The mild weather of the past week was rather easy on the wood pile, but rather harsh on sleighing.

A very sad accident occurred at the John Kintzele farm last week Thursday morning. The oldest son of the family, Vernie was engaged in milking and his unusually long absence aroused his father’s suspicion and going to the barn he found the boy lying under the cow, unconscious, his face covered with blood and the right eye nearly torn out of his head.  The unfortunate boy is subject to epileptic spells and it is supposed that he was overcome by one of those spells while milking and fell under the cow, the animal tramping upon the helpless body unmercifully.  He is bruised up considerably about the body, but the injuries are not of a serious nature. Dr. Ross informs us that the boy will recover, but he has little hopes of saving the eye.


True to their orders from District Attorney C. E. Briere, the Marshfield police made a search Saturday for Jay Lapp, who had ordered to leave the city.  They were unable to find him, and it is reported that he and his wife are somewhere in Marathon County, the man being employed cutting wood. The police have instructions to arrest him and notify the district attorney at once in case he comes back to town. - Marshfield News
