Hotelling one of the loading business men of Whittemore, was fatally hurt Saturday afternoon by being knocked down and run over by his team and wagon, and died as tho result of his injuries Sunday morning shortly after 4 o'clock. Tho accident occurred between 12 and 1 o'clock, Saturday, near Mr. Ilotelling's hay barn. The driver of the team, an employe of Mr. Hotelling, was unable to manage them, one lino having been pulled so far through the ferret that tho buckle caught on it, so that only one lino could be used, and tho horses began running in a circle. Mr. Hotelling ran to their heads, and as he did so the horses veered a little from their course and came right upon him. The end of tho polo struck him in the breast and knocked him down, and then tho horses tramped over him, and then the wagon ran over him. Tho injured man rose to his foot and started for the house. Ho was met by his daughter, who asked him if he was hurt. Ho spoke as though he was not much injured, but said his back hurt him. Ho sat down to rest a moment and then walked on to the house. The terrible nature of his injuries was not at first apparent, but no medical skill could have availed to save his life. The bones of his breast were completely crushed in, though tho skin was not broken, and no external bleeding on- sued. Mr. Hotelling did not begin to realize his condition until ho tried to lie down. He could not remain a moment in that position, so he was i-aisod up and propped in a chair, where he remained until death came. His chest was completely crushed and no surgery could avail further than to postpone the moment when tho spirit should take its flight. Tho only members of the family who were at home at the time of the accident were tho two daughters, Miss Bird Hotelling, teacher in the Algona schools, and her younger sister Vera, Mrs. Hotelling being at Clear Lake visiting at the homo of her parents. As soon as ho realized his condition Mr. Hotelling asked to have his wife telegraphed for. When sho received tho telegram the afternoon passenger had been gone twenty minutes, and she cook the first freight. The telegraph operator kept track of the train and the dying man was informed from time to time whore it was. Ho retained his consciousness to the last, and when at one o.clock Sunday morning the train whistled he noted it and know that his wife had come. When sho came in he said that life for. him was short. It was getting dark. Ho asked her to pray with him and to road the 14th chapter of John and the 23d Psalm and ho repeated after her the words of assurance. Ho was not a member of any church, though ho was a believer iu Christianity and iu Christ as his Savior,.and his dying regret was that ho had not so identified himself. Miss May Hotelling, the oldest daughter, who is a teacher at Mason City, received the news of her father's death while at church Sunday. She at oncoj so- cured a team and was driven through, a distance of 04 miles, with several changes of horses. Clair Hotelling and wife came down from theirlhome at Fulda,Minn,,and was present at his father's funeral, which was held yesterday afternoon. The services were conducted jointly by the G. A. R. andK. of P. lodges, all tho neighboring towns being represented. Algonaseut over about 30 old veterans, and the Knights of Pythias an equal number. The funeral was one of tho largest ever hold in the county. The procession reached from the residence to the cemetery, half >a; mile distant. The pastor of the Baptist church, of which Mrs. Hotelling is a member, preached tho sermon, and tho exercises at the grave wore under tho conduct of the veterans and Knights. A noteworthy thing was the deep feeling shown by the neighbors. Mr. Hotelling was a man of blameless character, and everyone who knew him was his friend. Mr. Hotelling was born in Now York, near Albany, in 1843. He enlisted in the Union army from his native state, and being discharged after a few years for disability ho re-enlisted from Ohio. He was married 29 years ago to tho daughter of A. B. Tuttle, of Mason City, and now of Clear Lake. Lucius Tuttle, formerly of this place, but now of Chicago, a brother of the widow, was present, and two sisters of the deceased, from Rockford, Illinois were present with their husbands.
