An Eldora dispatch says: a brute in human form has been discovered three miles southwest of here. His name is Joe Priske. His wife, a daughter of Mrs. Joseph Fromholtz, of this city, has been dangerously sick for some weeks. The husband has refused to call or permit medical assistance. A sister of Mrs. Priske went out to help take care of her. Priske went into a great rage, marched around the house, fired off his gun, and became so violent that the young woman had to leave. Later Mrs. Fromholtz took a carriage, and, accompanied by Sherriff Boylan, went to Priske’s, but found that worthy away from home. Mrs. Priske was carefully wrapped up and with her and liitle babe brought home with Mrs. Fromholtz.
