Chas Hansen
Dies in California-Was Son of Mr and Mrs John Hansen of This City.
[Vinton, Iowa, Eagle.]
Charles M Hansen, son of John and Mary M Hansen of Vinton, Iowa, was born in Hocking county, Ohio, September 29, 1867, and died at Los Angeles, California, March 17, 1904. His boyhood was spent in Logan, Ohio. He graduated from the Logan high school in 1885 after which he began his preparation for the profession of law. Five years were spent in study and one in travel and then in the winter of 1891 he began his business career as conveyancer and legal advisor for B. F. Jacobs of Chicago. In the autumn of that year he was married to Lou J Miller, of Logan, Ohio. They lived in Chicago four years. Then came a severe attack of inflamatory rheumatism, which left a weakened heart condition that made active business life impossible. Mr Hansen closed up his affairs in Chicago, exchanged his Irving Park residence for a similar one on Coronado Beach, San Diego, California and went there to live with the hope of regaining his health. Finally with health apparently restored he began the practice of law in Los Angeles. Success crowned his efforts. Prosperity and happiness were his again in large measure. Six weeks ago his old trouble returned. Four weeks ago he was taken to the hospital. His brother, Dr Homer A Hansen, of Columbus, Nebraska, and his sister, Mrs Roy F Harsh, lately of this city, were with him during his entire illness. Charles Hansen has departed. Thank God, he lived. His life brought joy to all who knew him. He was the best of sons, the best of brothers, the best of men.

Funeral services for Lewis Hartman 15, of Junction City, Ohio were conducted at St John's Catholic church this city at 9:30 Friday morning. Rev Fr. Dunn of Junction City officiated. Interment was made in Oak Grove cemetery. Lewis Hartman was the son of Mr and Mrs Will Hartman former Logan residents. His death occurred Tuesday when the dairy truck which he was driving was struck by a fast passenger train at a road grade crossing. It is said that there was a freight on the siding at the time of the accident and young Hartman stopped in an effort to locate any coming trains. It is thought the smoke from the freight partly obscured his view and as he drove on the tracks the train bore down on him. The body was horribly mangled. He was one of the most valued employees of the Clouse-Snyder Dairy Co. The business houses of Junction City closed Friday for the funeral. The deceased was a nephew of Martin Hartman, this city and John Hartman of Marion township.
