"ecooaes our painfill duty this
to chronicle the death of a
bung man who was born and raised
in New Uim and who had before him
a most successful business career
when he was stricken in the prime of
life. News of the death of Hugo
Boock at Orosby, N. D. where he died
Saturday evening at 7 o'clock reached
New Ulm Sunday morning. Death
was due to pulmonary tuberculosis
with which he had been afflicted "for
over four years.
The deceased was born in New Ulm
on the 30ob day of September 1876 and
was therefore only 36 years old when
he answered Death's summons. He
grew to manhood here, and learned
the druggist's profession at the
Pioneer Drug Store. In the year 1897
he was married at St. Paul to Miss
Mary Kopetzki, his surviving widow,
and shortly thereafter left for Great
Palls, Montana where he had secured
employment at a drug store. After
leaving Great Falls he was located at
different places in Minnesota, owning
and operating at one time a drug store
at Buffalo Lake which afterwards
About seven years ago he removed
to Crosby, N. D. and since then
Fortune has smiled on him in a
financial way. He had a substantial
store building erected the past summer
for a second drug store. Last winter
on account of its severity was a bad
one for Mr. Boock who was in poor
health. During February he was
tasen ill and bis life was despaired of
for a time, but ha rallied sufficiently
to be able to make a trip east during
the summer and he visited with the
home-folks a few days on his return
trip during the month of August. His
father, Christ Boock, went to Crosby
about four weeks ago and stayed with
bis son till he died and accompanied
the remains to New Ulm, arriving
Tuesday afternoon. The widow, three
children and a brother, Alfred of
Spokane, Wash., who erected the
building for him at Crosby, were the
other members of the funeral party.
The deceased had a happy, sunny
disposition and was well-liked by all
who knew him and his demise means
to them a personal loss. He had a
host of close and warm friends in
Crosby whojsent many beautiful floral
tributes. He is survived by his widow,
three daughters, his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Christ Boock, his brothers Fred
and Otto, all residing in New Ulm and
his brother Alfred located at Spokane,
Wash. The funeral will be held to
morrow morning (Thursday) at 9
o'clock from the Catholic Church,
Rev. Schlinkert officiating.
Word reached New Ulm Tuesday
morning of the sudden death Mon
day morning of Oliver Green, who was
well known here. It has been im
possible for us to get any uefimte in
formation except that Mr. Green died
following an operation for some
throat trouble and it was thought that
interment would be made at St. Peter.
We regret exceedingly our inability to
furnish definite information' to those
of his friends and acquaintances who
would wish to [know4.but it was only
after much effort that we succeeded in
learning the above meagre details.
The sympathy of the old neighbors of
the Green families is extended to them
in this sorrow.

this city Wednesday morning Nov.
