A Sad Accident
 
A very sad and serious accident occurred Wednesday afternoon near Okabena, when a team of John Ulfer's, which was hitched to a binder, runaway and in their blind fright ran over his little four year old son killing him instantly, the body being literally cut to pieces. This is the first harvest accident we have been called upon to record this season and it is certainly a sad one. The grief stricken parents have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavment. --Heron Lake Times.

SEE DAUGHTER DROWN
Father Rushes Into lake at Windom, but Draws Girl out Too Late.
 
Windom, Minn., Aug. 15 -- while wading along the shore at Summit Lake, near here, this afternoon Dorothy Williams, ten years old, the daughter of Matt N. Williams, superintendent of schools, stepped into a hole and was drowned before the eyes of her father and mother, who were sit- [sic] a short distance from the shore.
 
Mr. Williams rushed into the water when his daughter sank the first time but before he could reach her she had gone down again. After gropin[g] madly thru the water he grasped her body and carried her ashore.
 
Faint signs of life were detected, but the little girl died within a few minutes.
 
Delicate Operation
 
Earma, the six year old daughter of Register of Deeds and Mrs. H.R. Tripp, was operated on at the Worthington Hospital early Tuesday morning for intuss usseption [sic], or telescoping of the bowels, by Drs. Manson, Geyerman and Dolan. The operation was a splendid success and the little patient is getting along nicely.
 
Dr. Manson was called to attend the little girl on Monday and found what he supposed to be a simple case of stomach ache, but it persistently refused to yield to treatment so an operation was decided on late Monday night. The case was one in which delay was dangerous, and had the operation been put off a few hours it would have been ineffective and death would have resulted.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Steiglider and is a very popular young lady. They left this morning for Minneapolis where they will visit before going to their future home. They have the well wishes of a host of friends. --Spencer Reporter, Aug. 9th.
