MICHAEL WAGNER, MRS. SHERIFF’S DEPUTY SERVING DIVORCE PAPERS SAVES WOMAN FROM SUICIDE’S DEATH SECOND ATTEMPT OF MRS. MICHAEL WAGNER TO END LIFE NEAR PROVES SUCCESSFUL YESTERDAY; TURNED ON GAS JETS ON IN HOUSE TO FIND DEATH SOLACE Rescued from a suicide’s death by Deputy Sheriff Joseph Cisler yesterday when the officer found her unconscious from gas when he visited the home to serve papers in divorce proceedings instituted by her husband, Mrs. Michael Wagner, residing at 623 Jay street, was removed to the hospital last evening and will survive, it was said today. The attempt of Mrs. Wagner to end her life was the second in two days it is said. The Wagners have not lived happily for some time it is said and the climax of their troubles came Thursday when the husband who conducts a garage on Washington street, declared that he would institute action for a divorce. Mrs. Wagner is said to have seized a bottle, supposedly containing carbolic acid, and to have partaken of a part of the contents. A physician who was summoned said the woman had not injured herself and it was believed that she had attempted to frighten her husband to desist from his avowed intention of seeking a divorce. Yesterday however M. Wagner filed a complaint in divorce proceedings and the papers were given to Deputy Sheriff Cisler for service. Whether Mrs. Wagner knew of her husband’s action is not known but when Deputy Cisler reached the Wagner home he received no response to repeated rappings for admission and finally tried the door which opened as he turned the knob and as the officer entered the house he was almost overcome by the gas fumes which filled the room. Hurriedly opening the windows Deputy Cisler closed two gas jets which he found open and later discovered a third which he also closed. Entering another room the officer found Mrs. Wagner unconscious on a couch and carried the woman into the hall where the open door gave her air. Pedestrians passing were ordered to summon a physician while Mr. Cisler endeavored to revive the woman without success. Upon arrival of a physician a hurried call was sent for the pulmotor and after a half hour’s work Mrs. Wagner showed signs of returning consciousness and the ambulance was called and the woman taken to the hospital, where her condition while serious is said not to be dangerous. The Wagners came here some time ago and have resided at 62 Jay St. It is said that the couple have had frequent disagreements which led to discussion of a separation and it is presumed that the trouble preyed upon Mrs. Wagner and that her mind became affected. According to the physician attending Mrs. Wagner, the timely arrival of Deputy Cisler is all that saved her life as she would probably have succumbed to death within a few minutes. Deputy Cisler was made ill by the gas. July 17, 1915, Manitowoc Daily Herald

G.O. WATTS, REV. REV. WATTS FORMER RESIDENT HERE TAKES OVER NEW PARISH IN MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE THIS WEEK Paper of Home Town Gives Pastor an Extended Write-up and Wishes Him God Speed in His New Field In taking charge of the Holy Trinity church, at Memphis, Tenn. The Rev. G.O. Watts, pastor at Jackson, Tenn., is given an extended write up in the southern city newspapers which will be read with considerable i nterest by his many friends in this city, where he was born and reared. "Rev. Watts has been rector of St. Luke's Episcopal church of Jackson, since 1911 and has been a powerful factor in the maintenance of a high standard of morality and religion in that city," says the paper. "His departure," continues the news paper, "will be a grievous loss to the city as well as to his congregation. It will be difficult for St. Luke's vestry to secure another rector who will in every respect fit so well into the need and purposes of that church." The paper wishes Rev. Watts God speed in his new field, feeling that as a young man his opportunities for service and advancement in the church will be greater in Memphis, perhaps, than it would have been had he elected to remain in Jackson.

JOHN WEINER GRABBED LIVE WIRES, GOT SHOCK John Weiner, Employe of House Moving Crew Gets Bad Scare Held prisoner by two live electric light wires which he had grabbed in an attempt to raise them to clear the roof of the house John Weiner, an employe of Kennedy's house moving had an exciting time for minutes this morning and aroused the neighborhood in vicinity of 16th and Clark St. where the crew is at work. Weiner was on the roof of the building which had to pass under several wires of the Electric Lighting Co. system, and he had been warned by Mr. Kennedy not to take hold or lift two of the wires at one time but Weiner thoughtlessly failed to heed the warning, after he had raised one of the wires to the roof of the building, grabbed a second and was held prisoner. Fortunately the voltage in the wires at this location is low being 220 volts and was insufficient to seriously hurt Weiner. The man, however, let out a scream that could be heard for blocks and continued his cries until Mr. Kennedy hurrying through the house climbed onto the roof and pulled the man's hands from the wires, breaking the circuit. Weiner was completely overcome and a call was hastly(sic) sent in for a physician but after the man had been worked upon a short time, he was able to leave the roof and recovered and returned to his work. Weiner was given a bad scare and his screams could be heard for blocks and attracted a large crowd. Mr. Kennedy has an arrangement with the Lighting company by which electricians of the company take care of the wires where it is necessary to raise them to admit a building to pass under but Weiner undertook to handle the wires in order to obviate delay in the work and got a shock.

WM. WEISS 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. The Colbecks are quite respectable people, industrious and intelligent. Manitowoc Pilot, Mar. 15, 1894

She summoned a physician. Soon the boy's lips and tips of his ears started to turn black. Doctors and his parents worked over the boy all Saturday night and Sunday when he gave signs of slowly recovering from the effects of the poison. Kept Awake All Night Under orders from the physician the patient was kept awake all night for fear that if he dozed, the poison might prove fatal. Today little Dick Wernecke was up and about the Newton farm and is again partaking of meals. Manitowoc Herald Times, Tuesday, June 16, 1936 p.2


MR. WERNER A BABE IN THE WOODS Last Thursday the stage driver on the Green Bay & Two Rivers mail route, while on his way to this place, found a little boy, only three years of age, in the woods, just over the county line.

The stage driver picked him up and carried him to the house of Mr. Werner, which was near at hand, where he was tenderly cared for.

He was found more than five miles from his home and although the whole neighborhood was out in search of him, they did not anticipate that he could have wandered so far away, and the little fellow would undoubtedly have perished had not the stage driver came across him when he did.

CLARA WHITCOMB A Runaway Last Thursday a party from this village, consisting of Mrs. L. Mann, Miss Julia Pierpont, Miss Clara Whitcomb and a boy for a driver, went to Manitowoc for a ride. Just as they were entering that city the horses attached to their carriage were frightened at some object in the street, and became unmanageable dashing madly down Sixth-street in the direction of the river. The brave little fellow who did the driving, although unable to check the speed of the frightened animals, succeeded in reining them into a pile of corded wood just before they reached the river. Had he not done so they would have undoubtedly ran off the dock into the water, and all perhaps, would have drowned. As it was, however, when they came in contact with the pile of wood, the sudden stop smashed the carriage and threw the ladies violently out otherwise seriously injuring them. The party came home on an evening train, decorated with court-paster but in tolerable good spirits notwithstanding their mishap. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), June 1, 1875

JOSEPH WILHELM Joseph Wilhelm, who was brought here from Cato Saturday for examination into his mental condition, was released Monday and returned home. Wilhelm was injured five years ago by having his head struck with the point of a plow while he was stooping to extricate it from being caught in a root.

MARY WILHELM FRANKLIN GIRL, JILTED, ASKS FOR $5000 HEART BALM MARY WILHELM, 27, SUES FRANK REMIKER, 45, FOR BREACH OF PROMISE TO MARRY Five thousand dollars is the valuation which Mary Wilhelm a town of Franklin girl, places upon her affections in a suit instituted today against Frank Remiker, a wealthy farmer of the same town who is alleged by the girl to have failed to fulfill a promise made to wed her. Papers in the action, alleging breach of promise, were filed in circuit court and the case will come up at the June term next week. In her complaint Miss Wilhelm, who is 27, says that she was engaged to Remiker, but that the wedding date was deferred from time to time by the defendant and that he has now refused to marry her and she asks the court to award her judgment in the sum of $5000 for her blighted hopes. Remiker is a prominent farmer of Franklin and a bachelor, aged 43. It is alleged by the plaintiff that she became engaged to him nearly three years ago and fully expected to be his wife and had prepared for the marriage but that Remiker postponed the event from time to time until last fall when following the birth of a child, he refused to fulfill his alleged promise and has continued in that refusal. The action is the first breach of promise suit instituted in the Manitowoc county courts in several years and will attract considerable interest, both parties being well known in the section in which they reside. The plaintiff is the daughter of a well known farmer of the town. Atty. A. P. Schenlan appears for Miss Wilhelm and Atty. Isaac Craite for the defendant.

HENRY WILLERT Struck by Lightning. The brilliant light seen west of this place last Wednesday morning was caused by the burning of a large barn belonging to a farmer named Henry Willert. The barn was struck by lightning and entirely consumed, together with all its contents of grain, hay, etc. A valuable span of horses, fortunately, were rescued. Two large hogs, which were in the barn, were burned. The barn was a large one, 40x60, but was insured for $600. The barn contained upwards of twenty-five tons of hay, on which there was an insurance of $100. This the total amount of insurance, while the loss is estimated at $900. Seven years ago, during the memorable forest fires of 1871, Mr. Willert's house and barns, upon the same farm, were entirely consumed by fire. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), Oct. 1, 1878

FRED WINKLEMANN AFTER TEN LONG YEARS. Fred Winklemann, Who Disappeared From Here In 1890, Is Located at Fargo, N. D. IS A PROSPEROUS FARMER Manitowoc Man Visits West and Meets The Long Absent One – Winklemann Has Been Successful Since Leaving Here. After the absence of ten years, during the greater part of which time relatives have mourned him for dead, Fred Winklemann has been located and may return here. Late in the Fall of 1890 Winklemann left his home in the city and since that time, although every effort has been made to locate him, nothing was known of his whereabouts and he had been given up as dead. Last week while on a visit at Fargo, North Dakota, Theo. Torrison learned of a Fred Winklemann residing there and upon inquiry and a visit to his home found him to be the missing Manitowoc man. Winklemann is engaged in farming and welcomed Mr. Torrison warmly, expressing solicitude for the welfare of his relatives here. For several years he has been located at Fargo and has been quite successful. He made no excuse for his long silence but expressed his intention of returning here in the near future. Winklemann is well remembered by Manitowoc people, having always made this city his home. He is a brother to Henry Winklemann, who is promoting the building of a hotel near Silver Lake and has several sisters in Milwaukee. Communication between the brother(sic) has been opened and it is anticipated that a reunion will soon take place. At the time of his departure Winklemann was not in the best of circumstances financially, but is now reported to be on “easy street” so far as finances involve. May 28, 1901, Manitowoc Daily Herald

JOSEPH WOIDA Joseph Woida is on trial in the municipal court this afternoon, to answer to a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm. Miss Josie Skubal is the complainant. It seems to be a case wherein the accused found that ardent affections were wholly unrequited and in his disappointed love he over-stepped the bounds of judicious conduct. The case is still in progress as we go to press. Oct. 19, 1898, Manitowoc Daily Herald ******** In the trial of Joseph Woida in the municipal court yesterday afternoon the defendant was found guilty of simple assault. Several witnesses were examined, as were also the principals in the case and the weight of testimony did not sustain the charge of intent to do great bodily harm. But the evidence showed a clear case of assault and battery and Woida was given the option of paying $15 and costs or serving 30 days in jail. As the cost amounted to $27, he chose the time sentence and is now serving out his time. Oct. 21, 1898, Manitowoc Daily Herald

MR. WOOD Coal Hole Catastrophe. The coal hole in F. Rudolph's sidewalk was left open last Friday night and proved a veritable "dead cave," to some of our peacable citizens. First in order came Uncle Wood. He was walking along leisurely, when his meditations were somewhat abruptly interrupted by a sudden descent, as it were. He saved himself from a complete tumble by getting hold of the sidewalk. Resting his elbows on the boards, while his body and feet were dangling beneath, he surveyed the surrounding scenery a while, and then by some unexplained gymnasic feat, got himself out of the blessed hole, with no further damages than a few slight brusies, though he claims "his back was nearly broken." Mr. Wood, in order save others from a similar accident, placed a dry good box over the aperture and then retired. A short time afterwards Mr. Louis Simon, on his way home, noticed this box, and thinking some boys had placed it there for hoax, determined to remove it by kicking. It was like killing two birds with one stone. The kick sent the box into the gutter and Mr. Simon into the basement below. He landed on a pile of kindling wood and empty oyster cans and was considerably bruised; so severe were his injuries, in fact, that it was some time before he was able to stand and walk home with the aid of a friend. Mr. Smallfeldt, the south side night watchman, was the next victim. He was seen on his beat about midnight, when suddenly he disappeared in the cavernous depths below. Smallfeldt was not seriously hurt, as he landed squarely on his feet. But the trouble he had was to get out of the basement. For about half an hour he groped his way under the sidewalk, trying to find some door or opening. He finally succeeded and before leaving that part of the city, took particular care to securely cover the hold. It is rumored that several of the boys met the same fate as the above, but they have kept quiet and not given themselves away. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, October 11, 1881 P. 1
