Some are very sad stories, such as Mrs. Augustina Scheidel who died October 15, 1926. The report stated she resided at 408 E. Walnut, in Salina.  She was 83 years old and had a bakery shop.  Her husband, Adam, was a carpenter.  Mrs. Scheidel died as a result of being hit over the head four times with a table leg.  Mr. Scheidel was responsible for killing his wife, and he also died October 15th from an infection of the brain.
