It seems that Ed. Wilcox, who we reported as having died at the county farm, was drowned in Lake Winnebago, whether by accident or otherwise will probably never be known. He left the county house in the afternoon, and the next morning his body was found in the lake, a mile or two from where he was last seen. He was subject to fits and it is probable that he fell into the lake in one of these spells. He was about 23 years of age.
