JOHN CARROLL TOUCHED FOR EIGHTY. John Carroll, a Well Known Young Man of Collins, a Victim of Footpads. MADE A TARGET FOR BULLETS. ???? ????sing Home from this City and Is Held Up by Two Men Near Clarks Mills. Touched for $80.00, a target for bullets and alive to tell the tale. It sounds "fishy" and is certainly a little out of the ordinary, but this is the story told by John Carroll, a popular and well known young man of Collins. Mr. Carroll came to this city Wednesday with a load of porkers which he disposed of to local parties and for which he received the snug little sum of $80.00. He remained in the city until late in the afternoon and started on his homeward trip in a happy frame of mind. He jogged along at a moderate pace, paying little attention to his surroundings and thinking, no doubt, of anything but porkers, when he was awakened from his reverie in a most startling manner-a pistol shot rang out on the stillness of the air and a bullet penetrated his clothing in close proximity to his heart. At the same time a voice of thunder commanded him to halt and two men appeared on the scene. He was obliged to get down from his seat and while one of the footpads held the horses, the other at the muzzle of a revolver, went through Mr. Carrol (sic) in the most approved manner. When fully satisfied that they had relieved him of all his valuables, they told the young man to get a move on himself and drive home. To further emphasize their meaning they fired a parting salute after him and disappered in the woods. The victim hurried home and yesterday Mr. Carroll, Sr., came to town to notify the authorities. District attorney Schmitz has the affair in charge and will probe the matter to the bottom. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, January 21, 1899 P. 1 ******* John Carroll, one of our old settlers, is doing a rushing mercantile business in Boyne City, Mich.

WENZEL CENEFELDT Murder At Kellnersville At about noon at last Sunday Kellnersville, this county, one of the most foul attempts was made to murder a girl by the name of Mary Wachet. She was driving some stock to pasture when some unknown party fired either a gun or pistol at her, the instrument was so close that parts of her underclothing were blackened by the burnt powder. She was shot in the abdomen from the front, and the bullet lodged and is still near the spine. Parties came to this city for aid and Sheriff Bolen, Deputy Sheriff Kruger, Dist. Atty. Schmitz and Dr. Luhman went to the scene of the crime and after making a thorough investigation arrested one Wenzel Cenefelt, of Kossuth, who was brought to this city yesterday after- noon and taken before Justice White. On request of the Dist. Atty. the hearing was adjourned to Friday May 25th at 10 o'clock A.M. The Justice fixed bail at $4000, the person not being able to find same was remandd to jail. Wenzel Cenefelt is a young man about 22 years of age, and does not look like one who would commit such a horrible crime as the one with which he is charged. He is about 5 feet 9 inches tall, slight build, gray eyes, dark hair, has a straight cut mouth with thin lips, a prominent nose and high forehead. He was not very nervous when before the Justice and did not seem to realize his horrible position. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, May 22, 1888 p.5 ******** It is reported that Mary Wachtel, the Kossuth girl who was recently shot, and for whose attempted murder young Cenefeldt has been lying in jail awaiting the result of her wound, has made a confession to her priest to the effect that she shot herself because she had been seduced by a young man of the name of Joseph Decker. This alleged confession, if true, will clear up the mystery that has surrounded her case so long and will set at liberty the young man who has for weeks been confined to jail charged with committing the deed. The girl's recovery is now pronounced certain. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), July 10, 1888

MRS. COLBECK In 1889 Wm. Weiss of Cato left his home apparently for Appleton. He was soon after followed by Mr.[sic] Colbeck of the same town who took one of her children, a little girl with her. It was learned soon after that the couple had eloped. They settled in Minneapolis where they have since lived together. Mrs. Colbeck soon after quitting home regretted leaving her action, but her husband had in the meanwhile secured a divorce and so reconciliation was made impossible. Weiss left a wife and three children whom the town of Cato has been since supporting. Some time ago P.J. Cooney, chairman of Cato, had a warrant sworn out for the arrest of Weiss. Sheriff Stephani secured requisition papers and proceeded to Minneapolis where he arrested Weiss and brought him to this city. Cato has already paid out over $450 for the support of Weiss's family.

MR. COLE THE BADGER STATE MANUFACTURING COMPANY We were quite surprised, the other day, on taking a look through the extensive sash, door and blind factory of the Badger State Manufacturing Co., to behold the extent of the business of this company, and the facilities they have for carrying it on. Of course the immense structure which this company occupies is indicative, in a measure, of the amount of work that is going on within, but one can only fullycomprehend its extent by going through the establishment, as we did, and noting the number of men employed and the number of machines in operation. The internal arrangements of the factory are superb, every machine is of the most approved kind, and each seemed placed in exactly the most proper and convenient position. Mr. Murrey is the ruling spirit within the establishment, and to his care and oversight all the order and regularity which prevails is due. He will permit none but first class work to leave the factory, and for this reason the goods of the Badger State Manufacturing Co. find a ready sale in any part of the country. Indeed, the Company find it difficult to fill all their orders as fast as they come in. Mr. Cole, one of the firm, is the business manager, and the ability with which he has managed the business of the establishment has already made its success a certainty. Manitowoc Co.

JERE COX INFERNAL INCENDIARISM. The Worst Case of All. For some time, the incendiary seems to have taken a rest, but last Wednesday evening he managed to get in his work again. This time the object of his malicious hatred was Jere Cox, as inoffensive and good hearted a man as ever walked the earth. Several weeks ago Mr. Cox found a note placed under the door of his store, containing threats. These threats showed no personal hatred of him, but were made on account of his connection with a prominent business man, for whom he occasionally bought hay and other produce and who lost some of his property last fall through an incendiary fire. But Mr. Cox paid no attention to these threats and pursued the "even tenor of his way." Last Wednesday night, Mrs. Cox, who has been and still is ill, awoke and thought she saw a fire in the store. Arousing her husband he saw immediately that her fears were well founded and rushing out, he extinguished the fire with the aid of some of his neighbors. A window in the store had been broken, and through this the incendiary seems to have made his way and carefully built a fire near the kerosene tank. Before doing his, however, he appropriated to himself some fine cut and plug tobacco, and then skipped, without being detected. While the building itself was not materially injured, Mr. Cox suffers considerable loss on his stock of goods, which are nearly all spoiled. Mr. Cox's residence is outside the city limits, and no blame can be placed on the North side watchman, as the spiteful hostler would like to do. This case, more than any of the previous ones, shows beyond a doubt, that we harbor a most rascally incendiary in our midst, and the authorities ought to take some action in the matter. All persons should be protected in the peaceful enjoyment of their property; that is the object of government. Arson is one of the worst and meanest crimes and the cowardly cur guilty of it, should be fereted out by all means. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, January 10, 1882 P. 1

ISAAC CRAITE Last Sunday afternoon about thirty members of the newly organized Cleveland Club of Mishicott marched out to Hans Boyers' superb ranch, headed by a bugler and the Star Spangled Banner. Each man was disguised in a white plug hat and heavily armed with a stout walking stick. They captured the ranch by one bold assault and then swore in Boyer as commissary. He had to tap about half a dozen of his best cream cheeses to wash down the beer that they had ordered sent out from the village. It was really wonderful to see how much bread and cheese and beer some of those thick waisted burghers could hold. John Terens and the Elder Levenhagen took the prize for abdominal capacity but Isaac Craite would have been awarded first prize if it had not been suspected that he had not fed fair. It was asserted, and with a show of truth, that he had not the room to hold as much as Levenhagen or Terens and therefore it was impossible for him to have consumed as much. But "pshaw!" he said, "a man don't eat with his belly, he eats with his mouth and I have a bigger mouth than either of "em." Still he was ruled out by the committee and he consoled himself with more bread and cheese and beer. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), July 3, 1888

MR. CROCKER RUNAWAY ACCIDENT.- A horse, attached to a light wagon, became frightened night before last and started off on his own hook, throwing the occupants out of the wagon. One of them, Mr. Crocker, struck on his feet and was not injured. His boy, the driver, next fell out carrying the lines with him, they becoming entangled in the wheel, the horse ran into a pile of wood, breaking the wagon, injuring the animal and throwing Mrs. Crocker under his feet. Her escape from death is almost miraculous but she escaped without serious injury, and, so far as we can learn, the boy was not badly hurt. The horse of Mr. Turpin also ran away a few minutes afterward at the same place breaking the wagon but doing no other damage. July 23, 1858 P. 3, The Daily Tribune
