Correspondence: Dear Mr. Gonner. On November 5th a terrible prairie fire raged south of White Lake, SD, and where Luxembourg families came to harm. Even two married men lost their lives. One of them named Anton Arens is leaving a mourning widow with two small children, the other one, Nik Wolff, leaves a mourning widow and three underage children. Both victims originate from either Dubuque or Jackson Co., Iowa, and were buried on November 7th amid a large attendance of the community.
