Sadden Oeatli of & Business Man.
lr. Albert Dischinger, one of Port Clinton's best known business men and a universal favorite, died suddenly last Thursday night about 9 o'clock, from heart failure, aged 33 years.
He was teaching a young lady to ride a bicycle and had run up and down the street several times holding the wheel in an upright position when he complained of feeling ill and went to the residence of Mr. Pledger and asked for a drink of water. He had scarcely made the request when he sank down I upon the porch and expired.
Dr. de la JBarre was hastilv sum- moned, and he pronounced the cause of death to be heart failure superinduced from the exertion above described. The Doctor had treated him for heart disease and had cautioned him not to over-exert himself.
Mr. Dischinger was the eldest son of Mrs. Elizabeth Dischinger, and early in life was called upon to act the he^d of the household, as his father died when he was but a small boy. He was capable, honest and upright, and in ail his transactions he was just.
The responsibilities thrown upon his shoulders early in life had prematurely aged him, in fact as a boy he v/as al¬ ways a man, and thought of those who were in a maimer dependent upon him, first, and of himself later, if ever at all. He proved an ideal son to a widowed mother.
He was a carriage trimmer by trade, learning the business at the factory of Wm. Seutert. Later he was associated with the Port Clinton Buggy Co. His health failing him he retired from that firm and later embarked in the meat and provision business with his brother, Mr. George L. Dischinger, in which businesss he was engaged up to the time of his death.
He leaves a widowed mother, Mrs.
Elizabeth Dischinger, a sister, Mrs, J.
; Caspersen, and two brothers, Messrs,
| George L. and Otto 'Dischinger, to
j mourn his loss. */- -^ f~/$f$
The funeral was held Sunday after¬ noon at 2:30 from the U. JB. Church. The services were conducted by Key. Mr. Fletcher. His body was buried in Lakeview cemetery with all the boners of the Knights of Pythias, of which lodge he was a charter member.
