Peculiar Death of Harry Mulholland.

Harry Mulholland, the 10 years old son of Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Mulholland whose home is on the Curran ranch in Shimer township 21 miles southeast of Coldwater, died about noon on last Friday.

The manner of his death was unusual. Harry and a younger sister were in the yard playing. Fastened on the clothes line was a pair of overalls, the lower part of the legs of the garment being fastened to the wire, thus forming a sort of a link or loop. Harry evidently in play put his head in this loop, and in some mysterious manner he was choked sufficiently to cause death in a short time. The little sister was not old enough to give the alarm, but in a short time the body was found by Mr. Curran and by some members of the family. Life was so nearly extinct, however that resuscitation was impossible. When found the body was touching the ground with the hands and feet, but still partially dangling with the overalls about the neck. It was a terrible shock to the family. The father was a way from home, his whereabouts being unknown, hence he probably as yet knows nothing of the death of his son. On Sunday forenoon brief funeral services were held at the home and were conducted by H. H. Scott. Burial was made in the Coldwater cemetery. Rev. W. L. Roberts officiated at the cemetery.
