Hansel J. Green, one of the oldest and most influential citizens of Attica, died at his home in that place last Sunday morning from Bright's Disease after being afflicted for several years. Formerly Mr. Green was engaged in the hardware business, his partner being the late F. P. Longley of this place. Mr. Green for many years has held the responsible position of cashier of the Farmers' and Merchants' Bank. He was well and favorably known throughout this county. He was a prominent member of the Presbyterian Church. He was a successful man of business and of excellent social qualities. No man will be missed more in Attica than Mr. Green. Elsie Edward, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Amos Hall, died at their home south of Johnsonville on the 7th inst. in the morning. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. McKinnel of Marshfield. The remains were laid to rest in Gopher Hill Cemetery. Little Elsie was born December 23, 1899, died March 7, 1900, aged 2 months and 14 days. For sometime the death angel had been hovering near and at last God called away the little one who had brightened our home for such a short time. The little cradle is now empty; the little cry is now still, for God hath plucked the choicest blossom. Mrs. Hattie Merricks, formerly Mrs. Hattie McMullen nee Atkinson, died at Cleveland, O., last Friday evening and the remains were brought to this county for interment in the Martindale Cemetery, which occurred last Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Mary, the youngest child and only daughter of LaMonte M. Green of Attica, died last week on Wednesday and the funeral occurred last Friday. The mother of the child at the time was in Ashville, N. C., where she had gone for her health.
