Dec. 28 - Nelson Hooper, who resided with his son about seven miles northeast of this village, died suddenly about 1 o’clock this morning.

Mr. Hooper, who was about 63 years old, started for the house, became dizzy just as he reached the door, and was unable to get in. His son went in the door and upon finding his father there assisted him into the house and gave him some remedy at hand which seemed to temporarily relive him, but he soon grew worse and was assisted to his bed, where he remained in a sub conscious condition. About midnight the son went to him and attempted to rouse him, but was unable to do so, the old gentleman having sunk into a deep stupor. Shortly after the son went to his father and found him breathing heavily, Gasping, he suddenly expired. Coroner Leroy F. Hollis of Lacona was notified and with Dr. Fenton A. MacCallom of this village, who acted as coroner’s physician, visited the Hooper homestead and after making a thorough investigation and ascertaining the facts did not deem an inquest necessary, the coroner declaring apoplexy to be the cause of death.
