BODY FOUND IN CISTERN
Woman Is Believed Accidentally to Have Fallen Into Well.
The body of Mrs. Wallin, who disappeared last November and efforts to locate whom have proven unavailing, has been found in a cistern in the rear of the Merchants hotel at Lidgerwood.
Mrs. Wallin was the wife of a farmer living ten miles south of there and had been in Minneapolis for medical treatment. She suddenly developed mental trouble and was placed on a train and sent home. Just as the train reached Lidgerwood the woman sprang from it and ran. There was a blizzard raging at the time, and it was supposed that the unfortunate woman had wandered out on the prairie and had perished. Search for her body has continued, but without result, until a hired girl at the hotel found the body in an open cistern. It is believed that the woman was going to the hotel to seek shelter from the storm and in the darkness fell into the cistern and was drowned.
