    Abraham Den Adel, died Wednesday morning at five o'clock, after lingering four days in an unconscious condition as a result of injuries received when he was struck by an automobile. Den Adel never rallied after the accident, and Dr. F. L. Wood, the attending physician, held out scant hopes of his recovery. Den Adel was engaged in cleaning the pavement Saturday afternoon on West Front Street. He was running his scraper from South to North on the street in front of the Hanover residence, when a machine driven by Sam Palmer, going west, drew near. Mr. Palmer turned out to the left to pass him. Den Adel, who had not heard the automobile swung around suddenly to retrace his steps. Mr. Palmer made a heroic effort to avoid striking him, but was unable to make the turn quickly enough. The fender knocked Den Adel in the left hip, and threw him against a high bank at the side of the street, where he fell on his head. The machine ran into the bank, damaging the front wheel. Den Adel was carried to the Ben Hoftiezer home, where he was cared for. Death came as a result of concussion of the brain.

    Mrs. Oldenmeyer, Jack Jacoby, Marie Bauman, and Miss Betsey Hoffiezer were eye-witnesses of the accident. Mrs. Oldenmeyer said that Palmer was driving at ordinary speed and that Den Adel turned in front of the machine so suddenly, that it was impossible to avoid striking him. Den Adel would have been thirty six years old Saturday. He was a native of Kansas. His loss is mourned by a widow and four children, Alvin, Gladys, Peter, and the baby, four weeks old, who has been named Abraham in memory of his father. Other relatives are his mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Den Adel, his brothers, William Cornelius and Peter, and his sisters Mrs. F. G. Knott, Mrs. H. Bol and Mrs. Tony Leenders, all of Lynden, and a brother, Henry, who lives in Minnesota. A sister Jennie, died on Jan. 27, 1913, exactly two years before him. General sympathy is expressed, not only for the Den Adel family, but also for Mr. Palmer, who during the many years of his residence in Lynden, has won the esteem of the community. No provision is made for street cleaners under the industrial insurance act of the state. In the larger cities the street cleaning department is under the civil services and is provided for in that way, but at the time the law was passed, no attention was given to those in third and fourth class cities. Funeral services will be held in the Reformed Church Friday afternoon at 1:45, the Rev. J. G. Brouwer conducting the services in the Holland language and the Rev. J. G. Breen in English. Six members of the Volunteer Fire Department, of which Den Adel was a charter member, will act as pall bearers. The firemen will attend the funeral in a body.
