Death Came Suddenly.
Monday afternoon, at about six o’clock; Edward Beauregard, a resident of Howard Center township, was found dead by his little daughter who was sent to call him from his work to supper. He had been plowing corn and evidently, being subject to epileptic fits, had been seized by one and fallen forward in such a manner that his neck was broken. When found the team was down and badly tangled up in a fence and their harness. The deceased was about 33 years of age and leaves a wife and three children. They have been residents of this county for about two years, moving from Cedar county, Iowa. The remains were taken yesterday to Topeka. Kansas, where the family have relatives, for interment.
