William Bierstedt, 57, farmer northwest of Burt, died Tuesday night at 11:20 of lockjaw, which arose from an injured finger. Mr. Bierstedt had his left forefinger lacerated and a piece of .flesh torn off in a corn ipicker accident a week ago Friday. He went at once to town, where the wound was treated <by Dr. J. G.

Doctor Clapsaddle immediatel had him put to toed at Lewis Lar sen's. Anaesthetics were adminis tered up to the time he died in a effort to stave off fatal spasm Monday morning at .1 a. m. a spasm set in, but artificial respiration suceeded in bringing him out of it. Tuesday night the disease affected a vital organ, and death followed. Lockjaw is 98 per cent fatal, once it is contracted, but the use of anti- tetanus treatment is almost universally successful in warding off the disease if the treatment is given soon enough after infection following a wound. The disease causes paralysis • of all,muscles in the body. A new treatment is the use of anaesthet- ics, so that the nervous system will not react, and hence the muscles will remain relaxed. Kept Under Anaesthetics. •Uockjaw is a definitely limited disease, in that it will run its nat- oiral course in ten days or two weeks, provided the patient lives that long; but contraction of the •lung muscles or heart muscles causes death either by strangulation or heart attack.

Mr. Heidecker husked more than a ton of corn, throwing . 2095 pounds into his wagon in an hour and 20 minutes. Gleaners picked up 33 pounds left in the field, and he had .13 ounces of husks on a 100-lb. sample. IFor each pound of corn left in the field three .pounds were deducted from gross loads. For the husks Mr. Heideoker lost 16 per cent of the. load. This reduced his net to 1661 pounds. Henry's brother Ernest, also of Lakota, threw 2108 pounds into the wagon, but lost 51 pounds on 'gleanings and 558 pounds on too many husks on the corn he picked. How Deductions Were Figured.
