David Haas, one of Fountain County' pioneers, died at his home in Newtown last Sunday at the advanced age of 83 years. He settled in Fountain County in 1852. The verdict of death from natural causes was rendered by the coroner at the investigation caused by the death of Miss Gertrude Trimmel, the stenographer, who died at Danville last week. Thus Attorney Hill is exonerated. A fatal runaway occurred last Monday near Waveland, Fountain County, in which Cal Garland lost his life. His team ran away and threw him out on his head, instatly killing him. Mr. Garland was one of the wealthiest and most infuential men of the Waveland nieghborhood and his death is a severe loss to the community. James Albert, son of James and Ella Brown, was born in Iroquois County, Ill., Oct. 28th, 1889, and died at his father's residence near Winthrop, Warren County, Indiana, Aug. 14th, 1897, aged seven years, nine months and seventeen days. About one o'clock on the 14th of August, while going behind a horse, which was tied in the barn, he was accidentally kicked in the abdomen. His screams were quickly heard by all members of the family, who went to his assistance as soon as possible. The little fellow became unconscious and was carried into the house, when two doctors, Case and DeHart were summoned. After three o'clock his sufferings ceased, and he was conscious until the last, but gradually sank until seven o'clock, when he lifted his eyes toward heaven and gave up his innocent soul. He leaves to mourn his loss a father, mother, one sister, two brothers and many friends and relatives. Albert was a sweet child and will be missed by his many friends and schoolmates-most of all by his parents, who were most considerate to his training for future usefulness. We can but offer them our sincere sympathy in their great sorrow. Though he lived but seven short years, his influence for good and his manly resignation to the will of the most high, will have a tendency to prepare many lives, and we can but say as we look upon him for the last time- "Thy will, not ours, be done." The funeral services were conducted at the Catholic Church in Attica, the following Monday under the direction of Father Lemper. Interment was in teh Cathoilic Cemetery. Died at the family home just south of Williamsport Fridy afternoon at about 4 o'clock, Mrs. J. M. Hunter. People were startled Friday evening, when the announcement came of Mrs. hunter's death. She was sitting in a rocking chair when suddenly she asked for the camphor bottle. The person waiting upon her found her unconscious on reaching the chair and used every effort to resuscitate the patient, supposing she had fainted, but with no avail. She then telephoned to Mrs. Messner, who soon came and Dr. Swank was summoned as soon as possible. He used restoratives, but without avail. Mrs. Hunter was beyond the reach of human aid. She had been sick some weeks ago, but was recovering and was making preparations for a trip; had visited Attica but two days prior to her death, on a shopping tour, preparatory to make her contemplated trip to her old home in Kansas. Manda E. Hunter was the daughter of Levi Bonebrake. She was born in Washington Township, this county, Jan. 13, 1849. She was married to Mr. Hunter in Louisburg, Kansas, Nov. 23, 1887.
