The Kossuth man was said to have died of monoxide poisoning, according to a coroners jury convened at Fairmont. Foul play was believed at first to have caused his death. He was only 37 years of age, and had gone to Fairmont about a year ago. Prior to that he farmed in Grant township for a number of years'. He served in the army in the recent war, also. Mr. Waterbury is survived by his wife, who resides in Little Rock, Ark., his mother, and six brothers: Elliott of Fairmont, • Ralph of Mankato, Eddie of Fari- 'bault Minn., Russell of .

Mrs. Gerald Hoepner. Reinbeck, wants to know what happened to her gold fish. She bought two fish in Waterloo, 'one a gold fish and one a black tropical fish. When she arrived home,. the. gold , fish had disappeared. The next mornitr', there were 13 fish in the bowl: the black fish and twelve little fish. All's well.that ends well, apparently, but she still wonders what became of the gold fish. Seek Missing Heir. Anyone know Clifford Sinclair? He was last heard of in Storm Lake, about 1938, and has fallen heir to his father's share of an estate left by a wealthy kinsman. So far efforts to locate him have been unavailing.
