  • Notes 
    • Sad Death in Berlin.

      Miss Minnie Hemmerly, an esteemed and trusted employee of Geo. Rumpel & Co's Felt Boot factory, met with an untimely and sad death this (Saturday) morning. Miss Hemmerly had been suffering with a severe sore throat for the past week and had been using medicine to cure it. Some friends recommended the use of carbolic acid diluted with water as a gargle as a cure for her ailment and she procured a bottle for that purpose.

      On Friday evening Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Piellusch, Breithaupt St., where the deceased boarded, and Mr. and Mrs. Louis Krels, of New York City, the latter a sister of Miss Hemmerly, went to Waterloo to visit friends and left her in charge of the two children of Mr. Piellusch. It is supposed that the children were put to bed and the young lady went to her room to take her new medicine and not knowing the nature of carbolic acid she swallowed half of a two ounce bottle. Miss Hemmerly was found in her room lying across her bed by Mr. and Mrs. Piellusch on their return from Waterloo, the bottle lying on the floor beside the bed. The young lady was unconscious. A physician was immediately summoned, restoratives were applied and everything possible was done to save her life but in vain. She died this morning at 6.15.

      The relatives and friends of the deceased are overwhelmed with grief at the sad untimely death of one whom to know was to love and the sympathy of the entire community will be extended to the immediate relatives in this sad hour.1a
