Choked to Death.
Sumner, Dec. 4 —Louis Guhr, one of the wealthiest farmers of Bremer county, living near Buck Creek, was choked to death, this morning, in an unusually peculiar manner. He was ascending an enclosed wind mill tower when a set screw on a revolving shaft caught in his clothing and twisted so tightly about him that he was choked to death before help could reach him.
