On Friday afternoon, Mr. August Krostag, a longtime and well known and respected resident of Kiel had a sudden and unexpected death. Mr. Krostag, who was in good health, returned home from a walk in the village, had reached his yard when he had a heart attack and collapsed to the ground dead.

The deceased was born on May 24, 1841 in New-Zuerichen, Schlesien, Germany and married Miss Louise Schulz in 1862, and came to America with his family in 1867 and settled in Town Schleswig, where he worked as a mason. Later he purchased a farm four miles north of Kiel which he managed for many years. Twenty-one years ago he moved to Kiel. His wife died in August of 1911.
