SUICIDE OF H. A. MEYER.---Cashier of the First National Bank, Boscobel.---The City Thrown into a State of Excitement by the Act.---One More Valued Citizen Gone to that Bourne from Whence no Traveler Returns.---A Day of Gloom for Boscobel.---Solomn and Impressive Ceremonies at the Funeral.--Our city was thrown into an unusual state of excitement early Monday morning last (4/24), by the report on the street that H. A. Meyer, one of our most respected citizens and cashier of the First National Bank of Boscobel, had committed suicide at his rooms at the Central House, by shooting himself through the head.  On repairing to the hotel the sad report was found to be too true.  Throught the courtsey of Mr. Barnett, the prooprietor of the Central, we were at once shown into the ill-fated room where the tragedy, which has deprived the city of one of its ablest business men, was enacted.  The unfortunate man lay upon the bed, his head fallen back upon the pillow, his hand clasping a Smith & Weston six-inch barrel revolv Boscobel Dial  4/28 1876 3  
SUICIDE OF H. A. MEYER, con't...It is supposed that he was sitting up or resting on his elbow when he discharged the revolver.  The weapon employed was almost equivalent to a rifle, and its effect, from the position of the wound, almost instantaneous death.  On a table near the bed, lay two letters, one in German and the other in English, addressed to his friends, explaining the motives which led the nfortunate man to the perpetration of the act.  The first letter seemed to have been written early on Saturday morning last, after the deceased, in contemplation of and with the purpose of suicide, had taken about 3 1/2 grains of morphine.  But finding that the morphine did not produce the desired effect, he, later in the day, sent for his physician, Dr. Carley and acquainted hin of the fact and of his intent in taking the morphine, but under the promise of secrecy from his physician.  The Doctor, however, in defiance of his promise of secrecy, did acquaint the friends of the deceased with the fact of his having Boscobel Dial  4/28 1876 3  
SUICIDE OF H. A. MEYER, con't...All acquainted with the life of Mr. Meyer, know full well to what these "troubles" refer; that they did not affect his public character or reputation, but were of that domestic nature over which Charity spreads the veil and the Recording Angel drops the tear that obliterated the record forever.  In private life Mr. Meyer was highly esteemed by all who were acquainted with him, while in business transactions, especially in connection with the first National Bank of this place, he leaves a name and record, untarnished even by suspicion, as an honest and faithful officer, which in these days of offical misconduct, is a legacy rarely bequeathed.  Deceased was forty years of age in March last, and was born at Ubbedissen, near Bielefeldt, Wesphalia, Germany, and came to the United States in the fall of 1848; was forf some time teller in the People's Bank of Milwaukee, and afterwards in the War of the Rebellion joined the army from this State as Captain in the 28th Regiment Wisconsin Boscobel Dial  4/28 1876 3

OBITUARY---LOU. P. LESLER.---It is with deep sorrow that The Dial is called upon to announce the death of its chief---Lou. P.

Lesler was born November 8, 1844; died May 27, 1883, consequently was aged 38 years, 6 months and 20 days.  Raised in Grant county, he was known in his youth by all of the older settlers who speak of him as an honorable, fai.....inded and conscientious boy; and his maturer years added to his splendid reputation, so that his talents had been sought for by the business men as well as the public generally of the county.  At the age of 17, he entered the  Boscobel Dial  6/1 1883 3  
OBITUARY---LOU. P. LESLER., con't...In December, 1871, Mr. Lesler took the position of book-keeper with the Messrs. Meyer Bros., which place he filed with perfect satisfaction to his employers; and by his straight forward, prompt and reliable business habits added to his already large number of warm, personal friends.  On August 17, 1875, he was married to Miss Eda A. Meyer, with whom he lived a happy married life up to the time of his demise.  The result of the union was two children, a son and a daughter, who were the pride and joy of the father.  No family in the city lived more happily and enjoyed the society of each other better than did his.  The last final blow, although looked for, came with terrible effect upon the family, and they mourn the absence of the kind and loving husband and father bitterly.  Their sorrow, however, is in a manner assauged by the knowledge that his sickness was made more easy to bear by the tender care and constant watching they bestowed.  During the time he was with the Mey Boscobel Dial  6/1 1883 3

CIRCUIT COURT---Mrs. Eda DeWitt Finally Wins Her Suit---....The most important case on the docket, and which attracted the greatest interest, was that of Mrs. Eda DeWitt against the Home Forum Benefit order, of New York.  Our readers doubtless are familiar with the circumstances surrounding the suit.  Her husband, Chas. A. DeWitt died suddenly in the winter of 1894 at McLanesboro, Ill.  At the time of his demise he left a life insurance policy of $3,000 in the above named order and shortly after, his widow presented her claim for payment of same.  This, the company refused to allow on the grounds that he died from his own hand, and further that the certificate of insurance was obtained by irregular means.  Mrs. DeWitt engaged Attorneys W. E. Howe and Paul Meyer, of this city, as council and brought action against the company in the Circuit Court at Lancaster the following term in February, a year ago.  Bushnell, Watkins & Moses, of Lancaster, appeared for the defense, and argued for a continuance.  It was gr Boscobel Dial-Enterprise 2/26 1896 4

M.  Boscobel Loses An Honored Citizen And The Bar A Leading Member.      For weeks, yes months, his family and near friends have known that Mr. Wilson's death was imminent.  The singular fortitude and uncomplaining patience and cheerfulness with which he awaited the final summons, without a word of dread or any expression of the anguish he must have felt at leaving family and friends--keeping up his daily work and giving counsel long after he was confined to his home, affords a striking example of the remarkable characteristics of Mr. Wilson's temperament and mind.  Stricken down while his great abilities were at their full, taken from the world while he was still active in most useful work for which he was admirably and peculiarly fitted as well by natural talent as by acquired practice and ability, his death is a heavy loss to our city and county and will be felt far beyond their limits.  On Sabbath evening, March  Boscobel Dial-Enterprise 3/24 1897 5  
John D. Wilson dead, con't:    The deceased owed much to his Scottish ancestry.  The charateristics of that noble race he possessed in a very large measure.  He spent his boyhood amid the granite hills of his native New Hampshire, and coming west he brought with him that best possible combination for an aggressive life--Scotch sturdiness and firmness and New England enterprise and thrift.  From Fisherville and Concord he came in 1866 to Darlington, Wis., entering at once the public schools of that city and planning for a professional life.  Many were the obstacles and difficulties he manfully overcame in acquiring his education, but his was not the nature to give in to trifles.  He, at length, entered the law office of H. S. Magoon, at Darlington, completing his studies with Judge M. M. Cothren, of Mineral Point, where two days after reaching his majority, June 22, 1873, he was admitted to the bar.  Two years later he opened a law office in Boscobel in partnership with Mr. Cothren, and when, a year later, th Boscobel Dial-Enterprise 3/24 1897 5

Fred A. Meyer.   At Denison, Texas, Friday morning, March 6, died Fred A. Meyer at the age of 36.  At this time details are not complete, but there is no doubt but heart failure was the cause of his early demise.    On July 1, 1903, Mr. Meyer sold the Dial Enterprise to the present owner and soon after went to Marshall, Texas, intending to become a farmer.  He bought a tract of land and started in the business, devoting much attention to poultry, so it is said.  But he was a printer, not a farmer, and soon tired of the new life.  Being an expert printer, he had no trouble in getting into one of the best shops in the Lone Star state.  That took him to Fort Worth, where he was foreman in one of the largest shops in that section.  Only a little time ago he bought a job shop in Denison, and intended to move his famiy there, in the meantime living in a boarding house.  He had often complained of heart trouble, so it now develops, and but recently wrote to his sister, Mrs. C. F. Rudolf of Muscoda, saying that he w Boscobel Dial-Enterprise 3/11 1908 1  
Fred A. Meyer, con't:  In both the news and mechanical ends of the profession he was one of infinite care, always painstaking and throughly professional.  He was postmaster of Boscobel a term and got his second appointment, resigning to go to Texas.   In the fall of 1898 Mr. Meyer was married to Miss Nellie E. Pengilly, a daughter of the late Rev. R. Pengilly, M. E., then located in Bloomington.  She survives with three small children, besides the father, mother, a brother, Bruce, and a sister, Mrs. C. F. Rodolf.  Three years ago deceased joined the Methodist church and is said to have since lived a very devote life.  Mr. Meyer had many friends in Boscobel, and as a newspaperman he had a large circle of admirers.  The news of his death came as a decided shock, although it was known here that he was suffering from heart disease.  At this time it is not known where burial was had. Boscobel Dial-Enterprise 3/11 1908 1  
Fred A. Meyer. (further details from following week's paper)    Fred A. Meyer was a member of the firm of Kirk & Meyer of Fort Worth, and a prominent member of the Fort Worth Typographical Union up until about the first of the year, when he removed to Denison and took up his membership there.  He leaves a wife and three children, in addition to his mother and father, who are still living in Fort Worth.  The funeral will be held from the family residence, 1003 Hemphill St., Fort Worth, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock.  Interment will be held at Oakwood cemetery.

We are in receipt of a copy of the Los Angeles Daily Herald of recent date.  Occupying a conspicuous position on the first page is an illustration of Mrs. Earl Lynn and her little son, DeWitt Paul Lynn.  Local interest is attached to the mother because she was formerly Velma DeWitt of Boscobel.  The youngester is pictured as the pride of the big city of Los Angeles, due to his size and general uniform measurements for a baby only four months of age.  New York papers are making a splurge about a baby there of remarkable size; Chicago also has a marvel, but the California baby, according to the Los Angeles paper, beats 'em all.  His weight is 21 pounds; height 27 3/4 inches; neck 11 1/2; head 19; chest 21.  He is an open-air baby, and has never been sick in his life.

HILDEBRAND, cont'd...This was in 1856, and it was during the following year that George received word from his brother of an opening with Fette, Meyer & Co.  It was therefore in 1857, that Mr. Hildebrand came to Boscobel and entered in his duties as clerk and general helper with the above named firm.  He often related in after years how his very first job was to sort potatoes i the cellar--a novel and trying expericnce for the frail, young student, believed to be threatened with tuberculosis.  But the indomitable spirit and devotion to duty, ever characteristic of the man, did not permit him to shirk even the  most unpleasant task, and his employers soon discovered his true value.  In fact, when Dwight Parker, Sr., who operated a general store in Lancaster, determined to establish a branch in Boscobel a year or so after Mr. Hildebrand's arrival, he recognized in him the ablest young man in town to assist him in his new venture.  This was the so-called Peoples' Store, which stood on the site of Mill Boscobel Dial 12/27 1922 7  
GEORGE F. HILDEBRAND, cont'd... His increasing prosperity, from those days in the early '60's down to the time of his death, has been due to same close attention to business, the same scrupulous honesty, the same habits of thrift and industry that first won him the esteem and consideration of his employers and fellow-workers.  The death of Dwight Parker before long removed himn from the firm, and some time thereafter, John Pepper's interest was bought by George W. Parker.  In the meantime, the store building now occupied by the Miller's had been erected, and the old name---the Peoples' Store---had been changed to Parker, Hildebrand & Co.  During the '80s, Theodore Kronshage bought out George W. Parker, and in 1901 the business was incorporated under the present title, the Parker-Hildebrand Co.  In spite of his constant, active participation in the business, Mr. Hildebrand never lost the studious tastes of his boyhood.  There was not an evening of his life when health permitted that he did not spend with his  Boscobel Dial 12/27 1922 7  
GEORGE F. HILDEBRAND, con't....It was a clean and simple life, yet broad and tolerant in its judgment of others.    Mr. Hildebrand's interests naturally extended far beyond this community; he had many friends throughout the state, and elsewhere in this country and abroad.  But save an occasional business trip and one visit to Europe, he could not be persuaded to leave his home city, not even upon the frequent invitation of his relatives.  It was here that his heart lay.  It was here, among the associations of a life time, that he felt content and at peace.  And it is here, in this city to whow improvement and prosperity he has contributed through his business energy, that he has left the generous benefactions for the cultural and spiritual welfare of the community.  An inventory of the estate of Mr. Hildebrand shows his accumulated wealth to have been over $300,000.  His will is a lengthly document---through and precise---a characteristic of the maker.  Included in the property is the store building and stoc Boscobel Dial 12/27 1922 7

HILDEBRAND, con't...The sum of $25,000 is left in trust to the trustees under the will for the following uses and purposes:  "My said trustees shall, as soon after my decease as may be practicable, by and with the consent of the said city to abide by and perform the terms and conditions of this bequest, erect, complete and furnish a suitable free library building within the city of Boscobel."  The Christian Home Orphanage, a charitable institution located at Council Bluffs, Ia., is bequeathed $2,000 in cash.  The trustees and executors named under the will are Theo.

THEO. KRONSHAGE, SR. DIES IN MILWAUKEE.    Announcement of the death of Theo.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF THEODORE KRONSHAGE, SR.    When the book of life was closed for Theodore Kronshage, Sr., May 6, 1923, the city of Boscobel suffered the irreparable loss of an honored, respected citizen.    Mr. Kronshage possessed the rare faculty of attaching to himself by the warm ties of personal friendship, those with whom he came in contact.  His kindly disposition and his gentleness were among the most engaging qualities.  HIs successful career is an inspiration, for his achievements were the result of ability and persistent industry.  The example of this man who came to the land of promise with only his head and hands and a stout heart ought to be a lesson to our people.  The soapbox orabors, the bolsheviks, the I.W.W's and other cults preach the doctrine of division of wealth in this country.  They are deceivers.  Their doctrine will wreck any country which tries it.  The life of Theodore Kronshage, Sr., furnished the guide to all who would become pillars of good citizenship.  For over 50 years Boscobel Dial 5/23 1923 10

AGNES WILSON ACCEPTS POSITION IN LOS ANGELES.    Miss Agnes Wilson of Madison and formerly of Boscobel, who for several years as been employed along lines of welfare work and social service under the auspices of the American Red Cross, is now in Los Angeles, California, where she has a responsible and remunerative position as executive secretary of a new type of organization.  This i a mental hygiene clinic for treatment of children suffering from difficulties arising through faulty action or unsale balance of the nervous system.  The idea is more and more coming to the front that a large share of the failures and difficulties of life are in reality psychological.  That is they arise from a wrong view point or perhaps improper functioning of the mental and nervous system and this child guidance clinic is an effort to make a wider diagnosis and attack the difficulty at its source.  In organizing the clinic Miss Wilson worked under the National Committee of Mental Hygiene and the Commonwealth Fund of New York  Boscobel Dial 2/20 1924 1

Edward A.
