Claiming that the accidental death of Frederick ZINCK of Kaukauna was due to drunkenness, representative of the Atlas Casualty company of Lake Mills appeared in circuit court at Appleton yesterday as defendants in a suit brought by Mollie ZINCK to recover $200 insurance. It was claimed by the plaintiff that on November 23, 1903 Frederick ZINCK took out a policy in the Atlas company and made monthly payments up to the time of his death. On May 27, 1905 he fell down a stairway and fractured his skull, dying three days later.

According to his policy his estate was to receive $200 within ninety days after accidental death. The company sent a conditional check for ten dollars with a voucher attached which stated by accepting the check the company was released from all further liabilities. The check was refused and suit was brought to recover the face of the policy. The jury awarded the plaintiff judgement for $200 with interest.

R. M. BUSSARD writes The Times as follows: "You are misinformed in regard to my candidacy for alderman in the first Ward. I have not withdrawn. Please correct in the next issue of The Times.

The Times makes the correction just as suggested by Mr. BUSSARD. We take it that he never intended to become a candidate and hence did not have to withdraw.

Kaukauna Times, Kaukauna, WI, March 30, 1906

J. G. FETCHER, who has kept several hives of bees on the bak of the river for several seasons, has decided to dispose of most of them on account of losing so many each summer by drowning. The bees gather most of their honey in the fields on the opposite side of the river and many become exhausted while on their way home and drop into the water and are drowned. Mr. FECHTER noticed that the number of his bees were diminishing rapidly and upon making an investigation one day last summer discovered the cause. He found them floating down stream by the score. Very few of those that came in contact with the river escaped alive.
