FOUND DAZED, TOT REVIVED AFTER 2 DAYS' STIMULANTS Little Karen Chrislensen, daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Morton Ihristenscn, farmers from south of Algona, is recovering nicely from the effects of eating sleeping tablets, last Friday. The little girl, only a bit over two years of age, was unconscious for 24 hours, last Friday and Saturday, until efforts of physicians and nurses at the Kossuth hospital brought her out of her coma. About noon, Friday, the Chris- tensens were alarmed when two of. the older boys in the. family of five children, came in telling their parents that Karen could hardly walk. The parents found Karen in a dazed condition, and were at a loss to understand it, until they .finally found after quizzing the older children that some sleeping pills had been found in a jacket pocket and eaten by Karen. The Christensens themselves have always been extremely careful about pills and medicines, and the pills Karen found in a jacket were those of a friend who had left the jacket within reach at the Christensen place. When the physician summoned knew exactly what was causing the child's unconscious state, a treatment of stimulants was begun and the little girl finally rallied into consciousness, Saturday, from her very serious condition: The little girl "was. released from the Kossuth hospital, Sunday. SOUTH OF WE||Y? V W«Sle'y: Spontaneous" combustion in Jiay is believed to have been the cause 'of a fire, last Friday noon, which destroyed the large bai*n on the J. P. Studer farm south of Wesley. " Hired men working in "the vicinity discovered the blaze. The Wesley fire department was called and helped in preventing a spread of the flames from the barn to other buildings or an adjacent oats field. Had the oats been dry instead of somewhat damp from ;a recent rain, the oats field might have been a total loss. A large quantity of baled and loose hay and some harness was destroyed, but a pony, two calves and another set of harness were saved. The barn, was old but good. It was insured for $1,000. Brother Of Mr«. Ruth Dutton Dies Mrs. Wallace McArthur and her mother MVs. Ruth Dutton left Sunday for Alden, 111., to attend the funeral of the letter's brother E. C. Worden, 93, who died Friday in Detroit, Mich. Mr. Worden would have been 94 had he lived until August 14. He was the oldest and Mrs. Dutton is the youngest of their family.
