ATTEMPTED SUICIDE 
Mrs. Jos. Brusch, Jr., Shoots Herself Because of Family Troubles.. 

Tired of family quarrels and strife, Mrs. Jos. Brusch, Jr., wife of a farmer living 
twelve miles southwest of town, turned a revolver on herself and fired a bullet through her 
body with suicidal intent about 6 o'clock last Sunday evening. The aim for the heart was 
true and death would have been instantaneous had the ball not struck a rib and glanced down- 
ward, passing half an inch below the heart and coming out at the back. 

Mrs. Brusch' s maiden name was Kubish and she was married against the wishes of her rel 
atives, turning a deaf ear to the suggestion that the reputation of the family as quarrelsom 
neighbors would make Joe Brusch an undersirable life mate. They were married a year ago las 
February and the prophecy of her brother and other relatives proved only too true. She foun 
life almost unbearable. .. .owing largely to too much mother-in-law as Brusch himself is said 
to be not such a bad fellow. . .and after living with her husband about a year left for Minnes 
Ota, intending to get a divorce, before returning. She relented, however, and returned to 
her husband about three weeks ago on his promise to make things more pleasant for her. She 
found the condition of affairs had not changed any for the better, however, and driven to 
desperation she made the attempt on her life. Mrs. Brusch is a young and attractive woman, 
well thought of by the neighbors, and her rash attempt at self destruction is generally 
regretted. Dr. Spottswood reports her out of danger and unless unexpected complications set 
in she will be all right again in a short time. 

Mrs. Wm. Garlow, who was burned to death on the reservation by an explosion of kerosen 

a couple of months ago, was a sister-in-law to Mrs. Brusch, „ ^ w innn

"BIG LOU" MURDERED 
A Well Known Characted Shot Dead at White Rock Saturday Night. 

Louis Halvorson, better known throughout this section as "Big Lou," was shot in the 
back and instantly killed by Henry Blllitt in Benson's Saloon at White Rock, SD., shortly 
before 6 o'clock last Saturday night. The shot was fired from both barrels of a shotgun, 
the charge striking Halvorson between the shoulders and passing clear through him. He livec 
but twenty minutes. 

The shooting was the result of an argument over politics. Halvorson, Albert Reedy, 
Alfred and Henry Blllitt, the first named a republican the others democrats, were drinking 
in the saloon and Halvorson emphasized his argument by knocking Henry Blllitt down. On 
rising Blllitt exclaimed "I'll kill you." and left the place. He was seen returning In a 
few minutes with a gun and Halvorson was warned of his approach, but refused to get out of 
harm's way, He was standing at the bar with his back to the door as Blllitt entered, and 
the latter raised his gun and fired at a distance of not more than twenty feet. A jagged 
hole was torn clear through Halvorson, who turned around and attempted to speak but was 
choked by blood and fell forward on his face, dying twenty minutes later. Blllitt escaped

but was captured in a short time and lodged In jail. It is reported that he was later re- 
leased on bail, but this seems hardly probable. He is a farmer on the reservation just west 
of White Rock and has hitherto borne a good reputation. The shooting was witnessed by a 
number of loungers in the saloon. 

"Big Lou' was a giant Swede, well known here and in the reservation country south and 
generally feared on account of his quarrelsome disposition. He was frequently engaged in 
brawls and was stabbed with almost fatal results at a dance near Vernon last winter. He 
was frequently seen here, having been in Jake Glasner'e employ for a short time. So far as 
known he had no relatives in this country and was buried at VJhite Rock on Tuesday with littl

RICHLAND COUNTY GIRL DEAD 
The "Big Headed Girl" Dies Suddenly in Minneapolis 

Nathalia Wheeler, known as "the big headed girl," died suddenly at the Foster Hotel, 
1st Ave. N and First Street, this morning. The girl, who was not yet 7 years old, had att- 
racted wide attention in medical circles because of the abnormal development of her head, 
which measxired thirty seven inches, or over three feet in circumference. 

She was bom on March 31st, 1894, in Richland County, ND. , and had never been seen by 
half a dozen people out of her own family circle until Sept. 20th, when she made her first 
public appearance at New Ulm. She later appeared at the Red Wing County Fair, and was at 
a Minneapolis Museum the first week in October. 

She was to have gone to the Clark Street Museum, Chicago, last Monday, but ill health 
in the fainily prevented her departure. "Tallie," as she was familiarly called by her rel- 
atives, was a remarkably bright child for her age. In spite of the huge head, she was gift- 

aco 



ed with exceptionally fine features. She spoke English and Swedish fluently for a child, 
and sang very sweetly. 

"I was wrapped up in Babe," said her father with tears in his eyes this afternoon, 
"and her death is a great blow to me." Coroner Nelson conducted an autopsy. He decided 
that death was due to brain trouble, centering in the spinal cord. ...Minneapolis Journal...

DEATH of C. H. JUNKER 
Well Known Former Resident Dies at Barrett, Minn. 

C. H. Junker, for ten years superintendent of the Keystone farm north of this place, 
died at Barrett, MN., last Sunday, Dec. 30th, at the age of 57 years. He had returned only 
three weeks before from Japan, where he went in June of last year to take charge of the Star 
dard Oil Company's Interests. While there he contracted a malarial fever and failing health 
required his return. The disease settled in his chest, however, and caused a hemorrhage las 
Sunday from the effects of which death ensued.

men lodges on Tuesday, and the remains were brought here on the same day. The local Masonic 
Lodge took charge of the funeral here and he was buried with the honors of the fraternity

time of his death. From the age of 13 years he had worked at the oil business most of 

the time in the employ of the Standard Oil Company ... and was an expert in all matters per- 
taining to the production of petroleum. The ailment which resulted in his death was contrac 
ed while prospecting for oil in the interior of Japan, and the company's faith in his abilit 
is shown by the fact that he was superintendent of their entire Japanese business. 

an 



Deceased came to Richland County in 1887 and for the succeeding ten years was super- 
intendent of the bonanza Keystone farm north of here. He was universally popular and the 
hospitality of the Junker home was noted throughout this section. In 1897 he moved from her

gone to Thompson's Saloon, and Henry Billett, accompanied by Albert Reidy, went in after 
him. On seeing them coming in Halvorsen started for the back door of the saloon, and 
Henry Billett raised his rifel and shot him through the back, Halvorsen dying in a few 
minutes. The saloonkeeper tried to grab the rifle, but Reidy grabbed him and held him so 
Billett could shoot. The prisoners and the murdered man had bad reputations.

"Friday morning our people were shocked to learn that E. H. Greene had passed away the 
evening before at his home in the north part of town, comparatively few having heard of 
his being sick. Mr. Greene was taken down Sunday with an attack of lagrippe which seemed 
to be yielding to treatment up till Thursday morning when symptons of heart failure began

he peacefully passed away at 11:30 PM Thursday evening. Mr. Green was 61 years old, a

A terrible tragedy occurred at Braddock, the present terminus of the Oakes branch, 
on Wednesday morning of last week. A Swedish farmer named Revenger shot his neighbor, 
Nels Olson, in the neck, the bullet emerging at the mouth. The murderer escaped at the 
time but later was found dead on the prairie with his head shot off . He had placed the 
muzzle of a shotgun in his mouth and fired it off with his toe. The killing occurred at 
a house moving bee in the presence of a dozen or more witnesses. Later it was learned tha 
the murderer met Pete Levine while on his way to kill Nelson and fired half a dozen shots 
from a revolver at his head. Levine 's life was saved by his leather cuff, the shot strik- 
ing his wrist. Letters left by Revenger show that the murder was premeditated, but it is

INFANTICIDE. 
Lldgerwood Girl Accused of Murdering Her Own Child 

Lena Mackhovich, a 19 year old girl whose parents live near Lldgerwood, is under 
arrest at Murdock, MN., charged with the murder of her own child about one month old. 

The girl with her child arrived at Murdock on Thursday morning of last week. She 
stopped at a hotel and shortly after started for a walk down the Great Northern tracks, 
carrying the babe. About 5 o'clock she returned alone and when asked by Mrs. Mathias Sch- 
lagel, wife of the hotel proprietor, what she had done with the child refused to answer. 
Suspicion was aroused but no action was taken in the matter until morning, when it was 
decided to make a search for the missing child. P. J. Johnson was among the searchers 

L25I 



and about a mile northwest of town he found the body of the child in a wheat field. A 
handkerchief was tied tightly around the child's neck, indicating that it had been stran- 
gled to death. 

After returning to town the woman had taken the night train for Wahpeton, spending 
the early evening walking the streets. 

About 3 AM the next morning Night Policeman Mc Kenzie found the woman at the depot 
and took her to the City Hotel at Wahpetoa. In the morning she sought employment and was 
engaged as second cook at the Columbia restaurant. Sheriff Moody, on receipt of a mess- 
age from Murdock, placed the girl under arrest and she was taken back to Murdock by a 
Swift County Deputy Sheriff. 

Meantime a coroner's inquest had been held and a verdict returned that the child 
had come to its death by violence at the hands of persons unknown, presumably the mother. 

The girl was taken to Benson for a preliminary hearing. She was identified as the 
woman who had been at Murdock, after which the hearing was postponed to July 1st to give 
witnesses from Lidgerwood time to arrive.

DEATH of MRS. SHIPE 
Well Known Hankinson Resident Passes Away Suddenly 

The community was greatly shocked last Friday evening when word was passed from mout 
to mouth that Mrs. A. R. Shipe had died suddenly at her home at 6 o'clock. While it was 
generally known that her health was poor it was not supposed there was any immediate dange 
and the end came as a complete surprise to all. Deceased had been visiting relatives in 
Minneapolis and returned on the Friday morning early train suffering from nervous prostrat 
ion. Her illness continued through the day and brought on heart trouble, which was the 
limned late cause of her death. 

The sudden death of her husband, which occurred on March 5th, 1899, was a shock frot 
which Mrs. Shipe never fully recovered, and the additional sorrow caused by the death of 
her only daughter a few months before left her nervous system badly shattered. Since thai 
time the beautiful home in this village has been a house of sorrow, and the deceased glad- 
ly surrendered' her earthly bondage to join the loved ones who had gone before. 

Deceased had been a faithful wife and through the months of widowhood constantly 
mourned for her departed ones. As a mother she was fond and indulgent, satisfying every 
wish of her children as far as possible. Those who are left behind have the sincere sym- 
pathy of the community in their bereavement. 

The funeral was held Monday afternoon, and the service was impressive and beautiful 
Rev. W. H. Gimblett preached the funeral sermon and the remains were interred in the cem- 
etery, east of town, the Royal neighbors of America conducting the simple and touching fun 
eral service of the order at the grave. 

Beautiful floral offerings covered the casket at both the house and cemetery.

A STRAKGE CASE 
Death of a Character at Jamestown Who Mystified Prison Officials. 

The demented individual who spent a couple of days in Hankinson last June and was 
afterwards escorted out of town by "jerry," died at the Jamestown Asylum on Aug. 15th. 
He wandered from here to Grand Forks and was there taken into custody and afterwards com- 
mitted to the asylum. His actions at Grand Forks were the same as here, the fellow being 
caught by a policeman while eating pieces of bread and meat from a swill barrel. The 
asylum physicians pronounce it one of the most remarkabel cases that has ever come under 
their observation. From the time of his arrest till the day he died he never uttered a 
word. Apparently he understood what was said to him, but seemed utterly indifferent to 
everything. He refused to eat anything aside from bread and water, and appeared to spend 
much of his time in silent prayer, moving his lips but uttering no sound. ^•Then he was 
received there in July he was in an awful condition, being nothing but skin and bones, 
and improved but little in this respect till the time of his death. 

His identity is a mystery. There was nothing found on his person that would give 
the least clue as to who he was or where he came from, and when asked regarding this matti 
he would simply smile, and at times a far away expression would be noted in his eyes, as 
though he was thinking of some distant land. He was not violent at any time, and was 
obedient, doing whatever he was told to do without protest. He dressed himself without 
aid and kept his person clean at all times. Judge Hassel has received notice from Dr. 
Moore of the Jamestown hospital that the unfortunate man was taken sick on Aug. 12th and 
died Aug. 15th and was burled on the day following. While he was at the asylum every 
known means was resorted to to get the man to utter a sound but all was in vain, and he 
died and was buried unknown to anyone, and all hopes of establishing his identity have 
been abandoned. He was apparently a Scandinavian, smooth faced, light complected and 
about 35 years old. ********** August 30, 1901

FOUOT) DEAD 
John Rudd, a Spanish War Veteran, Dies on a Soo Freight. 
Last Friday afternoon, when the Soo freight from the east pulled in here, an unknown 
man was found dead under a threshing rig that was being shipped north on a flat car. The 
rig was owned by Dempsey of Wheaton, MN., and the dead man was a member of the crew that 
was going with the machine to the vicinity of Fessenden. Instead of joining the other 
members of the crew, however, he had fixed up a comfortable resting place on the flat car 
with the beding of his fellows. The last seen of him alive was just before leaving Fair- 
mount, at which time he mounted the car in an intoxicated condition. When found here the 
body was still warm and Dr. Spottswood worked some time in the hope of restoring life but 
without avail. The remains were taken to the village jail and Coroner Kaufmann summoned. 
He arrived Saturday morning and after examining half a dozen witnesses. . .H. C. Farslow, 
Frank and Joe Peitz, Nels Miller, Dr. Spottswood, Chas. Hein Ed. McLaughlin and a member 
of the crew... decided that the deceased came to his death from acute alcoholism, and that 
afternoon the remains were buried at the county's expense. Little was known of the man 
beyond the fact that he had been a local character at Wheaton for a year or more, spending 
most of his time and all of his money at the saloons. Even his name was unknown to his . 

associates. 

It seems there was one man at Wheaton. however, who had served with the deceased in 
the Spanish War. and knew his true name was John M. Rudd, and he notified Major James 
Elwln at Minneapolis, where Rudd's people resided. No effort was made to find the family. 
however, and they would have remained ignorant of his death but for a brief item in Tues- 
day's Times which caught the eye of G. M, Rudd, a step-brother of the deceased. He Imm- 
ediately took the train for here and arrived the same evening. On learning the condition 
of affairs and that the body had already been buried, he returned to Minneapolis Wednesda: 
afternoon. In an interview with The NEWS he stated that the deceased was 38 years old anc 
for several years had been lost sight of by the family, who cast him off on account of hi: 
intemperate habits. The father. M. J. Rudd. lives at 1821 7th St. S.. Minneapolis. 

Deceased was five feet four inches tall, weighted 140 pounds; light complexion, blu.

GREAT BEND ITEMS ... .Died of Heart Disease. .. .Claus Fisher, living four miles east 
of here, died last Saturday morning at his home of heart disease. Deceased was of appar- 
ent good health, till the evening previous to his death, when he complained to his wife 
about having a headache, and this continued to grow worse, till it became necessary to 
send for a doctor. But all medical skill was useless, death had drawn near and he quietly 
passed away in the presence of his wife and a few assembled neighbors. Deceased was a 
Kealthy farmer, and well known by every one in this vicinity. 

He leaves a wife but no children. The funeral was held on Monday at the Lutheran 
Church, Rev. T. Hlnk conducting the services. The entire congregation followed the remair 
to their last resting place. The entire community as well as the widow feel the loss of 
their well liked friend. ^^^^^^^^^^ December 20, 1901
