit home.
Mr. Seeley was a man who always enjoyed the respect of the community in which he lived. He was a very zealous member and ardent worked in the Advent church, and done much during his life to promote best interest of the faith.
One of the particularly sad things in connection with Mr. Seeley's death is the large family of small children he leaves - four girls and two boys - to the care and guidance of the mother; the oldest not over fifteen years of age, while the youngest in only an infant.
The services were held in the Congregational church Thursday afternoon, an Advent minister from Belfield officiating. The remains were interred in the Beach cemetery.

Plans For His Long Trip
- - - - -
Edward Kromrey Purchased Ticket on the Strychnine-Pop Route to the World Beyond
- - - - -
Another sad death by suicide was brought to our notice last Monday noon when it was reported that one Edward Kromrey, had succumbed to the effects of strychnine. This time the victim was a lad of about nineteen summers who became despondent over a love tragedy that had crept into his young life in the city of Fall Creek, Wisc.
With his father, Edward came to Beachsome few months ago, and for some time past has been employed by August Weideman in the capacity of fireman on his threshing engine. He was a very faithful employee and soon became a favorite with Mr. Weideman.
Although it was known that the young man was grieving more or less over a slight dispute he had with his sweetheart before leaving for North Dakota, no one imagined that he preferred the grave rather than live without her, yet how weak are our minds when we try to realize the agony the young man must have endured that caused him to commit such a rash act. Monday morning he decided to end it all. After getting shaved in one of the local barber shops he stepped into a drug store and purchased some strychnine, with which he said he intended to kill rats. He then wended his way to the cigar factory and bought a bottle of pop. He paid for the bottle saying he would not return it.
When dinner was ready at the Weideman home, where the young man was boarding, the children were sent to the barn to call him, but on reaching the automobile shed found him lying on the floor. Mr. Weideman was immediately summoned, and discovered that life was not yet extinct, but before the services of a physician could be procured, the spirit had flown to the other shore, where it will be tried before that great tribunal in the heavens above.
Before taking the deadly poison the young man made a will, leaving his earthly belongs, a sleigh, cat, dog, etc., to the different members of the family. In another note he stated the kind of flowers he preferred to be placed on his casket, who the pall bearers should be, the minister and they hymns he wanted sung. He wrote and mailed a letter to the girl, and the following note to his parents was found in his pocket:
“Meet my body in a coffin at Fall Creek. Take my body and burn it to ashes and throw the ashes away, so nobody can find them, for I am your hateful son, Edward. Tell my brother not to worry for me. This is the way I wanted to be. I have taken strychnine and pop.”
Besides his parents, the young man had several brothers and sisters. One brother, John, lives about eight miles north of Beach.
The remains were buried in the Beach cemetery Wednesday, his father being present at the interment.

Succumbs To Burns
- - - - - - Clothes Catch on Fire From Burning Cook Car - Lives About Twelve Hours
- - - - -
Last Friday afternoon between the hours of 4:00 and 5:00 o'clock in some unaccountable way, the cook car owned by P. A. Cook caught fire. In the car was Mrs. Cook getting ready for supper, and noticing the blaze, apparently rushed out. She must have forgotten some article she highly valued, for she immediately entered the car again. By this time the flames were spurting out in every direction, and when she re-appeared her clothes were on fire.
Assistance was given at once, but before her clothing could be removed or the fire extinguished, the body was horribly burned, and Saturday morning about 4:00 o'clock the soul departed in quest of its heavenly home. Deceased, whose maiden name was Miss Aggie McCullough, was born in the province of New Brunswick, Can., in the year 1862. Afterwards the family moved to the state of Wisconsin, where Miss McCullough met Mr. Cook and finally married, about twenty-one years ago.
Mr. Cook came to the Golden Valley last fall on a trip and was so taken up with the rich soil an even climate, that he decided to make this his future home. He returned to Beach again last spring and a few weeks later Mrs. Cook started for North Dakota from Oshkosh, Wis., where they had lived for some time. She arrived here along the first of July.
A husband and two sons are left to mourn the untimely death of the dearest and best friend they ever knew. Although practically strangers, the community joins with The Advance in extending to Mr. Cook and his two boys, our heartfelt sympathy.
The remains were taken to Oshkosh, Saturday, for interment.

Last Saturday ye writer experienced a feeling of deep melancholy when he learned that R. E. Ripley, one of the popular and influential bachelors of our city, had joined hands with Miss Addie Newman of Big Timber, Montana, on Wednesday, at 12 o'clock noon, on the 5th day of October, 1910

. Not but that we are pleased to know that the genial “Rip” had found a helpmate to sweeten and gladden his future days, but it is because we must now so often find his chair vacant at our after dinner smokers that causes a sadness and lonesome feeling to creep within our masculine frames.
The young couple were married at the home of the bride's parents, the knot being tied by the Congregational minister. After the ceremony a sumptuous wedding dinner was served to the immediate members of the family. A honeymoon trip to Hunter's Hot Springs was enjoyed, coming to Beach the first of the week, which will be their home for the present.
Mr. Ripley is well and favorably known in Beach, having been connected with the banking and loan business in the valley for some time. The bride was a popular young society lady of Big Timber and will be heartily welcomed to our city. They have taken rooms over the First National Bank. The Advance joins with the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Ripley in wishing them a long life of happiness and prosperity.

An Exceptionally Sad Death
- - - - -
Clinton George Logan Succumbed to an Attack of Infantile Paralysis Last Friday.
- - - - -
The citizens of Beach were shocked last Friday noon when it was reported that Clinton George, a son of Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Logan, had succumbed to an attack of infantile paralysis at the home of his parents, in his twenty-first year.
For some time the young man had not been in the best of health, which he usually enjoyed, but as he did not complain his parents thought it was a slight irregularity of the system that would soon right itself. However, on the 29th day of September as he was fixing some goods into place on a top shelf in his father's store, he accidentally fell off the step ladder on which he was standing and, while being assisted to his feet, it was found he was practically helpless. He was at once taken to him home where every possible comfort was given. A doctor was summoned and diagnosed the disease infantile paralysis.
Everything ws done to restore his health, but God's will must be done and last Friday, October 7, about noon, he entered into that long sleep from which the eyes only open on the borders of paradise in the heavens above. Deceased was an exceptionally bright and energetic young man, and during the past three years had been closely connected with his father in business affairs. Honest in his dealings with the public, it is needles to say that his character was held in good repute by the citizens of Beach and his acquaintances throughout the Golden Valley. He came here from Winona, Minn., the place of his birth, three years ago.
Services were held Monday in the Congregational church, Rev. Good officiating. The remains were shipped to Winona, Minn., for burial in the family plot and were accompanied by the sorrow stricken parents and their two youngest children, Lavain and Pernie.
The family has the sincere sympathy of the entire community in their sudden bereavement.
John and Willie Logan of Winona, brothers of the deceased, were in attendance at the funeral here and returned east with the body.

The many friends of Jen H. Nichols were pained and shocked Wednesday afternoon to learn of his death, which took place at 11:15 that morning. Mr. Nichols was born in the town of Irving, Jackson county, Wisconsin, January 29, 1863, and was therefore forty-seven years of age at the time of death.

Since coming to the Golden Valley Mr. Nichols, by his sterling qualities and genial, good nature, has made many friends who sincerely mourn his untimely demise. He was an untiring worker and was fast accumulating a competency for himself and family. His reputation has been above reproach in whatever community he has lived, and Beach and vicinity lose a good citizen in his untimely taking away.
His wife and two girls survive him, and to them is extended the sincere sympathy of the community.

Buried Under a Load of Settler's Goods Young Man Lives Only Thirty Minutes - Head Pinned to Ground With A Stove - Settler Escapes Unhurt - - - - -
As we go to press word reaches our office of the death of Bert Brost, a young man who came to Beach last August from Cumberland, Wis., and entered the employ of E. B. Sutton as a drayman.
He was hauling a load of settler's good from this city to a farm south of Williams. They had almost reached their destination when just as they were going around a small hill the front wheel dropped into a chuck hole, throwing the furniture and driver to the ground. The settler immediately cleared away the furniture, but when he got to Brost he found that the stove had fallen on his head, badly crushing the skull. A doctor was immediately sent for, but long before he arrive life had been extinct. In an unconscious state, the young man lived about half and hour.
Miss Hazel Brost, a sister living at Clam Falls, Wis., was notified of his death, but as yet an answer has not been received. Deceased was only in his twenty-first year, and a boy, who, as far as we know always led an honorable life. Mr. Sutton says he was one of the best men he had.

Serious Fire Near Carlyle

Home of Rev. Jos. W. Dudley Burns to the Ground - Grandchild a Victim of the Flames.
- - - - -
Thursday morning the home of Rev. Jos. W. Dudley at Carlyle was burned to the ground with all its contents.
In the house at the time were the two small children of Mrs. Daisy Clark, daughter of Mr. Dudley. Mrs. Clark was in the yard when she first noticed the flames and, although she done everything a mother could to save her children, Dudley, the fourteen-months-old baby, perished in the flames. The other child was slightly burned, but not seriously.
Mr. Dudley suffered a heavy loss financially. Besides the house which was valued at $1200, he lost $2500 worth of grain, all his furniture, clothing, bedding, and a very extensive library.
The fire was of unknown origin, but it is thought that it was caused by an explosion in the stove. No insurance.

Tragedy at Carlyle
- - - - -
A correct account of the tragedy which happened at Carlyle on Tuesday, November 22, 1910

: About 12 o'clock Tuesday the home of Rev. J. W. Dudley burned to the ground and with it burned little Donald Clark, grandson of Rev. Dudley. The child's mother, Mrs. Daisy Clark, was sweeping the yard just in front of the door, when as agent drove up and began talking to her. Just then she heard a noise and heard the baby scream. She dropped her broom and turned to run into the house, when she was met by a volume of smoke and flame, which filled the house. By his crying she found Dudley, a two-year old child, and after carrying him out she started back after the baby, but was beaten back by flames. She then picked up an ax and ran to the front of the house, intending to break through the window into the room where the baby was, but found flames bursting out of all the windows. The agonized mother started into the flames, but the agent, who had returned, dragged her back. Cause of the fire will always remain a mystery. It is generally supposed that something in the coal caused a spontaneous explosion. Rev. Dudley has suffered a severe financial loss. Nothing whatever was recovered from the fire, the loss on household goods amounting to about $2,000, besides an extensive library and over 1,000 bushels of grain
A portion of the child's body was rescued from the flames and given a Christian burial. Funeral services were held Sunday at the home of W. A. Walters, north of Carlyle, Rev. Good of the Congregational church of Beach officiating. The body was laid at rest in the Beach cemetery. Donald Clark was born January 29, 1910, at the age of 9 months and 24 days. A blue eyed child with curly golden hair; an angels face could not have been sweeter or more pure. He was mentally developed far beyond an ordinary child and the merry smile with which he greeted everyone endeared him to the hearts of all. His life of purity and innocence has left an impression that time can never efface, just as his death leaves an acing void that can never be filled.
A tender ray of God's own sunshine, he drifter into the world, lighting up dark places and warming up hearts that were cold. No one but the mother can fully realize how much good the little life has done, but God needed the little sunbeam to shine around His heavenly throne and however much our hearts ache, we can only say, “Thy will be done.”

August W. Pippert of this city was crushed to death under the wheels of a moving train in the freight yards of the N. P. railway in Fargo last Saturday night. The exact cause of the accident will probably not be known. The deceased was a young man, and was perhaps preparing to ride the brake beams out of town. His body was horribly crushed and mangled, and recognition was obtained only by means of a notebook which gave the victim's name and the address of his aunt, Mrs. Eline Nissen of this place. Mrs. Nissen was communicated with by the Fargo authorities and she at once wired the distressing news to the young man's parents in St Louis. The lady was unable herself to go to scene of the young man's death, and the matter of disposition of the remains was left for the parents to decide.
Mr. Pippert is not widely known here but is well remembered by a few persons and was known to have been about this city off and on for some time. He is said to have been a baker by trade, but had worked at different lines.

Coal Gas Kills Montana Man

Waysiech Popiel, a Prosperous Resident Across Montana Line, is Asphyxiated
- - - - -
Dr. Museus was called out southwest of town on Wednesday to the home of Waysiech Popiel, a prominent farmer just over the Montana line, who had been asphyxiated by coal gas while trying to excavate coal from an abandoned well on his premises. Death had occurred long before the physician's arrival, the unfortunate man having been in the well for about two and one-half hours before his body could be rescued.
Mr. Popiel who has been generally known as Albert, was a brother of John Popiel of the same neighborhood, the two having been natives of Austria, where they have a mother and brothers and sisters still living. The deceased was about twenty-eight years old, and though still single he had acquired considerable property, including a half-section of land, which will fall to his relatives.
At the time of descending into the well, he was apparently overcome at once with the gas fumes, as he called for help and was heard by the hired man. The well was dark at the bottom, and as no light would burn it, all help was exceedingly difficult. Being unable to do anything without assistance, the man went to John Popiel's a distance of about two miles. The body was secured only after much difficulty, and when secured, the signs of death were unmistakable.

Aged Pioneer Passed Beyond

Michael Knott, Old-Time Resident of Billings County, Is Dead, After Painful Illness.
- - - - -
Death came, on Monday, to bring relief to an aged suffered who has been confined for some time past with painful ailments from which there was no hope of cure. The sufferer was Mr. Michael Knott, an old-time resident of this section, who was brought into town from his farm home about two weeks ago for such treatment and care as could be give him.
Mr. Knott was seventy-three years old at the time of his death, which occurred on December 19th. Funeral services were held from the undertaking rooms of Overstad & Hoverson on the 21st inst., Rev. C. M. Good officiating.
The deceased was a native of Germany, from whence he removed to American about twenty-five years ago after having served with credit in the Franco-Prussian war in behalf of his native land. He came west to this section at an early date, and being a meat cutter by trade he found employment at Medora as head cutter in the great packing plant of the Marquis de Mores, during the wild western days of that prominent Frenchman and our only living ex-president.
The old man is said to have been a good deal of a recluse in his later years and had few intimate acquaintances. Those who knew him but casually believed him to be of an irascible disposition; but it is generally believed that his peculiarities would have been less noticeable under more favorable conditions for acquaintance. His sufferings during his last illness attracted to him the profound sympathy of those who knew of his condition and understood the hopelessness of his ailment.
