A terrible accident occurred Friday, February 23, 1906, at the home of I. E. Schweikhardt, 10 miles west of Bolckow. Mrs. S. had just finished washing and taken a boiler of hot suds from the stove to scrub with when their little girl, Myrtle, in stepping back to get out of her mother's way, fell over backwards into the scalding hot suds. When her mother pulled the hot clothing off the child, skin and flesh came with them, and althought [sic] everything possible was done to save her, she died at 9 a.m. Saturday, aged 5 years, 6 months and 1 day-- Bolckow Enterprise.
