TRAMPLED TO DEATH BY COW

Prominent Swedesburg Woman

Succumbs to Terrible Injuries

~

Mt. Pleasant, Jan. 16, - Mrs. N. M. Johnson, well known woman living near Swedesburg, died Saturday afternoon as result of injuries received from a cow Friday afternoon. She had gone into the barn to take the calf away from the mother when the latter became infuriated and turned upon her and trampled her underfoot so that her shoulders and several ribs were broken and she was otherwise bruised and injured. Two parties passing at the time, helped to extricate her and she did not lose consciousness, but the shock was too great for her and she passed away Saturday afternoon.
