Last week while umpiring a game of ball near Windom, Michael Pirmantgen, a farmer of Heart township, dropped dead. An inning of the game had just finished and Mr. Pirmantgen was standing near the pitcher's box, when he staggered backward to the ground. Those standing near went to him and to their surprise discovered that life had left the body.
A wife and two small children are left to mourn his sudden and untimely death, who had the sincere sympathy of their neighbors and friends in this their darkest hour.
The remains were taken to the old home at Clasner Minn for burial, accompanied by a brother, Mrs. Pirmantgen going the day previous.
