afternoon, following an operation performed Sunday afternoon for bowel
obstruction. Although he had been in comparatively good health right along,
he lacked vitality to rally and peacefully passed to his reward. He was one

very highly respected. Wealth rewarded his farming efforts in most abundant
degree and his fine farm is a testimonial to his perseverence, industry and
executive ability. In 1872 this farm, the northwest quarter of Sec. 32,
Little Rock township, was homesteaded and has been the family home ever
since. --Ellsworth News.
Last Sunday evening Jas. Brown, of Minneota township, drove to one of his

at its worst, or about 8:30, but no one knew anything about it until the
next day. Not having returned during the night, Mrs. Brown became worried
about her husband and a brother of Mr. Brown also became uneasy and started
out in the morning to look for him. He had gone but a short distance from
the house when he saw his team lying in the road on a hill about half a mile
from the house. Upon arriving there he found both horses dead still hitched
to the buggy. The victim of the tragedy was sitting on the buggy seat, but
so burned and badly charred that beyond recognizing the remains as that of a
human being was impossible.
The clothes Mr. Brown wore were burned so that they were black as coal.
The buggy box was also consumed by the flash of lightning. --Lakefield

FORMER RESIDENT DROWNED
Nels Hawkinson Resided for a Number of Years Near Worthington.
"Nels Hawkinson, a resident of East Mellen, and an employee of the
tannery for a number of years, met an unfortunate and mysterious death
Sunday night by drowning in Bad river near the bridge on River street. While
he must have fallen in the river some time Sunday evening, his body was not
discovered until Wednesday forenoon, after the Mellen Water & Light Co.
closed their dam, which lowered the water in the river to such an extent
that the searchers were able to locate the body.
"Mr. Hawkinson was last seen alive about 9 o'clock Sunday night by C.W.
Macomber, Ed, Henderson and Henry Albright. The gentlemen had been fishing
and had the tannery team with them, and after putting the team up met Mr.
Hawkinson on River street, and he told them he would go and feed the team
before he went home. Mr. Hawkinson was the tannery teamster and always
insisted on taking care of the team himself.
"It was very stormy Sunday night and rained hard, but how he happened to
fall in the river and drown will never be known. His body was found near the
little building on the bank once used for a blacksmith shop by the leather
company. A large number of men worked hard to locate the body, but their
efforts were not successful until Wednesday morning, when Con Clemens and
John Henry found the remains. His cap had been found in that vicinity Monday
"The deceased had been in the employ of the leather company upwards of
fifteen years during which time he has made his residence in this city. He
leaves a wife and five children. He was a member of the Modern Woodman and
carried $1,000 insurance.
The funeral was held yesterday afternoon and was largely attended.
--Mellen, (Wis.) Weekly.
Mr. Hawkinson was well known by a number of the older residents of this
community, having resided on a farm four miles south of this city for a
number of years. He left here about eighteen years ago and moved to
Wisconsin, where he has since resided until the day of his untimely death.
He is a brother of Peter Hawkinson, who lives about three miles south of

Living within a distance of one mile of North Redwood, and in a humble
hut that is surrounded on all sides by thick timber for a period of 27 years
without having left the premises, is the unusual record of Mrs. Peter Yantz,
a pioneer settler who is fully 80 years of age.
Mrs. Yantz has never seen an automobile, electric light, telephone, or
has she ever seen a moving picture show or heard a phonograph. She lives in
complete ignorance of all the wonderful developments that have taken place
during the past half century, and is as innocent of what the world is doing
as a new-born babe. She neither remembers the date of her birth nor that of
her wedding, but in accordance with the information gleaned from neighboring
farmers this remarkable woman is fully 80 years of age, and has been wedded
for at least 60 years.
Mrs. Yantz came to Redwood Co. in the early seventies in an immigrant
wagon with her husband, who served three years in the Twenty-Second
Wisconsin Regt. during the Civil War. He was captured at Springhill, Tenn.,
on March 4, 1863, and held as a prisoner by the Confederate forces for
nearly three months. He nearly died from starvation and exposure. The old
people live in perfect harmony in their hut that is surrounded by forest and
thicket. Mr. Yantz spends all his time to fishing and maintains his home on
the pension he receives from the United State government.
Both the old settlers have used tobacco for a great number of years and
Mrs. Yantz especially thoroughly enjoys her well seasoned clay pipe.
