Dies of Broken Neck

Walter Kuhn, aged about thirty-five died at the Red Cross Hospital in this city, about midnight Wednesday, the result of a broken neck. While witnessing a ball game at Wilmont Sunday he approached a friend and asked to get under his overcoat as it was cold. The friend complied with his request and in a friendly struggle the accident occured, although no one know exactly how. He was brought to this city and placed in the hospital. He was employed by G.J. Savidge in the well drilling business and worked with that gentleman in this city about two years ago. We understand that his parents are dead, and at the present writing no arrangements have been made for the funeral. The young man with whom he was fooling feels badly over the affair, but no blame is attached to him.

Mrs. Thomsa Knudtson, residing at Luverne, wrapped her little six-months' old baby in a blanket and placed it in a high chair near the stove and left the house for a few minutes. When she returned the blanket was in flames, and the baby's legs horribly burned. It is thought that the infant cannot live.

DIES VERY SUDDENLY

MRS. Asmus Nazarenus Passes Away After Only A Few Days Illness

The many friends of Mrs. Asmus Nazarenus were greatly shocked last Friday morning by her sudden and untimely death, which occurred at about nine o'clock at her home on Second Ave., after only a few days of illness. Mrs. Nazarenus took sick Monday night of last week with a severe cold and sore throat, and this combined with heart trouble and asthma is the cause of her death. She has been gradually failing in health for the past two years, but her death came very suddenly and was unexpected by all her relatives nd friends.

Mrs. Nazarenus was born in Mecklenberg, Germany, February 17th, 1860, and came to this country in January, 1883, locating in Benton county, Iowa. In September, 1883, she was united in marriage to Mr. A. Nazarenus and they came to Nobles county in 1889, locating in Elk township, where he bought a farm and engaged in farming, and have been permanent residents of this county ever since. About two years ago they celebrated their silver wedding anniversary.

Mrs. Nazarenus has always been a hard working woman and was not only a kind and loving wife and mother, but was loved and respected by all who knew her and will be greatly missed. She was a member of the German Lutheran church of Brewster.

Those who are to mounr her loss besides her husband are three children, Mr. Joe Nazarenus, Mrs. A.O. Wensberg and Alfred Nazarenus, all of this city.

At the present time Mr. Nazarenus is in Germany visiting with his brother and his absence makes the affair so much the sadder, his first letter reaching here the day of the funeral. It is not known now whether he will return at once or finish his visit.

The funeral was held Monday afternoon at 1:30 from the house and 2:00 o'clock at the German Lutheran church, Rev. Smith of Rushmore ficiating and Undertaker Benson in charge.

The floral tributes were many and beautiful and through the kindness of the ladies of the Swedish Lutheran congregation the floral decorations which were used Sunday for confirmation exercises were allowed to remain until after the funeral. Interment was made in the Worthington cemetery.

Nellie May Sliver, died at her home near Worthington, Minn., Sunday evening May 15th, 1910, at the age of 35. Apparently in perfect health and without a moment's warning, or a last farewell she passed from earth to the Homeland above.

She was born at LaPrairie, Ill., Oct. 9th, 1875, and was married to John W. Sliver. Moving to Worthington, Minn., in 1903 where they have since resided. Her husband and five children, Hattie, Harry, Earl, Edna and Jean are left to mourn her loss.

Left at an early age without a mother's care and being the oldest of five children she had the duties of both sister and mother to perform and well she did her part. She was an earnest christian uniting with the Presbyterian church at an early age.

Always gentle and kind she goes out of the lives of her loved ones leaving a heartache that none but God can heal.

Her devotion to her home was beautiful to behold and the influence of that mother's patient, unselfish life will ever live in the hearts and lives of her children. Her smile greeted young and old alike she had frowns for none. How nobly she did her duty and in so doing how well she served her master.

The funeral services were held Tuesday forenoon at the home and the Presbyterian church, Rev. Wm. Jennings officiating.

The Yeoman, of which order she was a member, attending in a body, [Sorry, the rest of this article did not get copied.]
