New Leipzig, N.D., Feb 16.—John Kuck, a farmer near here, is a sleep walker. Recently he jumped through the second story window of his farm home and walked a mile to the Reinhold Werre home, barefooted and clad only in a night shirt, and during 20 degrees below zero weather. He was awakened by the time he reached the place where he was taken in. A physician summoned found Kuck had badly frozen his feet and legs and had sustained a deep gash in his abdomen requiring many stitches when he jumped from the window. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.
