Fred G. Preiser Becomes Husband of Miss Maude E. Safford

A quiet but very pretty and happy wedding, took place at the home of J.L. Safford, when his sister, Miss Maude, became the wife of Fred G. Prieser last Monday evening.  Only the immediate family were invited, the Rev. Doane Up-John conducting the ceremonies.

Mr. Prieser, who claimed Miss Safford as his bride, came here from Milwaukee and is employed as manager of the plumbing department of the Schweers Hardware Company.  He is a gentlemanly and popular young man who, during his stay in Shawano, has gained the esteem of all whom he has met.  His bride is not only popular, but a pretty, tidy and honorable young lady who hold the utmost respect of her every friend and acquaintance.

Miss Lena Nenemier, of Gresham, acted as the bridesmaid and William Otto, of Birnamwood, stood up to encourage Mr. Prieser as he passed from the realm of single blessedness to marital bliss.  Mr. and Mrs. W. I. Safford and children, of Green Bay, were out-of-town guests at the wedding and also among the number who showered presents and well-wishes upon the bridal pair.

Following the ceremony, there was a short season of general enjoyment.  Music, social repartee and feasting were indulged in until the time arrived for the evening train when Mr. Preiser and bride departed for Milwaukee for a visit with the former’s parents.

At the conclusion of the honeymoon the young couple will return to Shawano to settle down to the enjoyments of happy wedded life after first greeting their many friends.

Little Son of Stephen Popelke, in Town of Waukechon, is terribly maimed.

While Playing in Tall Grass tot is struck by Sharp Blades and Foot Cut off—other one nearly severed.

A most distressing Accident which shocked the surrounding neighborhood occurred Thursday evening of last week at the home of Stephen Popelke, in the town of Waukechon, where one of his little boys, aged two and one-half years, was run over by a moving machine and frightfully maimed.

The little victim of the terrible mishap was playing in the tall grass about the house, while an older brother was operating a mowing machine and engaged in cutting the grass.  The driver on the machine had mowed several swaths and neared the spot where his little brother was playing.  His mind was centered upon the horses and without noticing the little child, who was almost hidden by the tall grass, he ran the machine squarely upon the tot and caused the sharp knives to fasten themselves into the little feet.

The horror of the older boy may be imagined when, upon jumping from the seat of the machine and picking up the injured child, he found one of his feet entirely severed and the other hanging only by the tendons.  Frightened almost into spasms he yelled to his parents, who rushed from the house to the scene of the accident.  They were nearly overcome with horror upon learning the awful nature of the mishap, but picked up the injured little fellow and hurried with him into the house.

With all possible haste Dr. H.W. Partlow, of this city, was driven to the Popelke home.  Upon entering the room where the little victim laid the Doctor could scarcely repress a thrill of horror when he saw the amputated foot lying on the window sill besides the child’s bed.  Hastily dressing the bleeding stump Mr. Partlow paid his attention to the other mangled member.  It was terribly gashed and the bones crushed and at first the Doctor thought that amputation would be necessary.  However with his usual skill he dressed the foot in the hope of saving it and joined in the joy of the parents of the child when on Monday morning he found that his heroic treatment of the injury had been successful and that amputation would not be required.

The Doctor says that an artificial foot can be secured for the child with which he will be enabled to walk handily.  The report was circulated that both of the little boy’s feet were taken off, but owing to Dr. Partlow’s skill the one foot will be saved and the child will not be crippled to any extent comparable with that of having lost both feet.

Fred Schenk, Well-Known Resident of Seneca, Accused of Being Loony

Charged with being crazy, Fred Schenk, a well known farmer residing near Tilleda in the town of Seneca, was put through a “sweating” ordeal before County Judge Jaeckel, Tuesday afternoon which culminated in a farce rather than any definite decision to determine the accused man’s mental condition.  However, the case was adjourned until today, when a jury will attempt to come to a conclusion as to his responsibility.

Schenk has a wife and eight children.  The dove of peace seems to have fought shy of the Schenk domicile, and married life to the wife and husband has not been attended of late by the tranquility and happiness usually allotted to a well mated pair.  A short time ago Mrs. Schenk started a divorce proceeding against her husband, and the present charge of insanity registered against him is an aftermath of the divorce action.

It is the claim of Mrs. Schenk that her spouse does not retire of nights to slumber peacefully as a well-regulated husband should do, but instead he takes nocturnal prowls about the premises with a loaded gun seeking an imaginary foe to puncture with leaden pellets.  Mrs. Schenk avers that the nightly shirt-tail promenades indulged in by her spouse are wholly unwarranted and by no means conducive to her happiness or equanimity.  She also declares that she is afraid she will be made the target for a bullet from his gun, and to protect herself from such a danger she sought to have her husband’s mental faculties diagnosed.

Drs. Partlow and Ragan had Schenk in the “sweat box” for two hours, but were unable to reach a conclusion as to whether he is sane or insane.  He charges his wife with unfaithfulness, and the physicians say that if there are reasonable grounds for the serious allegations made by the man he is justified in seeking to retaliate and, therefore, of sound mind.  Mrs. Schenk declares she has not been unfaithful and insists that her husband is the victim of a vagary which has so strained his mind as to cause him to harbor wild hallucinations.

It is Schenk’s claim that his wife’s parents are unfriendly to him and encourage his wife to make his life miserable.  On the other hand Mrs. Schenk declares her husband is abusive and that he has repeatedly attacked her.  She also alleges that Schenk recently took a club and chased his own mother from his premises because she told him he was crazy.  The case is a domestic mix-up that will no doubt present some vexing phases to the jury.  The physicians who examined Schenk stated they were unwilling to pronounce him insane on the evidence produced Tuesday, and it is doubtful if any further evidence will be brought out to show that he is mentally irresponsible.  When asked Tuesday if he was “bugs,” Schenk emphatically said “no!”  It appears that jealousy is responsible for the man’s strange actions.

Attorney M.J. Eberlein is representing Schenk and H.G. Drier is retained by Mrs. Schenk.  District Attorney Werner is looking after the state’s interest in the proceedings.

Threatened to Kill His Divorced Wife

 

Carl Berndt, Residing in Town of Hartland, Landed in Jail, on Serious Charge

 

Charged with having threatened to kill his wife, Carl Berndt, a farmer, residing in the town of Hartland, was on Monday evening landed in the county jail to wait a hearing which will be held tomorrow before Justice Bold.  Constable Meyers of the ton of Wescott arrested Berndt on a warrant sworn out by Mrs. Brandt.

About a year ago Mrs. Berndt secured a divorce from her husband.  An agreement was reached whereby the woman held the farm on which the couple had resided and her husband received $500 in cash.  Being given to bibulous habits, Berndt, it is said spent all of his money for liquor, and since separating from his wife he has lived a wild and unhappy life.

With the last few dollars of the amount he had received as his stipend in the divorce action Berndt purchased a revolver and since the second day of September, Mrs. Berndt alleges he has been skulking about her premises with the evident intention of shooting her.  The woman, in making the charges against her husband, swore that he threatened to kill her and for this reason she sought to have him apprehended.

Upon reaching the Berndt farm, Constable Meyers, in company with Mrs. Berndt’s son, went to the barn where they found Berndt in hiding.  Picking up a big stick of wood Berndt attempted to strike his son, but was overpowered by the constable and placed under arrest.  He was brought at once to the city and arraigned before justice Bold, who adjourned the case until Friday to enable the witnesses to be present.  The prisoner made no request to be given his liberty on bond, stating that his money was gone and that he had no friends too whom to look for aid.

It was learned by the constable while in Hartland that Berndt pawned his revolver at a saloon a few days ago.  It is thought his craving for liquor caused him to give up the weapon.  His money being gone he had no other way of purchasing drinks.

Shortly after the divorce action, which separated Berndt from his wife a proceeding in lunacy was entered against him.  He was discharged; however, as it was found that his mind had only been temporarily affected as the outcome of over indulgence in intoxicants.  It is said that prior to the divorce the unhappy man was sent to jail for threatening to kill his wife.

Berndt is said to be an industrious and well liked man when sober.  Drink has been his downfall and the remorse which overtook him when his wife secured her divorce has led the man to become desperate.

Judge Jaeckel Takes Little One from Stepmother, Giving Her to Grandfather

 

Beaten by her step-mother because she had been suspected of the theft of ten cents, little Elsie Meyer, daughter of Jacob G. Meyer, of Cecil, was relieved of further fear from inhuman treatment by County Judge Jaeckel, who on Monday awarded the custody of the child to her grandfather, Wm. Herm, who interceded in the little one’s behalf by bringing action against the parents.

Mr. Meyer had several children by a former wife, among them being Hulda and Elsie, and since his marriage to the present Mrs. Meyer other children have come into his household.  The stepmother of the first Meyer children has been abusive, it was alleged and when she gave little Elsie a cruel beating for the supposed theft of ten cents which Mrs. Meyer placed upon a table, the grandfather sought to have her taken from the stepmothers custody.  It was brought out in court that the child had taken the money, but declared she had no intention of stealing it.  Mrs. Meyer found the coin in a drawer where it was placed.

Marks on the body of the child revealed that she had been severely punished and this in large part caused Judge Jaeckel to give her over to the grandfather’s care.

When Miss Sarah King and Mr. Albert M. Dixon were married

 

A very pretty wedding took place Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Eastman King, when their daughter Miss Sarah, was united in bonds of matrimony to Mr. Albert Montgomery Dixon of Thomasville, Georgia.  It was a little after five when Mrs. Gilbert Knapp played the wedding march and the contracting parties  marched into the parlor.  Rev. Mr. Doane Up-John, of St. John’s Episcopal Church, officiated.  Mr. F.A. Eberlein was best man and Miss Ellice Roycroft was bridesmaid.  Mrs. King gave the bride away.  The bride was very charmingly dressed in cream white silk wrap sublime, trimmed with lace; she looked very beautiful and was much admired.  The bridesmaid was dressed in white.  The groom wore the customary black.  The home was pretty decorated with southern ground pine and bamboo vine, as also was the dining room and table.

After the ceremony a very fine supper was served in the dining room, which was enjoyed by all present.  The wedding was a quiet one, only a few relatives and friends in the city being present.

The bride is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. King and has always made her home here.  She is a charming young lady and is greatly admired by all her friends, who regret to see her leave Shawano, but she will be welcomed in her southern home.  Mr. Dixon is very little known in Shawano, but he has spent a month in the city during the past three summers and all who have met him are much impressed with his pleasant manner.  He is a fine young man and has a responsible position as manager of the ice plant there and also has an interest in one or two stores.  He is worthy of the young lady whom he has chosen as life’s partner.

Mr. and Mrs. Dixon left on the eight o’clock train for their southern home, taking with them the best wishes and congratulations of their many friends and were showered with rice at the train.

Joseph Ready and Joseph Asenbrenner Jr. were best men, and the bridesmaids were the Misses Annie Ready and Mary Asenbrenner.  The young couple who were reared here are too well and favorably known for an extended notice in these columns.  It is enough to say everyone is their friend, and the good wishes of all are extended to them.  After the ceremony they received a serenade by the band, whereupon all drove over to the spacious residence of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Asenbrenner.  As was anticipated in my last, the affair was a gala event, and the writer never saw a happier and jollier assemblage of people.  A supply of everything imaginable was provided by mine hosts.  Joseph and his estimable wife, for the inner man, and certainly they knew how to provide for the wants of their guests.  The old residence had been converted into a dance hall and bar where young and old triped the light fantastic until daylight to the splendid music of the Leopolis band and it might be added the music (?) of the ‘Hobos’ but, seriously those fellows were a little on the bum: they were too much inclined to patronize John Pevanka’s stand, and they looked it.  Next time they promise to do better by practicing fully half an hour.  The famed piano thumper was there with both feet: the orators were in evidence, Hons.

Release by Judge Goodland of Edward Roth Brings Gladness to Lad and Mother

 

Concerning the acquittal by Judge Goodland in court at Appleton of Edward Roth, who killed is father in the town of Birnamwood, the Appleton Crescent last week said:

“Her husband having been murdered by her son but a month ago, the cup of sorrow of Mrs. Roth of Eland Junction was overflowing when she attended circuit court here Saturday afternoon, for she expected that her son, the only support she has, would be sentenced to the state penitentiary for murder.  It would be hard to express her joy when her son, an accused murderer, rushed to his mother and told her he had been given his freedom by Judge Goodland.

“The woman’s husband was a degenerate and going home about a month ago while on one of his frequent drunks, he endeavored to not only blow up his home with dynamite but the members of his family as well.  He was a most dangerous man whenever he became drunk and his wife and children were terrified when he threatened to set off a large charge of dynamite

.”The oldest son, Edward Roth, aged 17 years grabbed a gun loaded with bird shot when his father entered the house and told him if he did not leave the premises he would shot him.  In his drunken rage the elder Roth paid no heed to the warning and advanced making ready to blow up the house and kill his family.  Young Roth, realizing that he must prevent the terrible catastrophe, fired at his father, intending to only wound him.  The son was soon arrested and was held in jail at Shawano during the last few weeks, awaiting a hearing, charged with the murder of his father.  He was brought before Judge Goodland Saturday afternoon.  The district attorney of Shawano did not inform the mother that he would attempt to have the boy discharged, not wishing to kindle her hopes.  He filed no information in the case against young Roth and the defendant’s attorney argued to the court that the act was done in self defense.  The motion of the district attorney to the effect that he be allowed to file no information was granted by Judge John Goodland and the boy was given his freedom.

The Roth boy awaited the decision of the court in a cell in the county jail.  He faced the probability of going to state prison for a long term, and was overcome with joy when the sheriff, who brought him to this city, asked him if he would like to go home with his mother.  He could only ring the officer’s hand.  The meeting between mother and son was indeed touching to say the least.  Mrs. Roth awaited him in one of the offices in the court house after the decision of the court.  With a cry of ‘My son, oh, my son,”

She folded the boy to her breast and for several minutes neither was able to speak.

It was a case of homicide, pure and simple, but a most justifiable one, however.  The sheriff of Shawano County who brought the lad here said that the father who was shot was a degenerate, whom the members of the family feared, he having threatened to kill them many times.

Mrs. Roth and her son returned to their home at Eland Junction Saturday night and although mourning the loss of their father and husband, suffice to say they journeyed homeward with a feeling of joy and gladness in their hearts.”

Pockat, Samuel & Anna Schwantes were quietly married last week Tuesday by Pastor Schmidt from Wittenberg (in the groom’s brothers home, or the Pastor is a brother of the groom.)  The groom is from Town Grant and the bride is from Spencer.  They will settle in Town Grant after returning from their honeymoon.
