  • Notes 
    • Mrs. Nicholas Wenzel Killed

      Mrs. Nich. Wenzel, formerly Miss Alice Betzner, daughter of Mrs. Isaac Betzner of this town, was almost instantly killed in an auto accident on Saturday evening about 8 30 o'clock, and her brother, William Betzner, was seriously injured, sustaining a fracture of three ribs near the spine.

      Mr. and Mrs. Wenzel and Mr. Betzner left on a short auto ride along Bleam's road, and near Mr. A. Zoeller's farm, about two miles east of the village, the accident occurred. Just how it happened is not definitely known, but the car swerved around and turned turtle on the centre of the road. Wm Betzner and Mr. Wenzel were thrown clear of the car, but Mrs. Wenzel was pinned underneath. Mr. Wenzel was but slightly injured and stunned and was able to seek help. Passersby helped to extricate the unfortunate young woman from beneath the car and she was removed to the home of Mr. Andrew Zoeller and medical aid immediately summoned. Upon examination by Dr. Marty it was found that her spine was broken and she passed away about an hour after the accident occurred without having regained consciousness. Her brother was taken in an auto to his home here where he is still in a precarious condition.

      The remains of Mrs. Wenzel were brought to the home of her parents on Sunday forenoon, from whence the funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon to Riverside Cemetery, the service being held in Trinity Lutheran Church.

      The sad affair cast a gloom over the community and much sympathy is felt for the bereaved family. The deceased was 27 years of age, and was for the past five years dining room girl at the Commercial Hotel here, and had been married but recently. A large circle of friends deplore her tragic and untimely death. She is survived by her husband and parents, three sisters and one brother, who have the deepest sympathy of all.
