Starvation Claims Life of Mother

Children Found Without Food—Mother Died an Hour After Family Found

Cando, N.D., Dec 27—When neighbors visited the family of a man named Weigel, who, with his wife and seven children has been living in a house provided free of charge by George McWilliams, a farmer northeast of the city, they found the mother in a dying condition and the children scantily clothed with no food in the house. It is believed the mother died of starvation as she lived but an hour after she was found. No attempt had been made to place the blame but feeling is running high in that community against the husband.
