The funeral arrangements were in charge of Herman Bartell camp, No. 39, Spanish-American War veterans and Mueller Hintz post of the Veterans of Foreign wars both of Marshfield, to which Mr. Andraska belonged.

Mr. Andraska was defeated for sheriff last fall by a margin of 448 votes by Herman Olson, Republican.
