But Probably Only Temporarily as She Was Herself Yesterday -- Why she left Home In the Night Not Known --«/b»

Mrs. Henry Yackel, a resident of Winona during the past twenty-six years was found dead last evening near the corner of East Second and Hamilton streets at about 11 o'clock, having been run over by the Burlington train which left last evening at 10:40 The identity of the woman was unknown until this morning at about 6:20 o'clock, when it was learned by members fo the family that Mrs Yackel had mysteriously disappeared during the night, and a search revealed the fact that she had been killed by the train during the night.
According to Henry Yackel, surviving husband he arrived at his home last evening at about 9 30 o'clock, and at the time had some conversation with his wife before retiring to his his room, she as usual sleeping with her small son. Since that time nothing was heard nor seen of the woman until it was discovered this morning that she had left the house during the night. The members of the family are unable to account in any way for the peculiar actions of the deceased. Yesterday she was about the house as usual and nothing in any way indicated any mental debility. What caused her to leave will doubtless never be learned, but her actions of last evening seem to indicate an unbalanced state of her mind. What caused her to go to the spot where the body was found cannot be understood. No inquest was held the cause of her death being accidental.

Ten weeks ago she was taken ill, and all that medical aid, and loving hands could do was done but to no avail. None but the duaghter, can justly weigh such sorrow as this.
