M.A. KRINKE DEAD: One of Bear Valley’s Prominent Citizens Passes Away.
One of the saddest events which it has been the lot of THE TRIBUNE to chronicle of recent date is the sudden death of Michael A. Krinke of Bear Valley, which occurred last evening about 7 o’clock. Mr. Krinke had been ill for several years and was constantly under medical treatment, everything possible having been done to effect a recovery, though without avail. On Monday Dr. Witherstine of Rochester, was called in consultation with Dr. Cremer and an effort made to turn the downward tendency of the diseases which were effecting him, but the patient was apparently liable to go at any moment and their worst fears were realized when Dr. Cremer called last evening only to find everything in confusion and to learn that Mr. Krinke had expired a few minutes before his arrival.
April 4, 1894: Mr. Krinke was buried last Saturday. Over forty teams were in procession which followed the remains to their last resting place.

The village of Mazeppa has been sued for $5,000. Damages for injury to the leg of John Ferber of Pine Island, who stumble and fell because of a defective sidewalk about eighteen months ago. He had recovered from breaking the leg when he came over to Mazeppa on livery duty. While walking down the sidewalk near Z.B. Page & Co.’s a misplaced or poorly fastened plank tripped him. He arouses and walked to the livery barn and stood around for some time without showing signs of serious injury. Papers were served on Pres. Engelhart and Recorder Munger.
