E. A. KING DIED OF PNEUMONIA
E. A. King, one of the earliest settlers of the city of Hankinson, passed away at his home in this city on Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, a victim of plural pneumonia. Mr. King was taken ill last Tuesday and on Thursday became critically ill with pneumonia, and although relatives and friends hoped he would be able to svirvive the ravages of the malady, his age of nearly four score years proved too great a handicap, and he passed away after eight days' illness.

Funeral services will be held at the Congregational Church Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. Smith conducting the ritual, and business in the home city will cease during the services.

Emmet A. King was born May 26th, 1854, in Onandago County, NY., living there until 1882, then moved to Reeds Corners, WI., where he married Nellie Valentine in 1881, who died ten years later. He then moved to Breckenridge in 1894, where he worked for the Great Northem Railway as a trainman. He married Hilda Schroeder of Hankinson in 1895 and then moved to Aberdeen, SD. He came to Hankinson in 1897, and engaged in railroading, and also in the restaurant business. Thirty years ago an accident happened which prevented his following railroad work and he engaged in other endeavors in this city. For several years he had been police magistrate for Hankinson and manager of the city weigh department, duties which he fulfilled ably and conscientiously. Throughout his many years residence in Hankinson he has made friends by the hundreds with his pleasing personality and general humorous disposition, to all his untimely death is a severe shock. Although almost 80 years old, Mr. King enjoyed exceptionally good health until stricken last week.

In 1895, July 5th, Mr. King was united in marriage to Miss Hilda Schroeder, and to this union two children were born, Charles and Harry, both residents of this city, who with many near relatives and friends, survive to mourn their loss.
