DEATH of LITTLE PAUL HARTMAN

Paul Hartman gravestone.jpg Little Paul HARTMAN, eight years old, whose sad death occured (sic) at this place Saturday about noon, as he was going home past the J. M. TREICHLER house. No one saw the lad but those inside the house heard a scream and something fell outside. Mrs. BARNES and Father J. M. TREICHLER exclaimed, "That sounded like the window box." Mrs. TREICHLER was sitting near the window and on looking out saw the window box on the ground and the boy under it with his head and shoulders past the box, which was lying across his chest. They ran to try to save him, the box being full of earth it was hard lifting, and Ralph REED going by carred the boy in the house and called Dr. DeWITT, who came at once, but to no avail as life was extinct and the little form was moved by the undertakers to the home of his parents in the east part of town. Just why little Paul was climbing upon the box no one can tell, unless it was to get the house-cat, which often lay in the box sunning itself and he was very fond of cats. He was an unusually bright boy, the youngest in a family, and will be greatly missed by all. The funeral was held at the Methodist church Monday afternoon at two o'clock, with Rev. K. E. NESBIT officiating and interment made in the Ellston cemetery.

Paul Nathaniel HARTMAN, son of George and Emma HARTMAN, was born October 25, 1918, near Creston Iowa, and met death accidently at Ellston, Iowa, on January 29, 1927. He leaves to mourn his death three sisters and three brothers, Ernest, Richard, Russell, Eva, Grace, all of Ellston and Mrs. Laura PORTER, of Newton, Iowa. One infant brother preceded him in death. He was a member of the third grade of the Ellston public school, and a regular attendant at Junior League and Sunday school.

He will be sadly missed by the relatives and many schoolmates and friends.

The relatives who attended the funeral of Paul HARTMAN here Monday were, Mr. and Mrs. Walter GRAY, son, James and Raymond of Patterson, Iowa; Mr. John HARTMAN family of Macksburg; Mr. and Mrs. John SMITH and Mr. and Mrs. James SMITH, of Hopeville; Mr. Wm. HARTMAN; Mr. and Mrs. Frank I. HARTMAN and son; Mr. and Mrs. Ross PETERSON; Mr. and Mrs. James HARTMAN, son George and daughter Rita; Mr. and Mrs. Clyde HARTMAN; Mr. and Mrs. Frank R.
