HENRY NIENABER Blind Pickerel Takes Refuge in Henry Nienaber's Rubber Boot Lieut. Stahl and Henry Nienaber went fishing yesterday at Hines. They succeeded in capturing a few nice specimens and Mr. Nienaber is credited with a novel experience. Blind pickerel are scarce but they do exist. Mr. Nienaber hooked a pickerel but he couldn't land him. He had on high rubber boots, (we mean Henry, not the pickerel) so he waded in after him. The water was deep and went over the tops of the boots. The fish swam into one of the boots and the captor waded out triumphantly. The pickerel weighed only a pound and it is needless to say was stone blind. This is not a fish story. Manitowoc Daily Herald, May 15, 1899 p.4

ED NORMAN Ed Norman and family had a narrow escape from death last night. Gas escaped from the coal stove in such quantities that the family were all seriously affected. Mr. Norman waked up in the early morning and was dimly conscious that his head was not feeling normal. Shaking off the lethargy which held him he arose and started to investigate. He soon found that the sleeping apartments were all full of gas and that his wife and children were breathing very heavily. He ventilated the rooms and aroused the family. All were under the influence of the deadly vapor but soon recovered. This morning the children were suffering from nausea but will be all right in a short time. Dec. 8, 1898, Manitowoc Daily Herald

GEORGE NORTON EXPLOSION AND NARROW ESCAPE.- About 4 o'clock on Saturday morning, the Steam boiler in Packard's Mill, exploded with a tremendous report, seriously scalding the engineer, George Norton, and tearing the engine house to fragments. The boiler was thrown across the street, a distance of 400 feet, passing between two buildings, and now lies in the rear of one of them. In its passage through the air, it struck a board fence, and a pile of cord wood, scattering them in every direction. The house of Mrs. Ricker, (which the boiler narrowly missed) was damaged by the flying wood and splinters but none of the inmates were injured. Had the boiler struck either of the houses, we should have had to record the destruction of human life, and it is possible that the engineer may not recover. Shortly after the explosion, the Mill caught fire, but the flames were subdued without further damage. October 4, 1855, Manitowoc Tribune

He is resting easy to-day and it is to be hoped that no serious results may attend the accident. Apr. 12, 1899, Manitowoc Daily Herald

MRS. JOSEPH NOWAK WHERE IS SHE? Mrs. Joseph Nowak, of Francis Creek, Leaves Her Home. Mrs. Joseph Nowak, of Francis Creek, has disappeared from her home and no trace as to her whereabouts can be obtained. Shortly after the dinner hour yesterday she placed her sleeping three-weeks' old babe in it's cradle, finished up the dinner dishes, carefully dressed herself for a journey and took her departure. When Mr. Nowak returned home late in the afternoon he was informed that she had left and a search was instituted. The entire night was passed in searching for the missing woman, and up to noon to-day, the quest has proved without result. The family relations have always been of a most pleasant nature and the cause of her disappearance is shrouded in mystery. The only explanation that has been offered is that for a number of weeks she has been ill, and has frequently exhibited signs of despondency, and it is thought her mind may have been affected. The husband is nearly wild and fears that she may have committed suicide. Friends are exerting every effort to find her and the husband has the sympathy of the entire community.

Alderman Hansen, of the First Ward, is an expert in opening safes and furthermore, he is at all times willing to give instructions to anyone who is not proficient in the art.

MELVIN AND LESTER ORTH 13 YEAR OLD LAD PROVES HERO AS HE RESCUES TWO EDWARD SPORER SHOWS RARE PRESENCE OF MIND AND SAVES LIVES OF TWO SMALL TOTS ON THE RIVER The presence of mind of 13-year-old Edward Sporer, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Sporer, N. Tenth street, saved two children from probable death in the river yesterday when the tots while playing in a boat moored at the river bank released the craft and were carried adrift. Young Sporer, hearing the cries of the children, Melvin Orth, aged six, and Lester, five, hurried to the rescue. The two children had been playing about a boat on the bank and thought it would be great sport to get into the river and pushed the boat off, having provided themselves with sticks for paddles. There was a rope in the boat and to this fact and Sporer’s presence of mind, the youngsters probably owe their lives When a distance from the shore the children became frightened and cried for help, Sporer, who lives near, heard the cries and rushing in the river directed the older boy to throw out the rope which Sporer proceeded in getting hold of and pulled the boat to shore. The boat had partially filled with water and ? would probably have cost the children their lives. The Sporer lad assisted the children from the boat and took them to their home at 410 N. Tenth street. The lad is a modest little ? and showed rare presence of mind for someone so young and is (illegible). July 17, 1915, Manitowoc Daily Herald

THEO OSULSON POSTING LAW IS TO BE EFFECTIVE IN MANITOWOC CO. Theo Osulson, Town of Rapids Farmer is Impressed with Edict of Official when He pays Fine Today The posting law, more or less a force in years past, is to be made effective in Manitowoc county, with aid of the amendment passed by the last legislature which places responsibility for observance of the law equally upon the posted person with the saloon man. Theo. Osulson, a town of Rapids farmer, was impressed with the new order of things when he appeared in municipal court this morning and paid a fine of $10 and costs, totaling $13.88, on charge that he, a posted individual, frequented saloons. Osulson was taken from the Straudt hotel by Sheriff Engelbrecht last night when he created a disturbance when refused liquor. He admitted to-day that he had visited the Meyer place at Quay and Eighth also. Under the new law the district attorney may post any resident of the county and Osulson has been posted at Rapids, in this city and other towns of the county. The amendment to the law prohibits a posted person from entering or loitering in a saloon on penalty of fine and imprisonment and Osulson was charged with violation of this act. In the past saloon men have been held responsible under the posting act even though in many cases they might not be acquainted with or know the individual posted and while technically guilty, were not willful violators of the law. The amendment places the responsibility upon the posted person also. District Atty. E.S. Schmitz has issued a number of notices posting persons in various parts of the county and three or four prosecutions have been conducted under the new law.

ANTON OURADA PAID ONLY ONE PREMIUM. Anton Ourada Secured $2000 Life Policy Shortly Before Death. One premium only was collected on the $2000 policy carried by the late Anton Ourada, the Rapids miller, which has just been paid to relatives by the Equitable Life Assurence Company, of New York through the Wisconsin agency. Mr. Ourada secured the policy in September and at that time had no thought but that he would be called upon to pay a full measure of premiums. Within a few weeks, however, he was stricken with illness which proved fatal in a short time. Proofs of death were furnished the company by the administrator of the state and the value of the policy was paid at Probate court Tuesday. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Wednesday, June 1, 1904 P. 1

AUG. OWERT Thieves Caught. Six or seven weeks ago we chronicled several cases of thieving as having occurred one Sunday in the early part of the month of November. Among the sufferers was B. Reinken, who has a store and cigar factory, corner of 8th and Quay streets. Last Monday Mr. Reinken having obtained what he thought sufficient evidence for the purpose, swore out a warrant against two hoble-de-hoys, named respectively Aug. Owert and Carl Damrow. The two boys were arrested and brought before Justice Zinns. When brought up they both plead guilty to the charge of burglary. The manner in which they gained access to the premises was by breaking out a glass in the cellar window, removing the fastenings and entering the house. The boys in talking with their companions bragged of their exploit, and so the matter leaked out, leading to their detection. The amount stolen was about $12.50 first cost, and being within the jurisdiction of a justice of the peace, Mr. Zinns sent the boys to jail for three months. They are about 17 and 19 years old respectively. It is to be hoped that other parties having committed depredations can be caught and punished. Dec. 24, 1874, Manitowoc Tribune
