JOHN ARNDT MOUTH CAUSES HIM TROUBLE. John Arndt Finds He Can't Play Horse With G.W. Kennedy. John Arndt, the drayman, has about decided that no one can gainsay the old saying "Silence is golden" and he is kicking himself to-day for having failed to remember all about it. Someone told John that such was the case, in fact it was confidentially whispered in his ear, but then he had no desire to consider expences(sic) and as a natural consequence, he simply got it where "the chicken got the axe." He is perfectly satisfied to let well enough alone and the next time he is out looking for trouble, he will no doubt "turn tail" and run. It seems that Arndt has a young son who is not very choice in the language he uses to his superiors. Yesterday the son got gay and G.W. Kennedy, the contractor called him to account. Good, sound advice didn't suit young Arndt and his temper got the best of prudence. Mr. Kennedy allowed himself to be abused until "patience ceased to be a virtue" and he turned loose. He chastised the young man in a rather severe manner and sent him home in a condition that it was almost impossible for his own mother to identify her dutiful son. When Arndt, Sr., returned home in the evening he was much incensed at what he considered the brutal treatment of his son, and without a thought as to the result, he loaded the boy into his wagon and drove to the home of Mr. Kennedy. He demanded admittance and was refused. This "riled" him all the more and he proceeded to relieve himself of a surplus of profanity that had accummulated during the day. He wanted to fight and he was willing to "scrap" at the drop of the hat. Mr. Kennedy endeavored to reason with him and even assured the belligerent John that he would give him satisfaction to-day or any other time, but not in the presence of his own family. This wouldn't go down, no, John wanted blood and he was simply not going to wait for it. He was warned not to approach the house, and when he made a move in that direction Mrs. Kennedy became frightened and slipped out of the rear door to notify an officer. Arndt was taken in charge and locked up over night. This morning a warrant was sworn out by Mr. Kennedy charging him with the use of abusive language. He paid $5.00 and costs, amounting to $10.81, and after a severe reprimand from Judge Craite, he departed sadder but wiser. May 5, 1899, Manitowoc Daily Herald

AUGUST ASCHENBACH KIEL MAN, CRAZED BY DRINK MAKES MURDEROUS ATTACK UPON OFFICER IN VILLAGE JAIL MARSHAL ASCHENBACH NARROWLY ESCAPES DEATH FROM HANDS OF PRISONER WITH WHOM HE IS FORCED TO BATTLE FOR NEARLY AN HOUR IN EFFORT TO SUBDUE HIM. JAIL IS COMPLETELY WRECKED Crazed by drink after an all-day debauch which ended with his commitment to the village jail, Jacob Bender, a Kiel farmer, last night wracked the building and when Village Marshal August Aschenbach attempted to subdue the man, he was attacked and for more than an hour battled with the insane prisoner, narrowly escaping death, having twice been assaulted with a club and an aze wielded by Bender. After a prolonged struggle in which Bender was felled by Aschenbach no less than half dozen times only to return to the attack, the prisoner was finally placed in irons and was brought here late this afternoon and will be arraigned in court. Bender, who is said to be a well-to-do farmer, visited Kiel yesterday and proceeded to take on a Christmas load and late in the afternoon was taken into custody by Marshal Aschenbach and locked up. The man, using an axe, which was in the station, wrecked the interior of the jail, reducing the bunks, chairs and furnishings to kindling wood and then started to cut his way out by smashing the door, but Aschenbach, hearing the noise, appeared on the scene and entered the place with intention of subduing Bender. The crazed man made a rush for Aschenbach, wielding a piece of the broken timber of one of the bunks and Aschenbach was forced to fight to defend himself. Twice Bender's attacks were repulsed and the man felled to the floor only to return to the assault. In his frenzy the crazed man put up a terrific battle and the officer was near death several times when struck by the club wielded by the man. In a final attack Bender grasped the axe with which he had performed deadly execution on the furniture and rushed upon Aschenbach whose hat was knocked from his head by the blow, the axe grazing his scalp. Realizing his danger, the marshal renewed his efforts and by a fortunate blow felled Bender who in falling struck his head on some of the timber from broken bunks and was stunned and the prisoner was placed in irons. Bender was in irons during the night and Marshal Aschenbach left Kiel for this city this morning, arriving here at 3:47 this afternoon. It is not known what charge will be proffered against Bender.

OLE AUBEL CONNUBIAL FELICITY For Fifty Years Mr. and Mrs. Ole Aubel Have Enjoyed It The passing of the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage day was made a memorable occasion for Mr. and Mrs. Ole Aubel, when at the farm home in the town of Cato today they were the victims of a pleasant surprise planned and executed by their seven children, who, in the belief that an event of so great importance, should not pass without suitable recognition had completed the arrangements for a day of rejoicing. Twenty-five invitations to intimate friends of the family had been issued and early in the day the party gathered to offer congratulations and add to the pleasure of the bridge and groom of fifty years. March 12, 1850, the vows were exchanged and although old Father Time has sapped the vigor of their vitality and silvered their locks with the frost of the winter of life, Mr. and Mrs. Aubel are to-day as young in spirit as on the day of their union. Both the bride and groom of half a century are the same age, each three milestones past the number allotted mankind by the prophet. Since 1848 they have been residents of Manitowoc county and in a wide acquaintance are universally loved and respected. They are the parents of eight children and the only cloud which casts a shadow on the horizon of their happiness to-day is the absence of one who has responded to the call of the silent messenger. That Mr. and Mrs. Aubel may enjoy many more years of happiness is the wish of hosts of friends. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Monday, March 12, 1900, Page 1 (NOTE: They are not in the marriage pages)

JOS. AUERMILLER JOS. AUERMILLER RECALLS DAY OF ARRIVAL HERE 48 YEARS AGO It was forty-eight years ago yesterday when Jos. Auermiller, the popular landlord of the Railroad restaurant, corner Thirteenth and Franklin streets, arrived in this city fresh from the highlands of the “Boehmerwald,” being but nineteen years old at the time. He was asked to come here by relatives promising him a lucrative position, he being a musical prodigy in the line of a cornetist. He found, however, that he could fare better at that time following the trade of blacksmith which he had learned in his father’s shop in the old country. When the ship he was on neared New York harbor on the evening of July third, he was amazed at the grand display of fire works in the city, and enquiring the captain of the ship, whose graces he had won on the journey through his musical talent, the why and wherefore, that gent sedately informed him that New York had heard of his (Joe’s) coming and that the pyrotechnical display was all in his honor. Mr. Auermiller is one of the best known residents of this city, and tells this story with much gusto. July 15, 1915, Manitowoc Daily Herald
