    • Albert Hackbart of Near Linwood Passed Away Tuesday Fumes From Gasoline Started Fire

      DRIVING SHED BURNED TO GROUND

      Albert Hackbart, a well known and highly respected farmer, residing seven miles west of Linwood, passed away at nine o'clock Tuesday morning as a result of burns received when the fumes from gasoline caught fire, causing an explosion in the driving shed on his farm on Thursday night. Deceased, who was severely burned about the legs and back suffered excruciating pain and in spite of the best of nursing and medical attention, poisoning set in and the unfortunate man passed away, being conscious practically to the end.
      The late Mr. Hackbart, who has done considerable threshing for farmers in the district, was engaged pouring gasoline from a large can into a smaller one in order to have it ready for next day's threshing operations. His seven year old daughter, Marie, was standing nearby holding a lantern and it is believed the fumes of the gasoline coming in contact with the lantern caused the gasoline to explode. The clothes of Mr. Hackbart caught fire immediately. His wife rushed to his aid from the house with a blanket and wrapped it about him but not before he was severely burned. The little girl escaped with severe burns to her hands and face. The driving shed caught fire and was burned to the ground, along with the contents which included a wagon, tractor, chopper and automobile.

      The late Mr. Hackbart was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hackbart of near Bamberg, and was aged 37 years. About fourteen years ago he married Miss Marian Zinkan, of Heidelberg, who survives with a family of seven children, namely, Carl, Frieda, Margaret, Marie, Alfred, Herbert and Kenneth. The parents, four brothers, Edwin, Oscar, Harvey and Nelson, and two sisters, Clara, (Mrs. Emil Schneider), and Olga (Mrs. Lorne Schmidt), also survive.

      The heartfelt sympathy of the whole community is extended to the bereaved family.
      The funeral will take place on Friday afternoon from the home of the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hackbart, to the Heidelberg Lutheran Church and cemetery for interment.
