Farmer John Euken, of LeMars, Meets
With Serious Accident
LeMars, March 30- John Euken, a well-known old time resident residing in Washington Township, is lying at the point of death at his farm house the result of a terrible accident, which befell him just before dusk. While unhitching his horses to put them in the stable for the night he failed to drop all the tugs. He unhooked three of them but overlooked the fourth trace. He started to lead the horses to the barn thinking they were all clear. The rattling of the vehicle scared them and they started plunging in an effort to run away. Euken was thrown to the ground, the horses knocking them down and trampling on his prostate form and kicking him.
The horses shod with cork shoes, had mashed in the frontal bone squarely above the nose displacing a large piece of bone, exposing the brain, and nearly gouging out the left eye. His body was cut and bruised in a number of places. His condition is serious and doubts are entertained as to whether he will recover.
