The Ford coupe which she was driving, and a Chevrolet touring car driven by Paul Albrecht, and also occupied by Alvin Voss, both of Meeme, collided. Mrs. Fick was traveling south on the town road and Mr. Albrecht was going west on highway 32. When she came near the crossing of the highway, Mrs. Fick stopped to let off her grandson, Walter Bub, and she had driven half way across the intersection when the rear wheel of her car was struck by the Chevrolet, which came over the top of the hill. The young men did not see Mrs. Fick until it was too late to avoid the accident. The crossing cannot be seen before reaching the top of the hill. Mrs. Fick was thrown against the door of her coupe by the force of the impact which caused it to open and permit her to be thrown out of the car. Her feet caught in the door and she was dragged over the ground when the car swung around, striking her head on a stone. Physicians from Kiel and Manitowoc authorities were called while Mrs. Fick was taken to the farm home of John Voss, Jr., where she died a short time later. A coroner’s jury, which was drawn Monday, and will be called on to fix the blame for the death of Mrs. Fick, consists of the following: Rud. Greve, Geo. Meyer, Erwin Boeselager, Edgar Burkhardt, Alb. Wagenknecht, and C. A. Wallman. Monday afternoon they were taken by Sheriff Ed. Kasten to view the remains of Mrs. Fick at the Meiselwitz undertaking parlors, and from there they went to the spot where the accident occurred. They also viewed the two wrecked cars that were in the accident. The inquest will be held Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the court house at Manitowoc.

FLYNN, PATRICK The subject of the subjoined clipping from the Manitowoc Pilot is the father of Capt. James Flynn, of this city: Patrick Flynn died at his home in this city on Saturday last at the advanced age of 88 years. He was born in Ireland in the stirring period of 1798, but came to America while quite young. He settled in Two Creeks when that town numbered but few inhabitants and the “Flynn homestead” was a pleasant place for neighbors to congregate, and even the traveler often enjoyed the hospitality of the generous family. Mr. Flynn was always a man of great physical strength and his exceptionally good habits brought him a green old age. He was a man of superior intelligence and his love for history was almost intense in its earnestness. No other topic of conversation gave him more pleasure and when in the company of persons whom he thought conversant with historical matters he always sought to increase his store of knowledge. Some years ago he sold his farm in Two Creeks and took up his residence in Two Rivers. Later he lived in Manitowoc. He was the father of a large family, Mrs. B.H.M [illegible, possibly Muesch] of this city, is one of his daughters. His funeral took place on Monday.

These cases have been reported all over the civilized world, the first reports came apparently from Italy and Austria. In England it was made the object of extensive investigation by the Local Government Board. In this country, there have been reports in literature from widely separated places. It is a new disease and this was the first one in this vicinity. The first symptoms were that she had neuralgia and pains in the head; after several days brain symptoms manifested themselves. The attending physician recognized the nature of her illness when called for consultation on Friday, and called in an Appleton physician who also diagnosed the case as the sleeping sickness, he having a few cases of this nature. Everything in medical power was done to revive her but of no avail. She rallied at times until early Monday when she passed to her early reward. Mrs. Joe. Gilsdorf, nee Margaret Denzel, was born August 5th, 1893, at Kaukauna. At the age of four months her parents moved to St. John.

She is survived by her husband, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nick Denzel, and and one sister, Mary.
