Tuesday Mrs. 'J "8 "Bulla fell down
the elevator wayin the 'rear end of the
Christiansen Co -,v store. -She was taken
to the home of Dr..' O.ABritell where
she was cared for until the next after
noon when 6be was taken to. her home.
While her injuries are very painful there
are no bones broken and she, hopes to be
fully recovered in a short time.
From the Pott.
Another, fire -occurred last week on
Thursday evening. This 'timev it was
the home, of P. 6. Dncey, 1 miles
south of town, when the two story house
with all valuables, clothing and -furniture,
with-the' exception of "part of the
parlor furniture, burned to the founda
tion. It seems that Mrs. Ducey was
ironing in the afternoon and was roast
ing a chicken in the evening when the
fire started. She had left the kitchen
to see about the baby and when she re
turned the room was all ablaze. Mrs.
Ducey at once 'phoned her husband who
had come to town to transact a matter
of business, but by the time he and sev
eral fireman, as well as some of the
neighbors had reached tLe scene, it was
impossible to save anything except what
had been taken out of the parlor. It
seems to have been another case of "poor
chimney," as it is believed that the fire
started from the chimney on the inside
of the wall. The loss is considered to be
about $2,500 with $1,050 insurance.
From the Gazette.

John Elmenhorst was on his way home
from Petersburg with a load of lumber,
the wagon was overturned and he was
killed by being caught under his load.
The accident occurred about six miles
this Bide of Petersburg, where there is a
deep cut by the side of the road. The

whom he had worked for some. time. His
folks formerly lived east of Petersburg,
