A man named Olson died near North English Tuesday evening of last week. He was an employee of the gumbo works at Cuba, in Keokuk county, and having saved his earnings until they amounted to about $90, he went to North Egnlish for a "toot." He got dead drunk, and with some companions hired the liveryman to take them back to the gumbo works. Olson died during the trip, or very soon after their arrival. His home is unknown.
