Picthtoe, Obituary/Death NoticePorter County obituaries and death notices . . . .


Two years ago next fall a man named Picthtoe while at a dance at the house of Mr. Kaiser received injuries which shortly caused his death. For time talk was that he was kicked to death by 2 men named John Wisnock and Joe Campbell, and finally they were arrested on complaint of the deceased's administrator, Mr. Lovendoski. The case was brought before Esq. Dunning and dismissed for want of evidence. The administrator then brought suit for damages from the accused men for the benefit of the heirs of the deceased. The case was set for trial on the 7th instant, but was postponed from day to day, but it is expected to be tried to-day. Witnesses to the number of about 40, of both sexes, are in attendance waiting to be heard. All parties concerned are Polanders, and live near Otis. N. J. Bozarth is attorney for the plaintiff and Wm. Johnston for the defendants.
