--Arthur Leppert, the young man mentioned in our last as having been taken to LaCrosse for surgical treatment, was operated on Wednesday morning at 11 o'clock, and died early next morning. His case was hopeless and Dr. Evans, who performed the operation, reports it the worst he ever saw. The appendix was rotted off and the bowels perforated in two or three places. The remains were brought to the home of the grief stricken parents in French Creek township Thursday evening and buried from the church on May's prairie Saturday morning, a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends following the casket to Oak Hill cemetery, where interment took place in the family lot. Deceased was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. P. Leppert and aged about nineteen years. It is the second time withn a a few years that they have been called upon to lay away a loved one grown almost to man's estate, and they have the heartfelt condolence of many friends in their great bereavement.
