John SPITLER who preceded in death a number of years ago.   Mrs. Spitler was a member of

                Clem R. MILLER, aged 45, local manager of the Johnson Oil Refining Company, was fatally burned at 7:30 o’clock this morning at his filling station at 528 East Ninth Street.  The cause of the fire will in all probability always remain a secret as no one was present when Mr. Miller suffered his injuries.

                Mr. Miller, who resided at 1626 South Main street, had driven to the filling station operated by him on East Ninth Street.  He was met there by R. P. BIXLER of LaPorte, district manager of the Johnson Company.  The two men talked for a short time and Bixler then    departed.

                A short time later Mr. Miller’s cries were heard by Paul WHITCOMB, former deputy sheriff and Dean KILMER, who reside across the street from the filling station.  Whitcomb and Kilmer who saw Miller in a mass of falmes armed themselves with blankets and pushed to the unfortunate man’s assistance.

                By the time Kilmer and Whitcomb reached Miller’s side he had had presence of mind enough to be rolling in the gravel at the southwest corner of the filling station in an effort to smother the flames.  Whitcomb and Kilmer finally succeeded in smothering the flames on  Miller’s clothing, with their blankets.

                Miller was dead by the time Kilmer and Whitcomb had extinguished the fire which covered his clothing.  Miller was burned almost beyond recognition.  The undertaker who cared   for the body stated that in his long experience he had never seen a person’s body which was as      badly burned as was that of Mr. Miller’s.

                There are several theories advanced for the cause of the fire.  One is that Miller had attempted to rekindle a fire in the stove in the filling station and in so doing his clothing      which was generally saturated with oils or gasoline because of the nature of his occupation   ignited when he touched a match to the stove.

                This theory is given credence because Miller had just cut some kindling in a shed to the north---- of the filling station.  The doors to this building were open and an ax and fresh     kindling were found on the floor of the shed.  Kindling was in the stove and a badly burned pad    of paper matches was found just outside the filling station door.

                Another theory is that Miller might have fired his clothing when he struck a match on his trousers.  This however is not thought to be true because of the pad of paper matches.  Another theory is that when making kindling Miller’s ax struck a nail or stone causing a spark and this started the fire.  This theory is also discredited because the wood floor of the shed which was saturated with spilled gasoline did not ignite.  Money and checks in Miller’s pockets will have    to be salvaged as they were so badly burned.

                Mr. Miller has been a life long resident of Fulton county.  He was born on a farm in Richland township on August 14, 1887.  His parents were George and Mary MILLER.  Mr. Miller first followed the occupation of a farmer but for the past ten years has been the local manager for the Johnson Oil Company.

                The deceased was a prominent republican and was honored by his party by being elected surveyor of Fulton county for two terms or from 1925 to 1929.  He was a member of the


Methodist Church and of the Knights of Pythias lodge.

                Survivors are the widow, who was Miss Rose BOWEN, three sons, Dr. Russell MILLER, [Virgil MILLER[ who is a student in the Indiana University School of Medicine at Indianapolis, Don [MILLER] of this city, and a daughter, Annabelle [MILLER], who resides on a farm north of Rochester and Arthur E. [MILLER] of this city and one sister Mrs. Frank COOK of LaPorte.

                The funeral arrangements have not been made.

                Fred C. BUSENBURG, 39, prominent farmer of Newcastle township, was instantly killed Tuesday afternoon when a shotgun he held was accidentally discharged and the full       charge entered his body below his heart.  The news of his death was a great shock to the community where he was a leading and popular citizen and a well-to-do, modern farmer.

would get another one.  It is thought he laid the gun down on top of a wagonload of corn and    that it went off when he pulled it towards him.  Another theory advanced by the family was      that recently he had suffered from heart attack and that he might have felt faint and stumbled.      His body was found in front of the wagon.

                Using shells that he evidently purchased for that purpose and a 12-gauge shotgun found  in home of a neighbor Ward WYLIE, aged 22, an employee of the Armour Creamery      committed suicide at 9:30 o’clock Sunday morning by firing a charge into his right temple.      His face was partly blown away, death being almost instantaneous.

                Wylie, who lived on a farm on R.R. 6 one and half mile southwest of Rochester, had evidently planned to kill himself for sometime.  Saturday night he went to the home of his neighbor, George HAZLETT.  While there Mr. Hazlett said Wylie appeared to be very nervous.  Wylie went from the Hazlett home to that of Clyde BICK another neighbor who lives a short   way south of Mr. Hazlett.

                At the Bick home Wylie asked to borrow a gun, stating he wanted to kill chicken hawks.  Bick noticed also that Wylie was highly nervous and asked him about the hawks.  Bick also   asked Wylie how many chickens he had.  Wylie told him that he did not have any chickens      now but planned to buy some and he wanted to kill the hawks before he got the chickens.

                The story aroused Bick’s suspicions and he refused to permit him to have a gun.  Wylie then left the Bick home and again called on Mr. Hazlett.  On both visits Wylie bolted into the Hazlett home without knocking.  On his second visit at Hazlett’s Saturday night Wylie only stayed a short time.

                Sunday morning Wylie returned to the Hazlett home.  Seating himself in a chair he pulled Hazlett’s shot gun out from under the bad and started to examine it.  Hazlett did not have the     gun loaded.  Wylie then said to Hazlett that he thought it was going to rain, although the sun   was shining brightly, and that he believed that Hazlett should bring in a comfort which he had    on the line fearing that it might be soaked by rain.

                Hazlett complied with Wylie’s request.  In the meantime it is thought Wylie inserted a shell which he had brought with him into the shotgun.  Hazlett returned to the house again and stated to Wylie that since he thought it might rain he believed that he had better pump a      


bucket of water so that he would have some in the house.

                While Hazlett was pumping the water he heard a noise which sounded to him like something had fallen from the wall to the floor.  Going into the house he found Wylie had      shot himself.  His body was slumped down in a rocking chair.  Coroner Herbert     ZIMMERMAN was called and made an investigation.

                Wylie’s relatives say he had threatened to kill himself several times recently because of financial worries which it is thought caused despondency.  He has also been sick during the      past few months.  The deceased was born on a farm west of the city on December 29, 1909.      His parents were Charles and Geneva WYLIE.

                The deceased has been a life-long resident of Fulton county.  He graduated from Rochester High School in 1928.  Since that time he has been employed at the Armour Creamery in East Rochester where he was a trusted employee.

                Survivors are the parents and three sister, Mrs. Walter BOWEN, Deedsville, and Mildred [WYLIE] and Helen [WYLIE] at home.  The funeral services will be held from the Methodist Church at 2 p.m. Wednesday.  Rev. T. L. STOVALL will be in charge.  Burial will be made      in the Odd Fellows Cemetery.

                Gordon [STIPP], 21 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. STIPP, of Kewanna, committed suicide at the home of his sister, Mrs. Carl BAUMGARTNER, who resides at LaPorte,     Tuesday night.  The young man left a note on the dresser in his room which probably gave  reasons for his violent death, however, the contents of the letter were not made public.

                According to details of the suicide young Stipp retired rather early Tuesday night, while a short time later his brother-in-law who is a policeman of LaPorte came home and prior to his retiring he placed his revolver on the dining room table as he had always done.  A short time    later the Kewanna youth came down stairs and within a few minutes the brother-in-law, who     had not yet gone to sleep, heard Stipp return to upstairs.  A brief interval elapsed, and a report     of a gun aroused Mr. and Mrs. Baumgartner who rushed up stairs and found Stipp had shot  himself through his breast.  Near Stipp was found his brother-in-law’s gun which the youth      had secured when he came down stairs.

                The youth remained conscious up until three o’clock Wednesday morning, then gradually grew worse until the end came at six o’clock that morning.  Relatives stated Stipp had been in    ill health and was also brooding over the fact that he had been unable to secure any kind of      work during the past few months.

                Howard WILSON, aged 33, farmer residing three and half miles northeast of Rochester in the McKinley school neighborhood was drowned in the swollen waters of Chipwanuck Creek    late Thursday afternoon when he was pinned beneath fence rails as the loaded wagon on which     he was crossing the stream upset when it struck a stone in the creek.  The body was found by  Mrs. Wilson when she went to look for her husband when he failed to come in for supper.

                Wilson had left his home at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon to transport fence rails from one part of his farm to another.  He was using a team of horses and a wagon in the operation.    To move the rails it was necessary that the wagon be driven through the Chipwanuck Creek  which flows through the Wilson farm.

                When Mr. Wilson did not come home for supper Mrs. Wilson went to investigate.  She found the upturned wagon in the steeam and then summoned Steele EWING and Harvey GREGSON her neighbors to assist her.  The two farmers found the horses hitched to the     vehicle standing at the edge of the stream.  They apparently had stopped when the wagon upset.

                The body of Wilson was in a few feet of water face downward.  He had been caught by the rails in such a manner that he was unable to free himself.  A pulmotor was sent from the fire station here and was used for nearly an hour in an effort to revive Wilson but the effort proved     to no avail.  Coroner Herbert ZIMMERMAN was called and pronounced death due to      drowning.

                Mr. Wilson was born in Lycoming county, Pennsylvania on November 20, 1899 the son of McClellan and Mary WILSON.  He came to this county twenty-four years ago with his   parents who settled on a farm east of the city.  The father died two years ago.  His wife was   Mable RIDDLE whom he married on December 23, 1928.  He was a member of the Christian Church and the Gleaners Lodge.

                An examination was made of the body today by Coroner Zimmerman and two local doctors who found that Mr. Wilson’s death had been caused by a fracture of the skull near the   base of the brains.  The skull had been fractured when the rails fell on Mr. Wilson’s head.     


There was no water in the lungs which proved that death had been instantaneous.

                Survivors are the widow, the mother who lived with her son and daughter-in-law, a brother David WILSON who resides on a farm near Athens, a sister Mrs. Aletha     CARRITHERS of near Argos, two nieces and two nephews.

                The funeral services will be held from the Christian Church at the corner of Eleventh and Madison Streets at 2 p.m. Sunday with the Rev. John WALLENBURG pastor of the church       in charge.  Burial will be made in the Odd Fellows cemetery.

                The host of friends of Frank S. TRACY were stunned today as the news of the sudden demise of this well-known and highly respected citizen spread rapidly throughout this   community.  Mr. Tracy passed away at his home 219 West 11th street at 5:10 o’clock a.m. Monday morning, following a heart attack which was suffered only a few moments prior to       his death.

                During the forepart of last week Mr. Tracy had required the services of a physician, however, his condition was not regarded as grave and at no time was he unable to follow his   usual pursuits in the civic and social life of this vicinity.  The deceased, who was 71 years of   age, was a retired U. S. rural route carrier, he having served 26 years as distributor of mail on Route 5 of the Rochester rural carrier system.  Mr. Tracy was retired in December of 1930.

                Frank S., son of James and Kathryn TRACY was born in Miami county, Indiana on November 3rd, 1861.  On April 15th, 1886 he was united in wedlock to Elmanda A.      POWELL, the ceremony being performed at Macy, Indiana.  For a period of 24 years he    followed the profession of a public school teacher in both Miami and Fulton counties.  In the   year of 1903 he took up his residency in Rochester where he has since resided.  Mr. Tracy was      a member of the Methodist Episcopal church of this city, where for a long number of years he served as teacher of the men’s Bible class, superintendent of the church school and a member       of the official board of this religious organization.

                Mr. Tracy in his quiet and unpretentious manner lived a life which was in complete accord with the principles which he so ably and clearly presented to his scholars in both religious and educational endeavors.  In speaking of the exemplary characteristics of the deceased, postal employees today state that their retired fellow employee’s life was a living portrayal of all      those essentials which go to make a true, Christian citizen.

                Survivors are the widow, Mrs. Elmanda TRACY, two daughters, Flavilla [TRACY], of South Bend; Mrs. Ruth RICHARDSON, of Peoria, Ill.; three grandchildren, Kline TRACY,   Dean Edgar [RICHARDSON] and Maryanna RICHARDSON; a brother Noah TRACY, of    Macy; a sister Mrs. Elvira HOOVER, of Akron; and several nieces and nephews.

                Deloise Ray NEHER, aged 12, died at Woodlawn Hospital at 7:30 o’clock Friday evening from internal injuries which he received Wednesday afternoon when a cement header fell on       him while he was playing.  The lad was a pupil in the sixth grade of the Li coln school    building.

                Neher suffered his injuries while playig with his friend John TAYLOR.  Last year a garage at 606 Main street had been remodeled.  During the remodeling a cement header which     had been used over a door of the garage was replaced by one of lighter material.

                The header had been placed on end against the garage building.  The end of the header which weihed over 1000 pounds had been placed on a piece of wood.  Deloise and his friend  decided the piece of wood on which the header was resting was needed in the construction of a


minature house which they were building.

                Each of the lads tugged at the piece of wood several times in an effort to move it from under the heavy piece of cement.  Neher jerked the piece of wood with sufficient force as to     cause the header to topple over onto him.

                The heavy piece of concrete struck the lad in the abdominal region breaking his pelvs and injuring him internally.  Death was caused by a bursted bladder.  Doctors from the first had despaird of his life.  The lad was rational up to the time of death.  One of his last requests that   his playmates be permitted to visit him in the hospital was granted.

                The deceased was born on May 7, 1921.  He had attended the public schools of this city wher he was liked by all of his teachers and school mates.  He was a member of the Church of  God and a regular attendant at the Sunday School.

                Funeral services were held at the Christian Church in Argos this afternoon for Mrs. David LOLOMOUGH, aged 75, who died at her home in that city Saturday morning foillowing       several strokes of paralysis.  Rev. Hiley BAKER pastor of the church was in charge.  Burial     was made in the Maple Grove cemetery at Argos.  Mrs. Lolomough’s death came on the eve of  her 60th wedding anniversary which was to have been celebrated Wednesday.  Her nine children       had made preparations for celebrating the event  The deceased was born near Silver Lake on       June 23, 1857.  She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs James McCLANAHAN  After her     marriage she moved to Argos and had lived in that vicinity since that time.

 

                Mrs. Robert RICKMAN, aged 68, committed suicide at her home at 7:30 [sic] Indiana Avenue early this morning by drinking carbolic acid.  Despondency over continued ill health     and impending blindness are given as the cause for the act by Mrs. Rickman’s relatives.

                The body was found by Mr. Rickman lying on the living room when he came into his home shortly after 1 o’clock this morning after he had been called to the home of a sick friend neary. Mr. Rickman called a docor who was unable to save Mrs. Rickman’s life.

                Mrs. Rickman had been in ill health for several years  Amost two years ago she started  to become blind.  All efforts to save her eyesight failed.   Last spring Mrs. Rickman had one of


her eyes removed in an effort to save the sight in the other.

                Mrs. Rickman had become so blind that it was necessary for her to hold to different things in order to be able to get around.  Her husband had stretched a wire from the steps of the home to a tree in the yard under which he placed a large chair so that she would be able to rest.

                While it will never be known exactly just how Mrs. Rickman committed suicide it is thought that she swallowed the poison while sitting in the chair in the yard and then followed along the wire nto her home  The bottle which had contained the acid was found in the yard      near the chair.

                Just how Mrs. Rickman obtained the poison will also probably never be learned.  Her suicide however was not unexpected as she had threatened to end her life on other occasions   during periods of despondency.  Coroner Herbert ZIMMERMAN was called and conducted an inquest.

                Aminta Ellen [ABBOTT] RICKMAN was born o a farm near Logansport in Cass   county on November 15, 1864.  Her parents were John and Anna ABBOTT.  She has been a resident of this city since she was a young girl.
