Cline, who lived in a shack near the Milwaukee tracks, was never heard from. A power line, from which wires were hanging to the ground, are believed to have caused the man's death.

It rolled over before the blazing onslaught. With prize in hand Glen proudly sallied into the farmyard to show the farmer what a hunter he was, The farmer looked the game over, assessed one dollar, and kept the duck. It was one of his tame flock. During Uie cold rainx and a »ix inch snow rnotorUts got a taste of the new vehicle law which is mandatory in the uae of the arm out the window.
