DAKOTA STATE NEWS
MILLER---Soren Jacobson, a prominent farmer, was blinded, most likely permanently, by an explosion of lime that he was slaking, the report being as loud as from a gun. His nose and mouth were filled with the stuff, and he is in a very bad condition.
MILLER'S MAYOR IS THE VICTIM OF ACCIDENTS
Miller, S.D., Oct. 19---Mayor Christ, hardly recovered from a badly injured back by a fall, this morning, in cranking up his automobile, broke his right arm. He was getting ready to start campaigning, being also a candidate for state's attorney.
IROQUOIS--- D. F. Wilmarth, a prominent resident, will heereafter let his wife cut the kindling While engaged in this work, his hatchet was deflected, with the result that he cut off the end of the first finger on his left hand.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR DEATH CANNOT BE ESTABLISHED
Huron, S.D., Oct. 21---Miss Ethel Gillis and Earl Crane, of Willow Lakes, [Willow Lake ? csr] were given a preliminary hearing before Justice Case, of Willow Lakes, this week, and the case was dismissed, it being thought that there were not sufficient grounds for binding the defendants over to circuit cout.
The action followed the shooting and subsequent death of Mrs Oliverson, of Willow Lakes, some months ago. When examined, Mr. Oliverson and Mr. and Mrs. Meegard, who were members of the party at the time of the shooting, all gave practically the same story. As they were returning from Vienna by auto they passed Miss Gillis and Mr. Crane, about 150 feet distant. After passing them they heard the report of two rifles almost simultaneously and immediately saw that Mrs. Oliverson was hurt. Both of the young people came to the car when it stopped. They stated that they had shot at a telephone post across the road, and a fresh mark on it showed that one bullet had struck it. Mrs. Oliverson's death followed shortly.
How the tragedy occurred may never be known, but it is believed that it was purely an accident.
