Last saturday evening the Village of Gunder ten Miles South of Postville suffered a heavy fire loss when the garage of Oscar Nyborg and the general store of Martin Nelson were totally destroyed. As we hear it the fire originated in the Nyborg garage where someone was engaged in putting gasoline in the tank of an engine operating an electric lighting Plant while the motor was in operation. An explosion resulted that fired the garage and the general store of Martin Nelson adjacent both of which were destroyed As the Village is without equipment to fight fire. The fire companies from Elgin and Postville responded with their Gas engines but arrived too late to save any of the property. Four autos some accessories and machinery burned with the garage and the loss is considerable and we understand there is some question re Garding the insurance. Most of the merchandise was taken from or. Nelson s store but his household effects on the second floor were practically All burned. The building was owned by Harold lands Gaard.

Cook meets with a tragic death son of or. And mrs. Bert Cook killed when caught in ferry Cable at Keller Washington. Postville friends will sympathize with or. And mrs. J. A. Cook of Keller Washington in the loss of their son whose tragic death is related in the following excerpt from the san Poil Wash Eagle of May 6th. Merton p. Cook ferryman met instant death on the Clark ferry seven o clock last sunday morning when his body came in Contact with the Cable wheel which apparently was running wild. Or. Cook slept on the boat that night and had crossed several cars after Dawn. was alone at the time of the Accident and no one knows just what happened but it is quite probable that the boat had just left the ferry county Shore and or. Cook had let out the North end Cable in preparing to Cross the Stream and then turned to do something else perhaps to lower the keel or to wind up the South end Cable discovering that the Cable wheel he had just left had broken Loose and of course it would be running at great Speed before he could get to it. In his Rush to Stop the wheel he either missed the foot Brake or his knee gave away throwing his body on the wheel. It is also probable that his body was pinned or deposited on the framework supporting the Wood awning Over the ferry wheels where the wheel sawed a great Hole in his left Side tearing out the ribs lung and liver. The body probably brought the wheel to a dead Stop for a Short time after the body settled onto the wheel it dropped its victim on the floor of the ferry and resumed its Speed until the some sixty feet of Cable was spent. Aroused by the Peculiar action of the boat Albert Eckel saw. From his bed on the porch of the Eckel Home the wheel running wild and knew something serious had happened. The boat was then two thirds of its Way across and drifted to Shore. Cook s body was found lying Between the two wheels horribly mutilated. The Force was so great that one of the spokes of the wheel projected for hand holds and about one and a half inches thick was broken off entirely and several broken Over.
