Herman Tebbe, while helping his son, Herbert Tebbe, met with a terrible death Thursday forenoon. The men were going to paint a roof on the son's farm and they put a kettle of roof paint on the stove to heat, when it exploded. The father grabbed the kettle to carry it over to the house when his clothing caught fire and he fell in the room before he could reach the door. The son came in and found his father lying on the floor with the fire burning his clothes. He carried him out and put out the fire. Four doctors and a nurse were on hand quickly, who did all they could for the unfortunate man but he passed away yesterday morning at one o'clock. Herman Tebbe was born near Dixon, Scott county, Iowa, May 10th, 1870, and died Aug. 24th, 1917, at one o'clock a.m. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife and two sons, Herbert and Alois Tebbe at home, and four sisters, Mrs. Wm. Kuehl, Dow City, Iowa; Mrs. John Tebbe, Dow City, Iowa; Mrs. J. N. Vollersen, Schleswig, Iowa, and Mrs. Herman Kramer, Emporia, Kansas.

The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, with burial in the Big Rock cemetery.
