FOUND FROZEN - WM. ELLIS, of Hartland, a farmer aged 35 years, went to the village of Bonduel a week ago last Saturday for the purpose of paying his threshing bill. While there he became intoxicated and Sunday went to Fullerton's mill where he continued his spree. Late in the evening he left the saloon with several companions and after keeping in company with them for a distance he became offended and left them saying he would go home alone. Nothing further was heard of him until Tuesday morning when his body was found lying in the snow on an old and seldom frequented "tote road," whither he had wandered and lain down in a drunken stupor.
