A Sudden Death
Benjamin C. Hankla Dies of Hemorrhage of the Brain.
The people of Basin were shocked last Tuesday morning to hear of the death of Benjamin C. Hankla, who had died at 7:30 o'clock that morning of a hemorrhage of the brain. He had been sick but a short time, but still complained of a severe pain in the head. Every effort was made to relieve this, but the attending physician held out no hope to the family of the deceased.
Benjamin C. Hankla was born in Denver, Colo., Sept., 1893. He has lived in this country for over ten years and was well known all over this county. For a number of years he lived at Burlington with his parents and later came to Basin where he has been for some time. He was one of the most prominent young men in the country and will be sadly missed by his friends and associates.
To his sorrowing mother and his brothers and sisters the deepest sympathy goes out in this hour of trial.
The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon from the undertaking rooms of Wm. Gibson, and the remains were followed to the cemetery by a large number of friends. The casket was covered with beautiful flowers, as a token of the esteem and sympathy of the people.
The services were conducted by Rev. Creath of the Methodist church. The pall bearers were R.A. Gould, S.F. Fleddersen, A.B. Martin, F.I. Rue, L.O. Gray and O.T. Gebhart.
